We look at the energy management as a value engineering practise where energy optimisation and energy saving are done as part of the process of monitoring, controlling, and conserving energy in a building or facility where the initial design has been implemented successfully. The effort of Energy Management involves measurement, looking at the operation and implementing the correct solution to save the inherent energy which are being consumed or wasted. It involves metering your energy consumption, collecting the data to find opportunities to save energy and estimating how much energy could be saved for the client.

Energy Conservation

In reducing energy consumption, the key factor is to train our natural habit to be cautious in the use of energy and only to use when it is necessary. This is a practice that eventually we want to make it a habit and as well as a culture at every commercial and industrial workplace. Awareness training as well as knowledge impartation on energy conservation will help to form a good practice which we hope can form the habit everyone at every level not only at working environment but as well as at their own homes.  

Indirectly will help to increase your energy savings, you do not necessarily need to go out and purchase energy efficient products just yet. Energy conservation can be as simple as turning off lights or appliances when you do not need them. You can also use energy-intensive appliances less by performing workplace tasks manually.

The behaviour adjustments that have the highest potential for utility savings for example setting your air conditioner at higher temperature or setting it a 24 °C at normal days. Cooling costs constitute nearly half of general commercial and industrial sector utility bill as well as an average home’s utility bills, so these reductions in the intensity and frequency of cooling offer the greatest savings.

There are tools you can use to figure out where most of your electricity is going in your home and which appliances are using the most electricity on a day-to-day basis.

Energy Efficiency

In ensuring the usage of energy is at the most optimum, we need to ensure that we are using energy efficient equipment or old equipment are still at the acceptable energy consumption to maintain utility bill. Energy efficiency is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to combat climate change, reduce energy costs for consumers, and improve the competitiveness of local businesses. Energy efficiency is also a vital component in achieving net-zero emissions of carbon dioxide through decarbonization.

Based on Electricity Regulation 1994 (Amendments 2013) Regulation 101A (3) “Any equipment that meets all the requirements of efficient use of electricity under sub regulation (1) shall be affixed with an efficiency rating label in such form and manner as may be determined by the Commission”, which actually help the household equipment use by having an Energy Efficient Label.

In the similar manner, by integrating technology especially IoT devices we are able to perform some utility system monitoring to ensure the energy efficiency for example chiller plant is at its optimum. We will only be able to address the efficiency with data, “You only know what you know and You don’t know what You don’t know”. As such, monitoring device especially the IoT device comes in handy and disclosing to us what we do not know for us to optimise.

Renewable Energy

The Renewable Energy is booming, as innovation brings down costs and starts to deliver on the promise of a clean energy future. Malaysian solar PV generations are moving aggressively and being integrated into the national electricity grid without compromising reliability.

The solar PV is the most common and we have been aggressively promoting and making it accessible to everyone by becoming a one-stop solution provider in solar PV. With more than 10 years of experience in solar PV systems design and different PV technologies, we are your choice for a reliable investment for yourself and your business while moving towards a cleaner and greener future.

This means that renewables are increasingly displacing “dirty” fossil fuels in the power sector, offering the benefit of lower emissions of carbon and other types of pollution. But not all sources of energy marketed as “renewable” are beneficial to the environment. Biomass and large hydroelectric dams create difficult trade-offs when considering the impact on wildlife, climate change, and other issues. Here’s what you should know about the different types of renewable energy sources and how you can use these emerging technologies in your commercial or industrial workplace and even at your own home.

As renewable use continues to grow, a key goal will be to modernize Malaysia’s electricity grid, making it smarter, more secure, and better integrated across regions.


Energy Audit

For us to ensure that there is sustainability of energy in the future, energy audit activities are necessary to determine suitable steps to be undertaken to use energy efficiently. An energy audit is an examination of the energy consumption of the equipment or system to ensure that energy is being used efficiently. This is one of the responsibilities of the Registered Electrical Energy Manager (REEM) to conduct a walk-through/preliminary energy audit.

