SECTION 4 - PROJECT INFORMATION 4 .1 DESCRIPTION OF THE SOLAR PV PLANT 4.1.1 Site and Layout The Project undertaken by Tadau Energy involves the financing, design, engineering, procurement, construction, installation, testing, commissioning, ownership, operation and maintenance of the Solar PV Plants to be located in Kudat, Sabah, Malaysia and associated facilities as described under the PPA 1 and the PPA 2, and includes any modification thereto. The Solar PV Plants consist of Unit 1 with the capacity of 2 MWac and Unit 2 with the capacity of 48 MWac. The output of Unit 1 will be generated by one (1) solar PV plant located at Site Yong East. Unit 1 will be connected to the 11 kV distribution network at PMU Kudat. The 11KV interconnection point is situated approximately 1km away from the site at PMU Kudat. The output of Unit 2 will be generated by three (3) solar PV plants each located at Site Yong East, Site Bak Bak and Site Yong West and will be connected to the 132 kV transmission network at PMU Kudat. The 132KV interconnection point at PMU Kudat is situated approximately 1km away from Site Yong East. The details of the Solar PV Plants are as follows: Solar Power Plant Plant/ PPA capacity Site Details Size of the leased land (acres) Unit 1/ PPA 1 2 MWac Site Yong East 17.72 acres Unit 2/PPA 2 1.5 MWac 12.6 MWac Site Bak Bak 35 acres 33.9 MWac Site Yong West 117.16 acres The sites where the Solar PV Plants is and shall be constructed are located in north and west of the town of Kudat, Sabah, Malaysia as shown in Appendix 5. The Project Lands are leased for a period of 23 / 24 years. For details, please refer to Section 4.5 of this Information Memorandum. Access to Site Yong East and Site Yong West shall be through the main highway of Jalan Kota Belud-Kudat. Site Bak Bak will be accessible through Jalan Sin San road to the south of the site. 30
  41. 4 .1.2 Solar PV Plants Components and Technology The Solar PV Plants shall consist of a solar array (being solar PV modules which convert sunlight into DC electrical energy and mounting structure) and inverters that converts DC to AC. The solar PV modules shall be connected in series which shall be connected to the AC distribution box consisting of DC fuses, DC isolators and DC surge protection devices. The collection of DC power generated by the solar PV modules shall be connected to the grid tied inverters. The grid tied inverters will subsequently convert the DC electricity to AC for connection to the utility grid. The collection of AC power from the inverters shall then be stepped up from low voltage AC of 480V to medium voltage AC of 11kV for Unit 1 and 33kV for Unit 2. The output AC power at the 33kV level from each of the three (3) sites of Unit 2 shall then be collected in a collection centre located at Site Yong East and shall then be stepped up to 132kV for its interconnection to the transmission network. The connection point for Unit 1 will be located at PMU Kudat at 11 kV (distribution network). For Unit 2, the connection point will be located at PMU Kudat at 132kV. Appropriate meteorological measuring and/or monitoring facilities for the Solar PV Plants shall be installed to provide weather and power output monitoring. The figure below shows a simplified diagram of how a solar power plant functions along with the roles of the main equipment. 31
  42. The following sets out the key components of the Solar PV Plants : 4.1.2.1 Solar PV modules and modules mounting system Solar PV modules are a core component of the solar power generation system. The solar PV modules convert solar radiation directly into electricity through the PV effect in a silent and clean process that requires no moving parts. The PV effect is a semiconductor effect whereby solar radiation falling onto the semiconductor PV cells generates electron movement. The output from a solar PV cell is DC electricity. Each Solar PV module consists of 72 solar cells. The PV modules are connected in strings (as described in Section 4.1.2.2 below) to produce the required DC power output. The solar PV modules installed in this Project are monocrystalline silicon PV modules from JA Solar Sdn Bhd, with model number JAM6(k)-72-350/PR and the specification of 350Wp per module, and have a twenty five (25)-year manufacturer’s warranty. The solar PV modules will be mounted on a fixed angle structure with a six degree (6o) inclination in order to optimize the PV conversion from sunlight into DC. Advantages of this arrangement include the simplicity of the system, easy installation, compact layout and the saving of space, allowing for the preferred maximum power per unit area of output. 4.1.2.2 Inverters Tadau Energy has selected string inverters which are adopted in a modular design for the Project. The string inverters are required to convert the DC electricity to AC for connection to the utility grid. At the string inverter, there are several strings connected in parallel, each of them comprising several solar PV modules. The string inverters allow for Maximum Power Point (“MPP”) tracking function, which optimizes the string inverters’ efficiency. The advantages of the string inverters are that they have low power consumption, a low failure rate, are easy to maintain, small sized, light weight, space saving and reduce civil engineering works. The string inverter used for the Project is the “Huawei SUN200042KTL String Inverter” (“Huawei Inverter”). The Huawei Inverter has the capability of fault ride through (“FRT”), which is a standard feature, with the ability to continuously operate during distribution system voltage fluctuation. The Huawei Inverter also has a five (5)year warranty. The Huawei Inverter includes the solar array wiring scheme which is primarily the DC and AC cable connection. To illustrate, there are a total of two sub-arrays in Unit 1. Typically, each array electrical connection consists of the following: 20 modules connected in series to form one string, 7 strings connected into 42kW string inverters for group 1 and 6 strings connected into 32
  43. 42kW string inverters for group 2 , with two of each group connected to a 2-in-1 AC distribution box, and every 13 AC distribution boxes connected a step-up transformer. 4.1.2.3 Step-up Transformers for the SPP Interconnection Facility The SPP Interconnection Facility of Unit 1 and Unit 2 serves to step up the AC power output of the solar energy. Generally, the step-up transformer serves to step up the output from the inverters to the required grid voltage. In relation to Unit 1, the Solar PV Plant’s DC power output is converted to 480V AC using the DC/AC inverters. The power generated is subsequently stepped-up to 11kV by two units of 0.48/11kV 1.25 MVA transformers. The power generated is then connected to the SPP 11kV Substation via a 11kV overhead aerial bunch cable (“ABC”) which is approximately 1km, and finally, it is then connected to PMU Kudat’s switchgear. For Unit 2, the SPP Interconnection Facility comprises a new 132/33 kV substation (“Collector Substation”) which serves to guide the AC power output of the DC/AC inverters from Site Yong East, Site Yong West and Site Bak Bak that are transferred to the Collector Substation via 33kV overhead lines. The SPP Interconnection facility for Unit 2 also includes a 132/33kV 60 MVA power transformer (“Interconnection Transformer”) which serves to step up to the AC power marshalled at 33kV to 132kV. 4.1.2.4 SPP Interconnector The SPP Interconnector in respect of Unit 1 comprises the distribution line(s), underground cables and associated facilities between the Solar PV Plants and PMU Kudat for Unit 1, whereas the SPP Interconnector in respect of Unit 2 comprises an underground cable of approximately 1km, which is connected to the 132kV cable termination of the Interconnection Transformer at the Collector Substation on one end and the 132kV cable termination of the newly equipped cable sealing end at the existing spare skeleton bay at PMU Kudat on the other. 4.1.2.5 SPP Works The SPP Works comprises the extension of one lot of 11kV switchgear at PMU Kudat for Unit 1 and extension work of one bay of PMU Kudat for Unit 2. 4.1.2.6 Communication Unit 1’s data will be uploaded to SESB for load scheduling, and requires a physical fibre channel path connecting Unit 1 to PMU Kudat via Unit 2. The Unit 1 switching station is not equipped with Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (“SDH”) and Remote Terminal Unit (“RTU”) equipment. However, Unit 2’s Collector Substation equipment is installed with dedicated SDH and RTU. The SDH and RTU at Unit 2’s Collector Substation will have a fiber optic 33
  44. equipment network installed to link with PMU Kudat Unit 1 , and is designed to share Unit 2’s SDH and RTU to upload the solar PV plant data and equipment data to SESB for load scheduling. As such, Unit 1’s switching station is only configured with switches, a fibre optic cable and an Optical Distribution Frame (“ODF”), whereas Unit 2 comprises a communication system, RTU and telecontrol equipment for network connectivity with the Penampang Main Control Centre (“MCC”) and Wisma SESB Backup Control Centre (“BCC”) for supervisory monitoring, meteorological measuring facilities (MMF) functions and data acquisition for the Solar PV Plants using the equipment of the main optical fibre SDH communication system. When the SDH communication system is commissioned and integrated with SESB’s existing dedicated optical fibre communication system, the Telecommunication Network Management System (TNMS) workstation located at MCC and BCC will be able to provide remote supervisory monitoring, data acquisition and control of the new SDH communication equipment in real-time. Unit 1’s SPP Interconnector line protection will use a direct fibre optic channel connecting to PMU Kudat. An all-dielectric selfsupporting (ADSS) optical fiber cable will be erected along with the overhead ABC, and Unit 1 and PMU Kudat will only be equipped with ODF and a fibre optic terminal box to achieve a direct fibre line differential protection for information interchange. The Unit 2 interconnector line protection will be using a direct fibre optic channel connecting to PMU Kudat electrical substation. 4.1.2.7 Tariff Energy Metering Each of Unit 1 and Unit 2 consists of one (1) main and one (1) backup tariff energy meter which have the same configuration as the metering equipment at PMU Kudat for energy metering purposes. The features of the tariff energy meters are as follows: (i) Two communication facilities (Ethernet and Serial ports) are required for metering data transmissions from the site to remote meter reading (“RMR”) Data Centre via two optical fibre telecommunication channels provided by Tadau Energy for remote telemetering purposes. (ii) The energy meter shall be provided with a Global Positioning System (“GPS”) interface for time synchronizing between the energy meter and time GPS. The GPS input signal shall be acquired from GPS of the substation automation system or any other necessary equipment.

