Kuching, 27 January 2015 — Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI), YB Datuk Dr Ewon Ebin today, officiated the Smart Village Initiative and the workshop on energy for off-grid villages in South East Asia at Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS).

The Smart Village Initiative was initiated last year by the Cambridge Malaysian Education and Development Trust (CMEDT) and the European Academies Science Advisory Council (EASAC). The initiative aims to look at technical, entrepreneurial and policy solutions to provide sustainable energy for development in off-grid rural communities. This endeavour was created for rural communities to enable them to effort technological developments. A series of workshop is being organised in six regions through-out the world to gather inputs from stakeholders who are involved in rural electrification projects.

The workshop is hosted by Malaysia for Southeast Asia countries and it is organised by the Academy of Sciences Malaysia (ASM), an agency under Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation and Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS).

The workshop which took place in UNIMAS, brings together leading scientists, thinkers and doers from across the region, providing new insights to policy makers and funding bodies at national, regional and global levels on rural energy access for development. The Smart Village Initiative intends to collaborate with other organisations that care about rural energy access and its related issues, including education, community health and SME enterprises.

Over the next two years the multidisciplinary Smart Villages team will work with key stakeholders in developing countries to ensure that the initiative is firmly rooted in addressing real-world issues, and achieve effective uptake and impact. International and local experts in natural and social science, engineering, including the humanities, will be brought together with local and regional stakeholders (entrepreneurs, villagers, NGO’s, financiers and policy makers) to develop insightful, bottom-up views, in addressing challenges of the village energy provision in becoming a smart village. The team will also meet the local villagers and taking into account their needs and aspirations.

“Sustainable development isn’t an indulgence, but can be a precursor for success. Smart cities and smart communities that link culture with sustainable development are not impossible,” said Datuk Dr Ewon Ebin during his speech. “I am therefore delighted to learn that the Academy of Science Malaysia has already taken an initiative to take a comprehensive look at the construction of smart communities beyond 2050. Indeed, we need to change our lifestyle if we are to develop towards a sustainable path”, he added.

The next Smart Village workshop will be held in India and Bolivia in late 2015 followed by West Africa and Central America in 2016

PUTRAJAYA, 21 JANUARY 2014 – Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI) are in the final stages of drafting the revised Atomic Energy Bill which will be tabled in the Parliament in the near future.

“The revised Atomic Energy Bill will encompass the “3S” aspects, namely Safety, Security and Safeguards, will provide a holistic approach to nuclear power management and regulation” said Dato’ Sri Dr. Noorul Ainur Mohd Nur, the Secretary General of MOSTI during the opening ceremony of “Atoms for Peace: Nuclear Technology in the 21st Century” Executive Talk.
“Under the Malaysian Economic Transformation Programme (ETP), deploying nuclear energy for power generation is one of the entry point projects under oil, gas and energy sector. The Government of Malaysia is studying the possibility of deploying nuclear energy to meet rising energy demands and to diversify the energy mix for Malaysia. To spearhead the initiative, Malaysia Nuclear Power Corporation (MNPC) has been formed to plan and coordinate the implementation of a nuclear energy development programme for Malaysia,” she added.

The Executive Talk today was presented by His Excellency Yukiya Amano, the Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).  In his presentation, HE Amano mentioned about the significant improvement in the efficient and safe performance of the nuclear industry in the past two decades. This reflects factors including improved design, better operating procedures, a strengthened and more effective regulatory environment and the emergence of a strong safety culture in the nuclear industry. He also mentioned that the IAEA promotes an integrated approach to nuclear safety, focusing on management systems, effective leadership and safety culture. He stressed that it is important that countries’ safety and security infrastructures keep pace with the latest developments in all areas of nuclear science and technology.

Merujuk kepada artikel yang disiarkan di akhbar KOSMO pada 7 Januari 2015, MetMalaysia tidak menolak kemungkinan fenomena cuaca sejuk yang pernah berlaku pada tahun lepas boleh berulang tidak semesti pada tahun ini.

Udara sejuk dari pergunungan Himalaya dan Siberia ketika musim sejuk di Hemisfera Utara merupakan penyebab utama kejadian suhu sejuk ekstrem berlaku di utara dan pantai timur semenanjung pada Januari tahun lepas. Kehadiran udara sejuk yang mendap menyebabkan keadaan kurang pembentukan awan, berikutan ini suhu lebih sejuk pada waktu malam sehingga mencatatkan suhu serendah 17.20C seperti apa yang berlaku pada tahun lepas di Kuala Krai. Walau bagaimanapun, fenomena berskala global seperti ini sukar diramalkan memandangkan banyak faktor lain yang mempengaruhi fenomena suhu sejuk ekstrem ini.
