Due to the Federal government’s policies in encouraging the development of renewable energy in efforts to steer the country toward consuming sustainable energy and turn to a low-carbon economy, we believe that Sabah gains from this, especially the efforts to transform Kudat into the state’s centre for renewable energy. Towards this end, and as a business entity advocating renewable energy and green technology, the organising of REGTech is prompt and apt and with our strong conviction that this inaugural event will help further intensify interests among stakeholders, be they GLCs or private corporations to assist the State Government in achieving a low-carbon economy in the near future.
Dolly said REGTech2017 serves as a platform where the renewable energy and green industry comes together to share information on the challenges facing the industry and discuss opportunities and solutions, as well as education for advancing Sabah’s renewable energy and green technology sector. We will be pleased to share our feedback with the State government, moving forward.
