Tenaga Nasional Bhd’s (TNB) wholly owned subsidiary TNB Energy Service Sdn Bhd (TNBES) through its unit, Maevi Sdn Bhd, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with three companies as strategic partners for energy management system and smart home projects.
In a statement last Friday, the power utility said the MoU will see Maevi cooperating with two property-linked companies — Protasco Bhd and Tan & Tan Developments Bhd — as well as software and engineering company Diversified Gateway Solutions Bhd (DGSB).
The MoU with Protasco is for the supply and installation service of Maevi smart homes for housing development projects, while the one with Tan & Tan is for establishing a smart partnership on the efficient management and supervision of IGB Bhd’s assets, it said.
On the MoU with DGSB, TNB said it is for the collaboration to explore the energy management market through a joint-distribution programme.
“The company continues to provide intelligent electricity consumption services to consumer premises in Malaysia with the latest one through the strategic cooperation with its subsidiary and the three Bursa Malaysia’s listed companies,” it said.
The MoU was signed between Maevi CEO Izham Ismail, Protasco ED Edward Khoo, Tan & Tan director Tan Yee Seng and DGSB ED Robin Lim.
The signing ceremony was witnessed by Deputy Entrepreneur Development Minister Datuk Dr Mohd Hatta Ramli and TNBES MD Dr Ir Ahmad Jaafar Abd Hamid.
Meanwhile, Maevi had also launched its latest innovation on the intelligent energy management application system, known as Maevi-B, for industrial and commercial buildings.
According to Izham, Maevi-B is able to provide users with information regarding the value of their electricity usage.
“With this system, industrial owners are able to carry out intelligently energy monitoring, subsequently using the data to adapt to Industrial Revolution 4.0 and carry out energy efficiency efforts,” he said.
Maevi-B uses a cloud-based centralised integration system to provide multiple functions including monitoring, control and general viewing, as well as analysis for technical purposes.
The system is capable of real time direct energy monitoring, detailed and technical analysis, as well as provide tips based
on the data generated for consumers to get savings of up to 40% on electricity consumption.