Energy Payments If, other than the events or circumstances described in item (i) to (vi) above and any defects in (a) the SPP Interconnection Facility and/or the SPP Interconnector or (b) the SPP Works in accordance with the provisions of the PPA 1, SESB fails to accept the Net Electrical Output as may be generated and delivered by Tadau Energy, then SESB shall pay Tadau Energy the Non-Acceptance Payment for such period SESB fails to accept the Net Electrical Output in accordance with the PPA 1. The Energy Payments are calculated in accordance with Appendix G of the PPA 1, as follows: Energy Payment : EP = (NEOT1i x ER) + (NEOT2i x EER) EP = the Energy Payment (in RM) in such Billing Period (as defined in the PPA 1) ER = the prevailing Energy Rate (in RM/kWh) applicable for that Billing Period 42
  53. EER = the Excess Energy Rate (in RM/kWh) for that Billing Period NEOi = the total Net Electrical Output (in kWh) delivered in such Billing Period NEOT1i = the Net Electrical Output (in kWh) delivered in such Billing Period not exceeding MAAQ for such Contract Year NEOT2i = the Net Electrical Output (in kWh) delivered in such Billing Period exceeding MAAQ for such Contract Year MAAQ = the Maximum Annual Allowable Quantity (in kWh) calculated as follows: MAAQ = [A quantum determined as a function of Unit 1 Contracted Capacity x (365 x 24) x Capacity Factor]MWh x n ÷ N, when the capacity of the Unit 1 as certified by the Independent Engineer is not less than the Unit 1 Contracted Capacity; or (b) MAAQ = ([A quantum determined as a function of Unit 1 Contracted Capacity x (365 x 24) x Capacity Factor]MWh x n x Revised Unit 1 Contracted Capacity) ÷ (N x Unit 1 Contracted Capacity), when the Unit 1 Contracted Capacity is revised downwards to reflect the actual capacity of the Unit 1 ANEOm = the aggregate of NEOi for each Billing Period (in kWh) in such Contract Year including such Billing Period i = an index representing each of the preceding Billing Period i in such Contract Year n = the actual number of days in the prevailing Contract Year N = (a) 365, for all years; or (b) 366, for a leap year Capacity Factor (ix) (a) = 19.17% Billing and Payment A Billing Statement is to be issued monthly starting from the Unit 1 COD. SESB shall within thirty (30) days of receipt of the Billing Statement pay to Tadau Energy the Energy Payment and/or the NonAcceptance Payment (if any) invoiced in such Billing Statement (but 43
  54. less any amount due to SESB from Tadau Energy (including but not limited to the Non-Delivery Payment (as described below) as set out in the PPA 1) and less any amount in the Billing Statement disputed by SESB in good faith which is to be settled under the PPA 1). Late payment will be subject to a Default Rate (being one per cent (1%) above the base lending rate then in effect at the principal office of Malayan Banking Berhad or its successor-in-title). (x) No Set Off Except as otherwise provided in the PPA 1, all payments by either party to the other party under the PPA 1 shall be made free of any restriction or condition and without deduction on account of any amount claimed from the other party which is disputed in good faith by that party. (xi) Energy Rate Review and Adjustments At the date of the execution of the PPA 1, the Energy Rate is calculated from the financial model as confirmed by the Suruhanjaya Tenaga to be the basis of the award of the 2 MWac Project to Tadau Energy as set out in the PPA 1 (“PPA 1 Initial Financial Model”). SESB and the Suruhanjaya Tenaga shall be entitled to amend the PPA 1 Initial Financial Model, or the then prevailing PPA 1 Updated Input Financial Model (being the PPA 1 Initial Financial Model as updated pursuant to the PPA 1) to determine and reduce the Energy Rate (i) on the occurrence of the Unit 1 COD, (ii) in the event of a failure by Tadau Energy to deliver input data and information specified in the PPA 1 (“PPA 1 Input Data”) within the stipulated time frame or comply with its obligations and/or warranties under Clause 7.2(b) or Clause 7.5 of the PPA 1 or (iii) one (1) year after the Unit 1 COD. Upon determination of the Energy Rate by the PPA 1 Updated Input Financial Model by SESB and the Suruhanjaya Tenaga, the Energy Rate shall be adjusted downwards to reflect such determination with effect from the month following the determination. In the event of a failure by Tadau Energy to deliver PPA 1 Input Data within the stipulated time frame or comply with its obligations and/or warranties under Clause 6.4(b) or Clause 6.5 of the PPA 1, the PPA 1 Initial Financial Model or the PPA 1 Updated Input Financial Model, as the case may be, shall be revised so that the Energy Rate shall be seventy five percent (75%) of the then prevailing Energy Rate. If: (a) the construction costs of the 2 MWac Project is reduced below the amounts appearing in the PPA 1 Initial Financial Model or the then existing PPA 1 Updated Input Financial Model, as the case may be, the Energy Rate shall be adjusted downwards to reflect fifty percent (50%) of the construction costs reductions. (b) the financing costs of the 2 MWac Project is reduced below the amounts appearing in the PPA 1 Initial Financial Model or the then existing PPA 1 Updated Input Financial Model, as the 44
  55. case may be , the Energy Rate shall be adjusted downwards to reflect sixty percent (60%) of the financing costs reductions. (c) Tadau Energy received any incentive or benefit in respect of Taxes from any Government Entity at any time from the date of the PPA 1 up to one (1) year after the Unit 1 COD, SESB shall be entitled to reflect the whole of such incentive or benefit when revising the Energy Rate. Any downwards adjustment to the Energy Rate as set out above shall be based on each separate and independent savings as specified in items (a), (b) and (c) above without the aggregation of all differences, changes or variations in relation to such savings provided that if the foreign exchange rate in relation to such savings applied in both the EPC Contract 1 and the PPA 1 Initial Financing Documents at the time of the Commencement Date under PPA 1, being the date notified by Tadau Energy to SESB on which the construction work at Site Yong East has started (“PPA 1 Commencement Date”) and the PPA 1 Financial Closing Date for the PPA 1 Initial Financing Documents exceeded the reference foreign exchange rate of RM4.20 for each U.S. Dollar, any downwards adjustment to the Energy Rate due to any savings as specified in items (a) and (b) above shall be based on the net savings through the aggregation of all differences, changes or variations in relation to the savings as specified in items (a) and (b) above. (xii) Delay Compensation Tadau Energy agrees to pay SESB by way of pre-ascertained and agreed compensation the following: (a) if, due to the default of Tadau Energy or its contractors or agents under the PPA 1, the Unit 1 COD does not occur on the Scheduled COD of Unit 1, Tadau Energy shall compensate SESB an amount equal to Ringgit One Thousand (RM1,000.00) per day for each day (or any part thereof) of delay, commencing on the Scheduled COD of Unit 1 until the earlier of (i) the Unit 1 COD; (ii) the date on which the PPA 1 is terminated by SESB in accordance with the provisions of the PPA 2; and (iii) one hundred and eighty (180) days after the Scheduled COD of Unit 1; and (b) if Tadau Energy abandons the 2 MWac Project after the PPA 1 Effective Date, Tadau Energy shall forthwith compensate SESB an amount equal to Ringgit One Hundred and Eighty Thousand (RM180,000.00).

