Miri has been selected as one of five pilot locations in Malaysia to be a Green Resort City to be based on the Low Carbon Cities Framework (LCCF) developed by Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water in collaboration with Malaysian Green Technology Corporation. This framework was initiated to promote sustainable developments that will subsequently reduce carbon emissions, endorsed by the National Green Technology and Climate Change Council in August 2011.
The memorandum is to undertake a joint study on benefits of light-emitting diode (LED) public lighting as installed at three public parks in the city.
The application of the LCCF is to see its effectiveness in assessing carbon emission at cities, townships and or neighborhood levels. With the installation of LED lighting at the three parks in the city, Miri City Fan, Taman Awam and Bulatan Park is believed to be the first ‘green parks’ in the Malaysia, and most likely the region, whereby the government (ministry), the implementing agency (MCC) and a leading industry player (Itramas) come together to objectively document impacts and benefits of the much discussed advantages of LED lighting in public spaces.
Apparently, the prime objective of this project is to ascertain the performance and energy savings of the implemented LED public lights compared to conventional lighting.
Public feedbacks and perspectives are encouraged to provide a more comprehensive report.
