JOHOR BARU: The state government plans to expand the low-carbon initiative introduced by the Iskandar Regional Development Authority (Irda) at all local authorities (PBT) beginning next year.
State Local Government, Science and Technology Committee chairman Tan Hong Pin said the initiative will be suitable for use throughout the state as a guideline in achieving a low carbon agenda.
For example, the Building Energy Monitoring and Reporting System (BEMRS) initiative had
so far only involved five PBTs within the Iskandar Malaysia Region.
“We know the role of Irda is limited in its territory but what they have done all this while is suitable for use based on the needs in other districts, and which is expected to start next year.
“So BEMRS is just as a method or approach to low-carbon initiatives.
“Irda can be advisers and give views at state level,” he said after opening the BEMRS workshop here and the launch of the Third Iskandar Malaysia Green Accord Initiative Award.
