KUALA LUMPUR: Sustainable Energy Development Authority (SEDA) Malaysia has appointed Ir. Sanjayan Velautham as chief executive officer effective Jan 9.

He brings over 25 years of experience in the industry, academia and research institutes, SEDA said in a statement on Wednesday.

“SEDA is confident that Sanjayan will be able to spearhead energy efficiency and renewable energy agenda in the country, and achieve the aspirational RE target of 20% in the national power mix by 2025,” it said.

“His vast background and extensive knowledge of the energy industry are valuable attributes which are of great relevance to SEDA.”

Sanjayan has served as the executive director of the Jakarta-based Asean Centre for Energy (ACE) since January 2015. Prior to that, he had worked in Singapore - initially with the Agency of Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) as a deputy director, then with General Electric as country manager for power generation services business.

He started his career at Tenaga Nasional Bhd within the power generations division and has served as the national project manager for the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP Malaysia)’s BioGen project.

Sanjayan has authored several publications in international conferences, journals and subject modules particularly in the field of energy.
