Biomass rescues Sabah power shortages

The minister of plantation industries and commodities Tan Sri Bernard Dompok has claimed that the energy sources from biomass has the potential to be exploited to help tackle electricity shortages in Sabah, Malaysia.

Although these renewable sources will not replace traditional fossil fuels they will be used to expand Sabah’s energy supplies.

Dompock said: ‘It can only help towards generating electricity in Sabah because we have the facilities and resources.I feel these resources can be exploited but I did not say that these resources can replace other sources.’

Dompock went on to say that the future of coal depended on the Energy, Green Technology and Water Ministry.
