Case Study: Intelligent Renewables (Smart Solar)
Malaysia's TNB Renewables Meets
Growing Solar Demand with AIoT
What is Southeast Asia’s largest listed power company doing to meet clean electricity demands nation-wide?
By applying big data analytics on an AIoT platform across large-scale solar farms with >230,000 solar panels.
TRe boosts innovation to meet solar energy demands.
Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) is the only electric utility company in Peninsular Malaysia, and the largest publicly-listed power company in Southeast Asia – with assets worth MYR 99.03B and >8.4 million customers.
TNB Renewables (TRe) Sdn. Bhd. is a subsidiary wholly owned by TNB.
To establish TRe as a leader in the region and achieve Malaysia’s renewable energy goals, the organization knew it needed to evolve. TRe wanted to digitalize the operations of its renewable energy assets, starting with its large-scale solar (LSS) farm in Sepang. The 50 megawatts (MW) solar farm is one of the largest in Malaysia with 238,140 solar panels generating more than 110,000 megawatt-hour (MWh) of energy in its first year of operation in 2019.
TRe partnered Envision Digital to deploy big data analytics on the intelligent EnOS™ AIoT platform across its LSS farms, dramatically enhancing its solar power generation capability. This paved the way for TRe to scale innovation across its operations and meet growing solar demand in Malaysia.
What TRe Achieved.
Envision Digital paved the way for TRe to scale renewable energy innovation.
