Malacca, Malaysia to be smart grid city

The government of Malaysia selected the historic province of Malacca, a small province on the Malay Peninsula for the proposed Energy Smart Grid City Malacca and the Green Special Economic Zone Malacca projects.

Both projects, expected to be injected with multibillion investment by private public investors and partnerships, will transform the historical state from an agricultural and small industry zone into a smart grid city.

Work on the development of the two smart grid projects will commence within the first-quarter of 2014.

As many as 20 research and development (R&D) centers will be built, creating high-skilled 6,800 engineering professionals in the smart grid industrial, renewable energy and clean technology sectors in that area and up to 300,000 new green jobs.