(xviii) Commencement of Initial Operation Date No generation of solar PV energy from the Plant in an interconnected mode with the Distribution Network may take place and the PPA 1 Initial Operation Date may not occur until (i) all interconnection protective devices in relation to the Unit 1 have been installed by Tadau Energy and been inspected and approved by SESB, (ii) all the relay types and relay settings in relation to the Unit 1 have been installed by Tadau Energy and been approved by SESB; and (iii) the SESB has confirmed in writing, within a reasonable period, that the operation of the Unit 1 with the Distribution Network may commence. (xix) Consequences of Delay by SESB If, otherwise than due to any default by Tadau Energy, the Unit 1 COD is delayed by: (a) the failure by SESB to inspect or approve without reasonable cause the interconnection protective devices referred to in the PPA 1; or (b) the failure by SESB without reasonable cause to accept the required generation to enable the testing of the Unit 1, then the Scheduled COD of Unit 1 shall be extended by one (1) day for each day the Unit 1 COD is delayed as a result of items (a) or (b) above. (xx) COD Tadau Energy shall provide SESB with thirty (30) days’ prior notice of the proposed Unit 1 COD, and written confirmation that the Unit 1 48
  59. COD has occurred within twenty four (24) hours after the occurrence of the Unit 1 COD. If Tadau Energy notifies SESB that the Unit 1 COD can be achieved earlier than the Scheduled COD of Unit 1, SESB may agree to an earlier Unit 1 COD from which Energy Payments shall be payable in accordance with the PPA 1. (xxi) Revised Contracted Capacity If the test results of the performance tests conducted on the Unit 1 to be submitted to SESB no later than the Unit 1 COD, show that declared capacity of the Unit 1 as certified by the Independent Engineer: (a) is more than the Unit 1 Contracted Capacity, then the Unit 1 Contracted Capacity shall be used for the purpose of the calculation of the payments set out in Appendix G of the PPA 1 for the remainder of the PPA 1 Term, unless revised in accordance with the PPA 1; (b) is less than the Unit 1 Contracted Capacity, then the Unit 1 Contracted Capacity shall be revised downwards to reflect the actual capacity of the Unit 1 as certified by the Independent Engineer. In the event that the test results of the performance tests conducted on the fifth (5th), tenth (10th) and fifteenth (15th) anniversary of the Unit 1 COD (each a “PPA 1 Performance Test Date”) in accordance with the PPA 1 show that the capacity of the Unit 1 is less than the Unit 1 Contracted Capacity, then the Unit 1 Contracted Capacity shall be revised downwards to reflect the actual capacity of the Unit 1. In the event of a failure by Tadau Energy to comply with the aforesaid obligations, the Unit 1 Contracted Capacity shall be revised downwards to be the lower of (i) seventy five percent (75%) of the then prevailing Unit 1 Contracted Capacity; and (ii) seventy five percent (75%) of the highest load of the Unit 1 as measured by the SESB Metering Equipment during a period of thirty (30) days immediately preceding the PPA 1 Performance Test Date. (xxii) Consequences of Tadau Energy’s Failure to Deliver Net Electrical Output If, otherwise than due to an Emergency Condition, an interruption due to a Force Majeure Event affecting Tadau Energy or any default of omission on the part of SESB, the total Net Electrical Output delivered by the Unit 1 in a Contract Year is less than seventy percent (70%) of the DAQ of such Contract Year, Tadau Energy shall pay SESB the Non-Delivery Payment in accordance with the PPA 1. (xxiii) The SPP Interconnection Facility, the SPP Interconnector and the SPP Works Tadau Energy shall complete the construction, installation and testing of the SPP Interconnection Facility, the SPP Interconnector and the 49

Tadau Energy shall at its cost and expense, acquire all necessary ownership and/or all access rights relating to the land on which the SPP Works shall be constructed and located, if applicable. Tadau Energy shall transfer to SESB and take all actions necessary to effect the transfer of all rights, title and interest to the completed SPP Works, free from encumbrances and defects and without any outstanding works subsisting at least twenty (20) days before the PPA 1 Initial Operation Date so that SESB shall become the owner thereof. SESB may, at its sole discretion, take operational control of the SPP Works by issuing a provisional certificate of taking over of operations. Upon such transfer, all property and title in such completed and transferred SPP Works shall pass to SESB. Tadau Energy warrants that the SPP Works will be free from defects. The obligation to correct any defects shall continue for twenty four (24) months from the date of transfer of the SPP Works to SESB. The period may be extended by an additional twenty four (24) months in respect of any repaired or replaced work, provided that no warranty shall extend beyond a period of forty-eight (48) months from the date of transfer of the SPP Works to SESB. Tadau Energy also provides a warranty against latent defects in the SPP Works for a period of sixty (60) months from the date of transfer. If, as a result of any defect in (a) the SPP Interconnection Facility and/or the SPP Interconnector or (b) the SPP Works, the Distribution Network is unable to accept Net Electrical Output from the Unit 1, Tadau Energy shall not be entitled to any Energy Payment and/or Non-Acceptance Payment during such period. (xxiv) Insurance Tadau Energy undertakes to SESB that it shall maintain or procure to be maintained in effect the following insurance policies and coverage with respect to the Unit 1 and where applicable, the SPP Interconnection Facility, the SPP Interconnector and the SPP Works: (a) all insurances required by law; (b) such insurance as is appropriate and customary for a prudent PV energy independent power producer; and (c) without prejudice to item (b) above, all insurances as required under the PPA 1 Financing Documents.

