Malaysia's Energy Needs - Overlooking our natural resources.

I have long been thinking as to why our Malaysian Government has yet failed to utilize all the wonderful endless clean sources of energy available to us courtesy of Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala?

I mean, let's face the facts. Are we not living in a land that is having the Equator running right smack across the entire Malay Peninsular and also across Sabah and Sarawak?

We are blessed to have hot scorching sunlight most of the year round and from my trips to the East Coast of the peninsular, felt the strong winds blowing in from the South China Sea, especially in the states of Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang and Johor.

Why is it that our nation's engineers have yet to tap into the wonderful gifts of solar and wind energy that God has graced our nation with and all these years, we just let such precious gifts go to waste without fail?

I have seen wind farms and solar energy plants be built in the USA from the documentaries and Discovery Channels where such enterprising and scientifically advanced professionals have successfully made use of their country's wind and solar energy to provide for the electrical needs of their factories, schools and public buildings and other infrastructures.



We drive through the many tunnels now available in the Klang Valley. Tunnels such as the SMART Tunnel, Sg Penchala Tunnel, Genting Sempah Tunnel, etc. have illuminating lights on 24/7.

Why can't the engineers build solar energy converter panels on major buildings nearby or on suitable hill areas for the Sg Penchala or Genting Sempah areas to collect the awesome power of the sun and convert it to electricity to power the light fixtures all year long without having to burn more fuel to produce the same power to run those lights, etc?

Wind power along the East Coast states can be channeled into providing for the energy needed to operate the street and public building lights, electrical system, etc.





Learn from the experience of the Americans as far as how to go about setting such windmills up along the breezy and windy coasts of our nation?

Learn from their achievements and also study about their mistakes so as to avoid repeating them here.



As a tropical nation, surely we ought to be able to tap into our country's natural resources and not depend on fossil fuel to run our nation's power supply companies and corporations.



I am just a blogger who wishes our nation to prosper and provide opportunities to all of its citizens, regardless of creed or color?

By harnessing the power of the sun, wind and ocean waves that we are so blessed to have and to enjoy, we can surely bring down our costs of running this country and at the same time, open up new employment opportunities for our nation's hundreds of thousands unemployed graduates and other interested folks.

Malaysians truly Boleh if they set their hearts and minds towards achieving their dreams and goals!

I for one think that we can do better!

Don't u agree?

Catatan lama saya yang berkaitan cerita ini.

Ladang Kincir bukan Ladang Khinzir

Ladang Kincir di Kelantan?

Alhamdulillah.

Syukur saya kepada Allah kerana bukan saya seorang sahaja yang memikirkan perkara ini.

Kita perlu melobi pihak kerajaan supaya membelanjakan duit beratus juta untuk menjana kuasa letrik dari sumber sumber berterusan kurniaan Ilahi begini untuk manfaat negara dan tidak membazirkan duit sebanyak itu untuk menanggung kos seorang doktor pergi makan angin atas kapal angkasa Soviet!

Kan lebih berfaedah dari dok membakar duit gitu didalam program Angka Sawan?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Adopt & Adapt modern technology. Instead of just wasting the people's money on useless glamorous projects or programs that are more of a sidetracking show to divert public attention from the mismanagement of the country by corrupt politicians , no matter whether from the BN or the PR?

Generate clean non polluting energy instead of burning more fossil fuel and hydrocarbons!

Good to have you write about the same matter, Hasbullah.

Bloggers ought to write more on matters that will benefit the public instead of zeroing on the butts of politicians all the bloody time!

Assalamu'alaikum Encik Zainol,

Potensi negara kita dalam menghasilkan tenaga alternatif tidak akan tercapai jika yang berkuasa/diberi kuasa hanya menumpukan kepada perut sendiri dan hal-hal remeh-temeh yang lain.

Dan entah kenapa, di kala kebanyakan negara-negara kuasa nuklear di barat ingin mengurangkan pergantungan terhadap tenaga tersebut, kita di sini terhegeh-hegeh pula mahukan kuasa nuklear. Ya, Iran sedang aktif mengusahakan sumber tenaga nuklear tapi lihatlah masalah yang dialami mereka. Bukan itu sahaja, kalau dibandingkan negara kita dan Iran itu, negara kita lebih bertuah kerana dikurniakan sumber-sumber alam yang pelbagai.

Zaman Atom yang bermula pada tahun '50an dahulu bakal berakhir. Tidak banyak kenangan manis yang boleh diingati. Tragedi Chernobyl dan Three Mile Island menunjukkan tenaga nuklear sepatutnya menjadi pilihan terakhir dan bukannya pilihan utama dalam merencana polisi tenaga di negara kita. Itu belum dikira lagi tahap pengurusan ala-ala Tanah Boleh yang kita selalu lihat. Entah-entah akan ada Chernobyl 2: The Oopss!

Saya bersetuju dengan tuan dan Encik Hasbullah bahawa tenaga-tenaga alternatif seperti solar, angin, ombak adalah harapan negara kita untuk masa hadapan.

