The Green Technology Applications for the Development of Low Carbon Cities (GTALCC) project was initiated to generate direct greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions from at least five Malaysian cities. The objective of the project is to facilitate the implementation of low carbon initiatives and showcase a clear and integrated approach to low carbon development. The project is implemented by the Ministry of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change (MESTECC), with the Sustainable Energy Development Authority (SEDA Malaysia) as the lead consultant.
Malaysia intends to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity of GDP by 45% by 2030 relative to the emissions intensity of GDP in 2005. The urbanisation rate of Malaysia increased from 66.5% in 2005 to 74.3% in 2015. Cities in Malaysia are significant contributors to the country’s GHG emissions. Cities and states have struggled to translate the national GHG emission reduction agenda into local action. This is due to lack of capacity and resources to undertake city-level greenhouse gas inventories. Cities such as Putrajaya, Iskandar Malaysia and Hang Tuah Jaya have developed city-level GHG inventories.
MESTECC through the GTALCC project intends to develop an online city level GHG emissions reporting system which includes a web portal and web application. The web portal will be used to disseminate information on GHG emissions of Malaysian cities to the public. The web application will be used as a platform for local authorities to report their city level GHG emissions on an annual basis. The collected data from the system will be shared across with other ministries and agencies such as Ministry of Housing and Local Government, Ministry of Federal Territories, Ministry of Transport, Ministry of Economic Affairs, PLANMalaysia, Department of Statistics Malaysia and PLANMalaysia.
This work is part of Component 1 of the project which is policy support for the promotion of integrated low carbon urban development, which will enable cities to implement and adopt integrated low carbon urban development plans and programmes.
The online city level GHG emission reporting system is intended to achieve the following objectives:
i. To provide a platform to local authorities to report their city level GHG emissions on annual basis within their administrative boundary;
ii. To enable local authorities to access data from providers i.e Tenaga Nasional Berhad on electricity consumption data;
iii. To allow local authorities to benchmark their GHG emissions with other cities in Malaysia and globally; and
iv. To support local authorities in formulating low carbon development plans.