  78. NEOT2i MAAQ = = the Net Electrical Output (in kWh) delivered in such Billing Period exceeding MAAQ for such Contract Year calculated based on the following conditions: (a) NEOT2i = 0, when ANEOm + ENEO ≤MAAQ; or (b) NEOT2i = ANEOm – MAAQ – ENEO, when ANEOm + ENEO > MAAQ and ANEOm-l + ENEO ≤MAAQ; or (c) NEOT2i = NEOi, when ANEOm-l; + ENEO > MAAQ the Maximum Annual Allowable Quantity (in kWh) calculated as follows: (a) MAAQ = [A quantum determined as a function of Unit 2 Contracted Capacity x (365 x 24) x Capacity Factor]MWh x n ÷ N, when the capacity of the Facility as certified by the Independent Engineer is not less than the Unit 2 Contracted Capacity; or (b) MAAQ = ([A quantum determined as a function of Unit 2 Contracted Capacity x (365 x 24) x Capacity Factor]MWh x n x Revised Unit 2 Contracted Capacity) ÷ (N x Unit 2 Contracted Capacity), when the Unit 2 Contracted Capacity is revised downwards to reflect the actual capacity of the Facility ER = the prevailing Energy Rate (in RM/kWh) applicable for that Billing Period EER = the Excess Energy Rate (in RM/kWh) for that Billing Period ANEOm = the aggregate of NEOi for each Billing Period (in kWh) in such Contract Year including such Billing Period ANEOm-l = the aggregate of NEOi for each Billing Period (in kWh) in such Contract Year excluding such Billing Period ENEO = the aggregate of ENEOP in such Contract Year ENEOP = the equivalent Net Electrical Output (in kWh) during such period P calculated based on the following conditions: (a) AEQ x P x 2, when ENEOP-l + ANEOT1 ≤MAAQ; or 68
  79. (b) ENEOP = 0, when ENEOP-l + ANEOT1 > MAAQ, provided always that Σ[ANEOT1 + ENEOP] shall not exceed MAAQ and such total Net Electrical Output is subject to the provisions of the PPA 2; i = an index representing each of the preceding Billing Period i in such Contract Year n = the actual number of days in the prevailing Contract Year N = (a) 365, for all years; or (b) 366, for a leap year Capacity Factor (ix) = 19.17% Billing and Payment A Billing Statement is to be issued monthly starting from the Unit 2 COD. SESB shall within thirty (30) days of receipt of the Billing Statement pay to Tadau Energy the Energy Payment and/or the NonAcceptance Payment (if any) invoiced in such Billing Statement (but less any amount due to SESB from Tadau Energy (including but not limited to the Non-Delivery Payment as set out in the PPA 2) and less any amount in the Billing Statement disputed by SESB in good faith which is to be settled under the PPA 2). Late payment will be subject to a Default Rate (being one per cent (1%) above the base lending rate then in effect at the principal office of Malayan Banking Berhad or its successor-in-title). (x) No Set-Off Except as otherwise provided in the PPA 2, all payments by either party to the other party under the PPA 2 shall be made free of any restriction or condition and without deduction on account of any amount claimed from the other party which is disputed in good faith by that party. (xi) Energy Rate Review and Adjustments At the date of the execution of the PPA 2, the Energy Rate is calculated from the financial model as confirmed by the Suruhanjaya Tenaga to be the basis of the award of the 48 MWac Project to Tadau Energy as set out in the PPA 2 (“PPA 2 Initial Financial Model”). SESB and the Suruhanjaya Tenaga shall be entitled to amend the PPA 2 Initial Financial Model, or the then prevailing PPA 2 Updated Input Financial Model (being the PPA 2 Initial Financial Model as updated pursuant to the PPA 2) to determine and reduce the Energy Rate (i) on the occurrence of the Unit 2 COD, (ii) in the event of a failure by Tadau Energy to deliver input data and information specified 69
  80. in the PPA 1 (“PPA 2 Input Data”) within the stipulated time frame or comply with its obligations and/or warranties under Clause 7.2(b) or Clause 7.5 of the PPA 2 or (iii) one (1) year after the Unit 2 COD. Upon determination of the Energy Rate by the PPA 2 Updated Input Financial Model by SESB and the Suruhanjaya Tenaga, the Energy Rate shall be adjusted downwards to reflect such determination with effect from the month following the determination. In the event of a failure by Tadau Energy to deliver PPA 2 Input Data within the stipulated time frame or comply with its obligations and/or warranties under Clause 7.2(b) or Clause 7.5 of the PPA 2, the PPA 2 Initial Financial Model or the PPA 2 Updated Input Financial Model, as the case may be, shall be revised so that the Energy Rate shall be seventy five percent (75%) of the then prevailing Energy Rate. If: (a) the construction costs of the 48 MWac Project is reduced below the amounts appearing in the PPA 2 Initial Financial Model or the then existing PPA 2 Updated Input Financial Model, as the case may be, the Energy Rate shall be adjusted downwards to reflect fifty percent (50%) of the construction costs reductions. (b) the financing costs of the 48 MWac Project is reduced below the amounts appearing in the PPA 2 Initial Financial Model or the then existing PPA 2 Updated Input Financial Model, as the case may be, the Energy Rate shall be adjusted downwards to reflect sixty percent (60%) of the financing costs reductions. (c) Tadau Energy received any incentive or benefit in respect of Taxes from any Government Entity at any time from the date of the PPA 2 up to one (1) year after the Unit 2 COD, SESB shall be entitled to reflect the whole of such incentive or benefit when revising the Energy Rate. Any downwards adjustment to the Energy Rate as set out above shall be based on each separate and independent savings as specified in items (a), (b) and (c) above without the aggregation of all differences, changes or variations in relation to such savings provided that if the foreign exchange rate in relation to such savings applied in both the EPC Contract 2 and the PPA 2 Initial Financing Documents at the time of the PPA 2 Commencement Date and the PPA 2 Financial Closing Date for the PPA 2 Initial Financing Documents exceeded the reference foreign exchange rate of RM4.20 for each U.S. Dollar, any downwards adjustment to the Energy Rate due to any savings as specified in items (a) and (b) above shall be based on the net savings through the aggregation of all differences, changes or variations in relation to the savings as specified in items (a) and (b) above. (xii) Delay Compensation Tadau Energy agrees to pay SESB by way of pre-ascertained and agreed compensation the following: 70
  81.

(a) is beyond the reasonable control of and occurs without fault or negligence on the part of the party claiming it as a Force Majeure Event; and (b) causes a delay or disruption in the performance of any obligation under the PPA 2 despite all reasonable efforts of the party claiming it as a Force Majeure Event to prevent it or mitigate its effects. Subject to satisfying the foregoing criteria, Force Majeure Events include without limitation, the following: (a) strikes or lockouts and/or other work stoppages or industrial action (other than those solely affecting the party claiming the same as a Force Majeure Event); (b) acts of public enemies or terrorists or acts of war, whether or not war is declared, acts of force by a foreign nation or embargo; (c) public disorders, insurrection, rebellion, sabotage, riots or violent demonstrations; (d) explosions, fire, earthquakes, landslides, subsidence, sabotage, and/or other natural calamities and acts of God; (e) unusually severe weather conditions; (f) expropriation or compulsory acquisition by any Government Entity; (g) failure to obtain or renew any Government Authorisations; and (h) any force majeure event affecting the performance of any person that is a party to the EPC Contract 2 or other contract between Tadau Energy and such person relating to the construction, operation or maintenance of the Unit 2. (xxvi) Effect of Force Majeure Event and Consequences Subject to the limitations set out in the PPA 2, if either party is rendered unable by reason of a Force Majeure Event to perform any obligation under the PPA 2, then upon that party giving notice of Force Majeure, those obligations of that party shall be suspended or excused to the extent their performance is affected by the Force Majeure Event. The Scheduled COD of Unit 2 shall be extended by one (1) day for each day the Unit 2 COD is delayed by a Force Majeure Event. The PPA 2 Term shall be extended by one (1) day for each day in the event that (i) the Unit 2 is unavailable after the Unit 2 COD due to any Force Majeure Event affecting the Unit 2; and (ii) Tadau Energy is not entitled under its insurance to receive insurance proceeds which 77
  88. replace any Energy Payments not received by Tadau Energy for such period . If a Force Majeure Event affecting Tadau Energy occurs before the Unit 2 COD and delays the occurrence of the Unit 2 COD past the Scheduled First COD, Tadau Energy shall not in any way be entitled to make any claims from SESB during the continuance of such Force Majeure affecting Tadau Energy. If a Force Majeure Event affecting SESB occurs before the Unit 2 COD delays the occurrence of the Unit 2 COD past its Scheduled COD of Unit 2, SESB shall pay Tadau Energy the costs of servicing debt (drawn down and expended by Tadau Energy in accordance with the terms of the PPA 2 Financing Documents) after the date such Force Majeure Event occurred (but not including the Sponsors’ Gross Equity Contribution, the Sponsors’ Equity Repayment (being the aggregate of (i) the sum of all dividend, distribution, interest, profit, fee, premium, charges and other payments in respect of the PPA 2 Sponsors Gross Equity Contribution (as defined below), actually paid by or on behalf of Tadau Energy and (ii) the sum of all re-payment, pre-payment, redemption, re-purchase, return, and other payments in respect of the PPA 2 Sponsors Gross Equity Contribution, actually paid by or on behalf of Tadau Energy) or any cost relating thereto) to the extent Tadau Energy is not entitled under its insurances to receive insurance proceeds which reimburse it for such costs incurred, provided that the total liability of SESB in respect of any payment shall not in any event exceed Ringgit One Hundred and Twenty Eight Thousand One Hundred and Twenty (RM128,120.00) for each day during the continuance of the Force Majeure Event. If a Force Majeure Event affecting Tadau Energy occurs or continues after the Unit 2 COD, such Force Majeure Event does not relieve SESB of its obligation to make Energy Payments to Tadau Energy only to the extent that solar PV energy is delivered in accordance with the PPA 2 unless a Force Majeure Event affecting SESB occurs in which case the consequences described below will apply. If a Force Majeure Event affecting SESB occurs after the Unit 2 COD and for the duration such Force Majeure Event persists, SESB shall continue to pay Non-Acceptance Payments to Tadau Energy only to the extent that solar PV energy is delivered in accordance with the PPA 2. (xxvii) Right to Terminate under Force Majeure Either party may terminate the PPA 2 if a Force Majeure Event prevents either party from substantially performing any material obligation under the PPA 2 for a period which exceeds one hundred and eighty (180) days.

