On 29 September 2015 the new Mayor of KualaLumpur Datuk Amin Nordin and senior staff of DBKL (Kuala Lumpur City Hall) met with Denmark’s Ambassador Nicolai Ruge for a talk on past and future collaboration between Kuala Lumpur and Denmark. Focus was on taking forward the collaboration on improved energy efficiency in public buildings.
The energy consumption of most public buildings in Malaysia can be reduced by 20-30% by retrofitting the buildings with modern and energy efficient technology, in particular air-conditioning and lighting equipment.
The Ambassador was accompanied by representatives of Danish Energy Efficiency Partners Sdn. Bhd. (DEEP), which has the Danish Climate Investment Fund as a partner, and who could share concrete, valuable experience from an existing collaboration with the State of Melaka.