An energy audit is defined as the verification, monitoring and analysis of the use of energy and submission of technical report containing recommendations for improving energy efficiency with cost benefit analysis and an action plan to reduce energy consumption. However in Malaysia, it was defined as a process which is very much central for conducting an energy management project or in general an energy audit is a study conducted to identify where, when and how much energy is being used in the business and how to reduce the cost of energy for the business. Even though there are several definitions, the objective or goal is the same which is to reduce the energy consumption without compromising comfort and quality of the building. This guideline is meant for REEM who have basic understanding on energy audits, for them to conform to the requirements of the Efficient Management of Electrical Energy Regulations 2008 (EMEER 2008). However, the Detailed Energy Audit with measuring equipment will be the scope of the Energy Service Company (ESCO).

Energy Contracting


An energy performance contract, EPC, is the agreement between us as the ESCO and the client who owns or operate the facility where the energy efficiency project is to be made. The core of the agreement is that the ESCO provides expertise and knowledge on identification and assessment of the energy saving potential and the measures that should be part of the project. The ESCO will undertake risks associated with achieving the savings guaranteed by the project and the ESCO is paid for by the cost savings. During the contract period the ESCO will receive a portion of the energy cost savings as a repayment of the project cost and their services. When the payment period is over the services from the ESCO will cease and the installed equipment and full energy cost savings belong to the client.

EPC is developed to overcome some of the barriers to implementation of energy efficiency in facilities, which includes lack of technical expertise on assessment of saving potentials and opportunities as well as constraints on capital investment budgets. Facility owners know that energy costs are significant, and that these costs could be reduced by investing in proven and cost effective energy-saving technologies, systems and procedures. Yet they face a number of barriers before investing in energy efficiency. Some lack technical knowledge; others lack adequate finances or are unable to raise sufficient finances; while others have reservations about the ability of energy-saving equipment to perform as promised. EPC is an innovative form of contracting, developed to overcome the major barriers to delivering cost-effective energy efficiency. EPC can be used in any facility in which energy is used, including all types of buildings and industrial processes. It allows facility owners and managers to upgrade ageing and inefficient assets and paying for it over time from the energy savings guaranteed by the ESCO.

Energy Service Company (ESCO)

The acronym for ESCO is Energy Service Company and is a design and built contractor scope that is undertaken as service related to implementation of energy efficiency projects for the clients. As one of the ESCO company, we are able to provide all services under one single contract with the client, namely the Energy Performance Contract or whatever term which is mutually agreed with the client for example, Energy Service Contract, Energy Savings Contract and others.

We provide the ESCO services as a one-stop shop for energy efficiency projects, which will ease the process of project implementation, as the client does not need to manage all the technical stages in design of the system, project development, procurement and commissioning, and we as the appointed ESCO, will guarantee the savings that will occur. However, continuous supervision and management are required to ensure that the saving are achieved and that we will have satisfactory earnings. Thus, it is important to establish a good working partnership with the client and monitor their performance during the engagement since we are a stakeholder to translate the savings to earnings.

Energy Solutions

We have identified project with cutting-edge energy solutions that allow energy users to go low-carbon. By analysing and pursuing the required business conditions for enabling these solutions, YHWH SHAMMAH CREATIONS is helping our client to reduce CO2 emissions in line with the Paris Agreement.

Many of these low-carbon energy solutions are cross-sectoral and require collaboration across the value chain to develop sound business cases. However, there are many business cases which the clients are not aware of these new energy solutions and they may face higher up-front investment costs to implement them. New financing mechanisms and business models alongside cross-sectoral collaboration will help to make the business case, resulting in long-term profitability, increased performance and climate change mitigation.

The solution we believe our client is looking for the use of solutions that allow them to go low-carbon today by increasing demand for new energy solutions, facilitating the development of innovative business models as well as raising awareness with investors. These activities build on the cross-sectoral collaboration across the energy value chain which is already established.