  96. (xxxi) Walk Away Events In the event of termination of the PPA 2 by SESB following the failure of Tadau Energy to achieve a Walk Away Event by the relevant Walk Away Date, neither party shall have any obligation or liability (save in respect of any antecedent breach) to the other whether at law, hereunder or otherwise and the rights of the parties hereunder shall terminate and be of no force or effect. (xxxii) Step-In Rights SESB SESB shall have the right, but under no circumstances the obligation to assume partial or complete (as SESB may decide) operational responsibility for the Unit 2 (in the capacity of an operator only) in the place and instead of Tadau Energy in order to continue operation of the Unit 2 or complete any necessary repairs so as to assure uninterrupted availability of solar PV energy from the Unit 2. Such step-in rights shall arise upon the occurrence and continuance of an event of default under the PPA 2 with respect to Tadau Energy which could reasonably be expected to materially adversely affect Tadau Energy’s ability to operate and maintain the Unit 2 in accordance with the PPA 2. SESB shall not exercise such step-in rights until any applicable cure period has expired, unless at any earlier time the Financing Parties request SESB to step-in under any right that has arisen under the PPA 2 Financing Documents. For so long as the PPA 2 Financing Documents remain in effect, SESB shall not exercise step-in rights hereunder if the operation of the Unit 2 has been assumed by any Financing Party or any approved assignee or designee within the applicable cure period. Tadau Energy shall ensure that the Financing Parties specifically acknowledge and are bound by such step-in rights of SESB. SESB shall have the right at any time, but not exceeding six (6) months from the time SESB exercises its step-in rights, to return the operational responsibility for the Unit 2 to Tadau Energy, provided that SESB shall return the Unit 2 to Tadau Energy in a condition no worse than that immediately prior to the assumption of the operational responsibility for the Unit 2 by SESB, ordinary wear and tear excepted.

In the event of a default under the Financing Documents, the O&M Contractor shall accept as substitute for Tadau Energy under the O&M Agreement 2, the agent, trustee or nominee of the Financing Party. 4.6 OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE In comparison to thermal power generation technologies, solar PV power plants have lower maintenance and servicing requirements. However, proper maintenance of the plant is essential to maximise both energy generation and the yield as well as the plant’s useful life. Tadau Energy will engage a team of experienced personnel who are registered with the relevant regulatory authorities and/or persons possessing the relevant professional qualification, as the case may be, comprising at least a facility manager, chargemen and operation and maintenance technicians to handle the operations and maintenance of the Solar PV Plants post-COD. The O&M Contractor will be providing operations and maintenance services for Unit 1 and Unit 2 for a period of two (2) years after the Commercial Operation Date of Unit 1 and Unit 2 respectively. During such period, the O&M Contractor is required to provide training to Tadau Energy’s personnel to ensure that Tadau Energy’s personnel are sufficiently trained to take over the operations and maintenance guided by the operations and maintenance manual prepared by the O&M Contractor. The key monitoring and maintenance work involved are checking integrity of the module connection and combiner box, inverter servicing, grounds-keeping (including landscaping, vegetation and pest control), security, module cleaning as preventive maintenance on one part and fault and spare part management with minimal reaction time as corrective maintenance on the other. The monitoring of the Solar PV Plants will be done off-site and the team will go on-site when required to perform the schedule maintenance or to diagnose/rectify issues pertaining to unscheduled breakdown. [The remainder of this page is intentionally left blank] 152
  163. Maintenance can be classified into the following :  Preventive maintenance - Planned in advance and aimed at fault prevention, as well as ensuring the Solar PV Plants are operating at its optimum level. Scheduled maintenance is generally carried out at intervals planned in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations, and as required by equipment warranties. Scheduled maintenance that requires plant shutdown would be conducted, where possible, during non-peak production periods, such as early morning or evening.  Corrective maintenance – Carried out in response to failures. A suitably stocked spare parts inventory is essential to facilitate a rapid response in the event of equipment failure. Post COD, the monitoring system of the Solar PV Plants will continuously monitor the PV plant performance to maximise availability and yield of the system. Closed circuit television systems shall be installed at all Project Lands to prevent theft and damaged caused by malicious acts. 4.7 PROJECT TAKAFUL/INSURANCE The EPC Contractor and Tadau Energy will procure and maintain the following takaful/insurance policies below over the construction and operational phases of the Project, with licensed insurers in Malaysia. The Independent Insurance Adviser will review the policies in place for the Project and confirm they are adequate and suited to Issuer’s needs. The insurance policies that are in place for the Project are:- 1. Erection All Risk (“EAR”) The EAR policy covers all risks (subject to agreed policy exclusion between the insured and the insurer) in relation to:Section 1 : Material Damage Material Damage of the Erection All Risk policy covers physical loss or damage from any cause, in a manner necessitating repair or replacement.

  171. conditional upon the full payment of the Lease Rental for the final maturing tranche of the SRI Sukuk Tadau , the Asset shall be granted/transferred without cost to the Lessee based on the contract of hibah (i.e. gift) at the end of the Lease Period, pursuant to which the Declaration of Trust shall be dissolved. On the maturity date of each tranche of the SRI Sukuk Tadau, the Sukukholders of the redeemed tranche shall transfer their undivided and proportionate ownership in the relevant Asset to the Sukukholders of the outstanding tranche of the SRI Sukuk Tadau by way of conditional hibah. The relevant Sukukholders in respect of such redeemed tranche of the SRI Sukuk Tadau shall then cease to have any interest, rights and entitlements in respect of any undivided ownership of the Asset to which the redeemed tranche of the SRI Sukuk Tadau relates to.