It is very unfortunate that the people running Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) are ignorant of World Energy Initiatives to be taken very seriously by all countries or plain lazy, we are well aware the pump prices for petrol and diesel have dropped but it unfortunate to note that Electricity Tariff and Food Prices are the 2 things that did not drop the slightest and worst TNB took no efforts to plan for the adoption of cost saving sources of producing Electricity. Please advise what has the local consumer affairs minister & the Cabinet going to do about this?


World Governments are Pursuing & Using the "Wrong Technologies":-

GLOBAL WARMING HAS CRITICALLY AFFECTED THE SURVIVAL OF MANKIND THEREFORE ALL AND SUNDRY MUST TAKE SERIOUS ACTIONS TO CONTRIBUTE TOWARDS SOME REAL SOLUTIONS TO ADDRESS THE CAUSES OF THE PROBLEMS INSTEAD.

NUCLEAR POWER MAY NOT SOLVE GLOBAL WARMING ISSUES BECAUSE IT IS PRONE TO DISASTERS OWING TO UNFORESEEN ERRORS WHICH MIGHT REPEAT THE CHERNOBYL ACCIDENT, THE HARMFUL CONTAMINATION FROM WHICH MAY LAST CENTURIES.

USING FUEL CELLS AND BATTERIES TO RUN CARS ARE MYOPIC STRATEGIES AS THE SOURCE OF POWER WHICH IS COMING FROM HYDROGEN AND ELECTRICITY WHICH IN TURN ARE PRODUCED THROUGH THE USE OF THE POWER GENERATED BY POWER STATIONS USING COAL AS FUEL THUS POLLUTING THE ATMOSPHERE ELSEWHERE WITH NO ADVANTAGE IN TERMS OF THE CARBON FOOTPRINTS.

In order to save our World called the Planet Earth from further Global Warming and resultant adverse climatic changes causing all the unprecedented incremental Natural Disasters globally, we must go after the Best Technologies already available long ago despite the suppression of which by selfish vested interests of Fossil Oils' Companies.

Nikola Tesla the Greatest Inventor of the last century had invented the Technologies to run cars & power stations without fuel one Century ago and these technologies might still be classified top secret, immediately after his death. It is time to resurrect Nikola Tesla's life-works to produce electrical power without fuel and sharing them as it was intended by the Greatest Inventor himself.

Stanley Meyer had invented the Technology to turn Water into unlimited amount of fuel for making Unlimited Power Supply and to run cars and all internal combustion engines with HHO "on demand basis only" and so no storage of the HHO gases is required as it is safer & cheaper to store water instead, but unfortunately he was murdered. He had about more than 40 patents in this Technology. No one Car/Technology Company has pursued this technology further by buying up his technology and put them to good use to save our this planet Earth from Global Warming causing adverse climatic changes and disasters and hardship owing to unlimited and unrestrained use of Fossil Oils and Fuels, thus releasing & emitting enormous quantities of green house gases into the atmosphere. I think some company like Google should buy this Patented Technologies from Stanley Meyer's family and make this open source technology for the world to improve on and make good use of this Technology to save our world call Planet Earth.

On a two prongs approach, also those Zero Fuel Technologies invented by Nikola Tesla should be declassified and resurrected by the next President of USA to run cars and power-stations to save our Planet Earth from destruction and doom owing to unlimited and unrestrained use of Fossil Oils and Fuels for the whole of last Century. Our World the planet earth must be saved from the exploits of greed of the vested self interests of the fossil oil & fuels producers that pumped the unlimited amount of Greenhouse gases into our common atmosphere for the last century.

History had proven that owing to selfish gains and big business interests and the many Government interventions the "Free Energy Inventions & Innovations" for the good of mankind were suppressed by vested interests such as the life works of Nikola Tesla and the strategic others were even kept classified by the US Government after his death until the present day. 100 years has been lost and that now our planet earth is placed under the stress of Global Warming owing to the unlimited use of Fossil Oils and Fossil Fuels which in the first place was not needed if the Inventions of the Greatest Inventor, Nikola Tesla were not suppressed 100 years ago. If the Governments of the Nations of World are not going to make and initiate the required changes to stop the continuing use of fossil oils and fuels with alternative fuel someone without vested interests in the Fossil Fuel Industries has got to take the great Initiative to bring out the best technology to save our planet from impending doom.

The best inventions of the Greatest Inventor like Nikola Tesla were suppressed 100 years ago, but under present day scenarios, the works of Great Inventors like Stan Meyers were suppressed as he had been murdered and many others like him were also murdered. Instead of getting support in the scientific community he was ostracized and so as others like him.


The next President of USA must come forward to lead in creating the best alternative energy sources for the good of mankind to follow the footsteps of Nikola Tesla to share his inventions for the good of all mankind. Be it free energy by Coils tapping free energy from the Magnetics Poles of the Earth, Cold Fusion or Magnetic Engines or splitting of Water through electrolysis process on demand basis to produce Brown Gas or HHO to run the present day Vehicles' Internal Combustion Engines without modifications then why not to cut the pollutions from the use of fossil oils and fuels.