Upon declaration of a Dissolution Event, the Sukuk Trustee acting for the Sukukholders shall invoke the Purchase Undertaking upon which the Purchaser will purchase the proportionate undivided ownership in the relevant completed Asset from the Sukuk Trustee, at the Exercise Price via the relevant Sale Agreement. The proceeds therefrom shall be utilised for the redemption of such relevant SRI Sukuk Tadau held by the Sukukholders which shall then be cancelled. In relation to the Purchase Undertaking, the Exercise Price for the purchase of each completed Asset from the Sukuk Trustee acting for the Sukukholders upon declaration of a Dissolution Event shall be equal to the following: Exercise Price = the amount equivalent to the Istisna’ Price for the relevant Asset + Ownership Expenses in respect of the relevant Asset + all accrued and unpaid Lease Rentals in relation to the relevant Asset up to the date of the declaration of the Dissolution Event or Mandatory Redemption Event. 161
  172. The Exercise Price payable shall be set-off against the reimbursement of any Ownership Expenses payable to the Servicing Agent . Total Loss Event (i) Upon the occurrence of a Total Loss Event (as defined below) in respect of both Asset 1 and Asset 2, the Ijarah Agreements in respect of Asset 1 and Asset 2 will be terminated.

(ii) Upon the occurrence of a Total Loss Event in respect of Asset 1 only, the Ijarah Agreement in respect of Asset 1 will be terminated. The SRI Sukuk Tadau up to the amount of the Exercise Price in relation to Asset 1 will be redeemed in the inverse order of maturity using the proceeds of the takaful/insurance for Asset 1 pursuant to Service Agency Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, the Ijarah Agreement in respect of Asset 2 shall not be terminated, and the Advance Rentals and Lease Rentals payable thereunder shall continue to be payable. (iii) Upon the occurrence of a Total Loss Event in respect of Asset 2 only, the Ijarah Agreement in respect of Asset 2 will be terminated. The SRI Sukuk Tadau up to the amount of the Exercise Price in relation to Asset 2 will be redeemed using the proceeds of the takaful/insurance for Asset 2 pursuant to Service Agency Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, a Total Loss Event in respect of Asset 2 shall constitute a Dissolution Event. Pursuant to that, the Sukuk Trustee acting for the Sukukholders shall invoke the Purchase Undertaking upon which the Purchaser will purchase Asset 1 from the Sukuk Trustee, at the Exercise Price. The proceeds therefrom shall be utilised for the redemption of such relevant SRI Sukuk Tadau held by the Sukukholders which shall then be cancelled. "Total Loss Event" is the total loss or destruction of, or damage to the whole (and not part only) of a completed and delivered Asset under any ljarah Agreement or any event or occurrence that renders the whole (and not part only) of that Asset permanently unfit for any economic use and the repair or remedial work in respect thereof is wholly uneconomical.

The proceeds therefrom shall be utilised for the redemption of such relevant SRI Sukuk Tadau held by the Sukukholders which shall then be cancelled. In relation to the Purchase Undertaking, the Exercise Price for the purchase of each completed Asset from the Sukuk Trustee acting for the Sukukholders upon declaration of a Dissolution Event shall be equal to the following: Exercise Price = the amount equivalent to the Istisna’ Price for the relevant Asset + 215
  226. Ownership Expenses in respect of the relevant Asset + all accrued and unpaid Lease Rentals in relation to the relevant Asset up to the date of the declaration of the Dissolution Event or Mandatory Redemption Event. The Exercise Price payable shall be set-off against the reimbursement of any Ownership Expenses payable to the Servicing Agent. Total Loss Event (i) Upon the occurrence of a Total Loss Event (as defined below) in respect of both Asset 1 and Asset 2, the Ijarah Agreements in respect of Asset 1 and Asset 2 will be terminated. All outstanding SRI Sukuk Tadau will be redeemed using the proceeds of takaful/insurance for Asset 1 and Asset 2 pursuant to the Service Agency Agreement (as described below). (ii) Upon the occurrence of a Total Loss Event in respect of Asset 1 only, the Ijarah Agreement in respect of Asset 1 will be terminated. The SRI Sukuk Tadau up to the amount of the Exercise Price in relation to Asset 1 will be redeemed in the inverse order of maturity using the proceeds of the takaful/insurance for Asset 1 pursuant to Service Agency Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, the Ijarah Agreement in respect of Asset 2 shall not be terminated, and the Advance Rentals and Lease Rentals payable thereunder shall continue to be payable. (iii) Upon the occurrence of a Total Loss Event in respect of Asset 2 only, the Ijarah Agreement in respect of Asset 2 will be terminated. The SRI Sukuk Tadau up to the amount of the Exercise Price in relation to Asset 2 will be redeemed using the proceeds of the takaful/insurance for Asset 2 pursuant to Service Agency Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, a Total Loss Event in respect of Asset 2 shall constitute a Dissolution Event. Pursuant to that, the Sukuk Trustee acting for the Sukukholders shall invoke the Purchase Undertaking upon which the Purchaser will purchase Asset 1 from the Sukuk Trustee, at the Exercise Price. The proceeds therefrom shall be utilised for the redemption of such relevant SRI Sukuk Tadau held by the Sukukholders which shall then be cancelled. "Total Loss Event" is the total loss or destruction of, or damage to the whole (and not part only) of a completed and delivered Asset under any ljarah Agreement or any event or occurrence that renders the whole (and not part only) of that Asset permanently unfit for any economic use and the repair or remedial work in respect thereof is wholly uneconomical.

  230. SECTION 6 - INVESTMENT CONSIDERATIONS An investment in the SRI Sukuk Tadau involves certain risks . Prospective investors of the SRI Sukuk Tadau should consider carefully, in the light of their own financial circumstances and investment objectives, the following factors, in addition to the matters set forth elsewhere in this Information Memorandum, prior to investing in the SRI Sukuk Tadau. The Issuer believes that the factors described below represent the principal risks inherent in investing in the SRI Sukuk Tadau. However, neither the Issuer nor the Principal Adviser/Lead Arranger/Lead Manager represent that the statements below regarding the risks of investing in any of the SRI Sukuk Tadau are complete or exhaustive. Prospective investors are strongly encouraged to undertake their own investigations and analysis on the Issuer and its business and risks associated with the SRI Sukuk Programme. Prospective investors should read the detailed information set out elsewhere in this Information Memorandum and reach their own views prior to making any investment decision. 6.1 INVESTMENT CONSIDERATIONS RELATING TO THE SRI SUKUK TADAU 6.1.1 The credit rating of the SRI Sukuk Programme The SRI Sukuk Programme has been accorded a long-term rating of AA3 with a stable outlook by RAM, which indicates a high safety for payment of financial obligations. A credit rating addresses the likelihood of full and timely payment of profit and principal to the holders of the SRI Sukuk Tadau. A credit rating is not a recommendation to buy, hold or sell the SRI Sukuk Tadau and there can be no assurance that such a credit rating will not be revised on a periodic review basis by RAM during the tenure of the SRI Sukuk Programme or that such a credit rating will not be withdrawn entirely if circumstances in the future so warrant. Further, such a rating is not a guarantee of repayment or that there will be no default by the Issuer under the SRI Sukuk Tadau. In the event that the rating initially assigned to the SRI Sukuk Tadau is subsequently downgraded, suspended or withdrawn for any reason, no person or entity will be obliged to provide any additional credit enhancement with respect to the SRI Sukuk Tadau. Any downgrading, suspension or withdrawal of a rating may have an adverse effect on the liquidity and market price of the SRI Sukuk Tadau. Any downgrading, suspension or withdrawal of a rating will not in itself constitute a Dissolution Event under the SRI Sukuk Programme or an event obliging the Issuer to redeem the SRI Sukuk Tadau. 6.1.2 Profit rate risks Investment in the SRI Sukuk Tadau involves the risk of subsequent changes in the market conditions, profit rates, the Government of Malaysia’s policies and regulations concerning, inter alia, monetary and fiscal issues, which may adversely affect the value of the SRI Sukuk Tadau. The SRI Sukuk Tadau is a fixed income Islamic security and therefore its price may fluctuate due to movements in the relevant benchmark profit rates. Generally, a rise in the benchmark profit rates may cause a fall in the prices of fixed income securities. The SRI Sukuk Tadau may be similarly affected, resulting in a capital loss for the Sukukholders. Conversely, when the 220
  231. benchmark profit rates fall , prices of fixed income securities and the prices at which the SRI Sukuk Tadau are traded may rise. Sukukholders may enjoy a capital gain but the profit received may be reinvested at lower returns. 6.1.3 Liquidity of the SRI Sukuk Tadau The SRI Sukuk Tadau comprises a new issue of securities for which there is currently no established secondary market. There is no assurance that a secondary market for the SRI Sukuk Tadau will develop or, if it does develop, that it will provide the Sukukholders with liquidity of investment or that it will continue for the tenure of the SRI Sukuk Tadau. If a market develops, the market value of the SRI Sukuk Tadau may fluctuate, and a lack of liquidity, in particular can have a material adverse effect on the market value of the SRI Sukuk Tadau. An investor in the SRI Sukuk Tadau must be prepared to hold the SRI Sukuk Tadau until the earlier of the maturity or the occurrence of the Dissolution Event of the relevant Sukuk or mandatory redemption of the SRI Sukuk Tadau. 6.1.4 Market Risk If a market develops, the market value of the SRI Sukuk Tadau may fluctuate. Any sale of the SRI Sukuk Tadau by the Sukukholders in any secondary market which may develop may be at a discount from the original issue price of the SRI Sukuk Tadau, depending on many factors, including the prevailing interest rates and the market for similar securities. Other than the operating results and/or the financial conditions of the Issuer and/or the Sponsor, the price of the SRI Sukuk Tadau in the secondary market may be influenced by numerous factors, including but not limited to, the political, economic, and any other factors that can affect the capital markets, the Project, the industry, the Issuer and/or the Sponsor in general. Adverse economic and financial developments could have a material adverse effect on the market value of the SRI Sukuk Tadau. 6.1.5 Suitability of Investments The SRI Sukuk Tadau issued under the SRI Sukuk Programme may not be a suitable investment for all investors. Each potential investor in the SRI Sukuk Tadau must determine the suitability of the investment in light of its own circumstances. In particular, each potential investor should: (a) have sufficient knowledge and experience to make a meaningful evaluation of the SRI Sukuk Tadau, the merits and risks of investing in the SRI Sukuk Tadau and the information contained in this Information Memorandum; (b) have access to, and knowledge of, appropriate analytical tools to evaluate, in the context of its particular financial situation, an investment in the SRI Sukuk Tadau and the impact the SRI Sukuk Tadau will have on its overall investment portfolio; (c) have sufficient financial resources and liquidity to bear all of the risks of an investment in the SRI Sukuk Tadau; 221
  232. 6 .1.6 (d) understand thoroughly the terms of the SRI Sukuk Tadau and be familiar with the behaviour of any relevant indices and financial markets; and (e) be able to evaluate (either alone or with the help of a financial adviser) possible scenarios for economic and other factors that may affect its investment and its ability to bear the applicable risks. Shariah compliance Notwithstanding that the Shariah Adviser has provided a Shariah pronouncement on the structure and mechanism of the SRI Sukuk Tadau, case law in Malaysia indicates that the courts in Malaysia may still examine the issue of whether the SRI Sukuk Tadau are in compliance with Shariah. Investors who are permitted to hold only Shariah-compliant sukuk will not be able to hold the SRI Sukuk Tadau in the event the SRI Sukuk Tadau are held to be non-Shariah compliant, and will be required to sell the SRI Sukuk Tadau held by them, which may expose them to losses. 6.1.7 Enforcement and realisation Following the enforcement of the security upon the declaration of a Dissolution Event (as defined in the PTC), the Sukuk Trustee (on behalf of the Sukukholders) will have recourse to the security provided to secure the SRI Sukuk Tadau. The realisation value of the security or any part thereof may be adversely affected by numerous factors, including without limitation, general changes in political and economic conditions, changes in governmental rules and regulations, war or acts of violence and other factors which are beyond the control of the Issuer, the Security Trustee and any person or party involved or interested in the SRI Sukuk Tadau. No assurance can be given that the Security Trustee will be in a position to realise the security provided to secure the SRI Sukuk Tadau for an amount that is sufficient to repay all amounts outstanding in relation to the SRI Sukuk Tadau. 6.2 INVESTMENT CONSIDERATIONS RELATING TO THE ISSUER 6.2.1 The Issuer’s Ability to Meet its Obligations under the SRI Sukuk Tadau The ability of the Issuer to meet its obligations to the Sukukholders in terms of payment of amounts due in respect of the SRI Sukuk Tadau will mainly depend on the Issuer’s income and the strength of the Issuer’s operation to generate sufficient Energy Payments and positive cashflows. Any potential delay in the completion of any of the Solar PV Plants which exceeds any potential delay initially projected or the occurrence of output shortages post-COD or any unscheduled prolonged outages or the delay in receipt of payment from SESB may affect the Issuer’s ability to pay the amounts due under the SRI Sukuk Tadau. SESB, the sole counterparty making the Energy Payment, is 83% owned by Tenaga Nasional Berhad and 17% owned by the Sabah State Government. There is no assurance that SESB will be able to meet its obligations under the PPAs in a timely manner. To mitigate this risk, funds will be maintained in the FSA upon issuance of the SRI Sukuk Tadau of an amount equivalent to the FSA Required Profit Balance intended to service the Periodic Profit Payments payable up to the next immediate Periodic 222
  233. Distribution Date post Scheduled COD of Unit 2 (as defined in sub-item (xvii) of item (Other terms and conditions) of the PTC). Commencing on the Periodic Distribution Date post Scheduled COD of Unit 2 , to ensure that there are funds for profit and principal payments, the FSA must have 100% of the profit and principal sum six (6) months before the respective due dates. In addition, all revenue post completion of the Solar PV Plants will be captured in the RA (jointly controlled by the Issuer and the Facility Agent) to be utilised in the manner set out in Section 5 of this Information Memorandum. This risk is further mitigated by the restriction imposed for the payment of dividends on ordinary shares / profit on the redeemable preference shares (if any) /interest on advances made by the Issuer’s directors/ shareholders/ related companies (if any) and repayment of advances by the Issuer’s directors/ shareholders/ related companies and/or redemption of the Issuer’s redeemable preference shares. In this regard, any such payment is subject to, amongst others, compliance to the Distribution FSCR (as calculated in the manner set out in item (Financial Covenants) of the PTC. In addition, the Issuer shall ensure that at least forty percent (40%) of the principal under the SRI Sukuk Tadau has been redeemed prior to proposing any repayment of such advances or redemption of redeemable preference shares. The payments under the SRI Sukuk Tadau will be the Issuer’s obligations and will not be the obligations or responsibilities of the Principal Adviser, the Lead Arranger, the Lead Manager, the Facility Agent, or their respective subsidiaries or affiliates, the advisers of the Issuer, the Sukuk Trustee and any other person involved or interested in the transactions envisaged under the SRI Sukuk Tadau. None of such persons will accept any liability whatsoever to the Sukukholders in respect of any failure of the Issuer to pay any amount due in respect of the SRI Sukuk Tadau. 6.2.2 Foreign Exchange Risk The Issuer faces foreign exchange risk as 80% of the Contract Price (“RMB Contract Price”) is denominated in Renminbi. To mitigate the foreign exchange risk, the Issuer had procured the EPC Contractor to enter into a hedging arrangement with Bank of China (Malaysia) Berhad to fix the RMB Contract Price to RM176,277,498.85 which shall be the final and conclusive amount in RM pursuant to the EPC Contracts. 6.3 INVESTMENT CONSIDERATIONS RELATING TO THE PROJECT 6.3.1 Completion Delay The timely completion of the Solar PV Plants is dependent upon, amongst others, the performance of the EPC Contractor in completing the same in accordance with the agreed dates in order for Tadau Energy to meet the respective COD for each of the Solar PV Plants. If Tadau Energy fails to achieve COD on or before the Scheduled COD of Unit 1 (i.e. 30 June 2017) due to default of Tadau Energy or its contractors or agents under the PPA 1, Tadau Energy shall be liable to pay SESB a compensation amount equal to RM1,000.00 per day for each day of delay, commencing from the Scheduled COD of Unit 1 until the earlier of (i) the COD of Unit 1; (ii) the date on which the PPA 1 is terminated by SESB; or (iii) 180 days after the Scheduled COD of Unit 1. 223
  234. Total compensation payable by Tadau Energy shall not exceed RM180 ,000.00. The failure to achieve the COD of Unit 1 within 180 days from the Scheduled COD of Unit 1 shall be constitute an event of default under the PPA 1. The PPA 2 specifies the Scheduled COD of Unit 2 is 31 March 2018. If Tadau Energy fails to achieve COD of Unit 2 on or before the Scheduled COD of Unit 2 due to default of Tadau Energy or its contractors or agents under the PPA 2, Tadau Energy shall pay SESB a compensation amount equal to RM24,000.00 per day for each day of delay, commencing from the Scheduled COD of Unit 2 until the earlier of (i) the COD of Unit 2; (ii) the date on which the PPA 2 is terminated by SESB; or (iii) 180 days after the Scheduled COD of Unit 2. The failure to achieve the COD of Unit 2 beyond 180 days from the Scheduled COD of Unit 2 shall be constitute an event of default under the PPA 2. However, the aforementioned risk is mitigated, amongst others, by the following:  Experience of the EPC Contractor and guarantee from parent company The EPC Contractor is a wholly-owned subsidiary of CPI Power Engineering Co. Ltd. (“CPIPEC”) which in turn is wholly-owned by State Power Investment Corporation (“SPIC”). SPIC, a state-owned investment company, is an integrated energy group with total installed capacity of 107.4 gigawatt for 2016, comprising thermal, hydro, nuclear, solar and wind power, Clean energy accounted for 40.06% of the total installed capacity. In respect of solar power generation, SPIC is involved in almost the entire industry chain which includes research and development, planning and design, manufacturing of polysilicon, cells and modules, project construction and training. Although the EPC Contractor has no operating history in Malaysia and was established pursuant to securing the EPC Contracts, the construction works and all technical aspects of the Project will be carried out by the technical and support teams from CPIPEC. CPIPEC is an experienced EPC Contractor who had completed installation of solar PV plants with an aggregate installed capacity of about 940 MW since 2009 and another seven (7) solar PV plants with an aggregate installed capacity of 631 MW under construction, all of which are located in China and expected to be commissioned by 2017. In addition, pursuant to the EPC Contracts, CPIPEC has provided a Parent Company Guarantee in which it has guaranteed the performance of all of the EPC Contractor’s obligations and/or liabilities under the EPC Contracts. However, there is no assurance that the EPC Contractor would be able to familiarise itself with the local construction requirements/standards to ensure timely completion of the Solar PV Plant.  Current progress of the work done at the Solar PV Plants The Independent Technical Adviser, based on its report, has opined that:  In respect of the Unit 2, there could be a medium risk of a three (3) months delay to the Guaranteed Completion Dates and while there is a low risk of a delay of one (1) month or greater to the Scheduled COD of Unit 2; and 224
  235.  In respect of Unit 1, likelihood of delay to COD of a month or less is high, potentially arising from the works in relation to the interconnection facilities as well as the review and approval by SESB for Unit 1 and the related interconnection facilities. Nevertheless, the Scheduled COD of Unit 1 of 30 June 2017 is achievable with concerted efforts and expedient approvals from SESB in respect thereto. As at 6 June 2017, Unit 1 is 91% completed, and the Initial Operation Date (as defined in PPA 1) is expected to be 19 June 2017, in accordance with the PPA 1. The works outstanding for achieving commercial operation of Unit 1 is mainly in relation to the calibration process to be undertaken by Tenaga National Berhad (“TNB”) and the commissioning of Unit 1. Nevertheless, Tadau Energy reserves the right to claim any Delay LDs (as defined below) from the EPC Contractor, to be determined by Tadau Energy after the completion of Unit 2.  Delay Liquidated Damages Liquidated damages are payable by the EPC Contractor (“Delay LDs”) for each day of delay of works beyond the respective Guaranteed Completion Dates that is not a result of a Force Majeure Event (as referred in the EPC Contracts) or extension of time under circumstances as specified in Section 4.5.2 of this Information Memorandum. In this regard, the EPC Contractor shall pay the following: EPC 1 - RM6,000 for each day of delay of the works; and EPC 2 - RM144,000 for each day of delay of the works. The Delay LDs are capped at 15% of the Contract Price for the respective EPC Contracts. The Independent Technical Adviser, based on its report, has opined that the Delay LDs is able cover the cost of delay under the PPAs.  Guaranteed Completion under the EPC Contracts The risk of delay in completion is mitigated as the Guaranteed Completion Date of Unit 1 is about 32 days before the Scheduled COD of Unit 1 while the Guaranteed Completion Date of Unit 2 is about 144 days before the Scheduled COD of Unit 2. This will provide some buffer to handle unforeseen issues/circumstances that may arise during the construction, testing and commissioning of the Solar PV Plants.  Project Monitoring and Management The construction progress, testing and commissioning as well as verification of such results will be subject to strict monitoring of the Sponsor, Tadau Energy and Fichtner GmbH & Co KG, the owners’ engineer. The Independent Technical Adviser will review the construction progress report on a quarterly basis and will highlight any issues. As such, potential delays and issues can be identified at an early stage and the actual delay is expected to be managed by Tadau Energy. Close liaison and engagement with SESB on a monthly basis and on-demand basis at the design and implementation stage will mitigate interconnection risk and meeting the requirements of SESB. 225
  236. 6 .3.2 Construction Cost Overruns The Issuer has entered into fixed price EPC Contracts with the EPC Contractor in respect of Unit 1 and Unit 2 respectively. The Contract Price is all inclusive, nonescalating fixed price to cover all works, services and/or activities necessary for the execution and completion of the Solar PV Plants. However, the EPC Contracts allow an increase in the Contract Price in certain limited circumstances such as arising from Change-in-Law (as detailed in Section 6.3.17 of this Information Memorandum), variation order issued by Tadau Energy and suspension of works instructed by Tadau Energy, which may lead to cost overruns. Construction cost overruns would be funded out from the budgeted contingency sum forming part of the Project Costs. The Sponsor has included about approximately 12% of the Contract Price as project contingency to cover any potential cost overruns encountered during the construction stage, any excess of which shall be covered by the Sponsor pursuant to the Sponsor Completion Support. The Independent Technical Adviser, based on its report, has opined that the contingency provided is sufficient for the purposes of the Project. 6.3.3 The Sponsor Completion Support The Sponsor Completion Support is provided by the Sponsor as its commitment to ensure the successful completion of the Solar PV Plants through injection of equity in accordance with the Financial Model or Revised Financial Model, as the case may be, and to fund any cost overruns incurred relating to the Project. The funding for cost overruns will be required when the additional Project Cost incurred is in excess of the contingency sums estimated and deposited in the Disbursement Account (as defined in item (Details of designated account(s), if applicable) of the PTC) upon issuance of the SRI Sukuk Tadau. Any adverse effect to the business, operations and/or financial position of the Sponsor may directly have an adverse effect on the Sponsor’s ability to fulfil its obligations under the Sponsor Completion Support. The Sponsor’s main source of income is derived from investments in oil palm plantations, properties and equity investments. The Sponsor has received a letter of award from Suruhanjaya Tenaga in December 2016 to build, own and operate a new diesel independent power plant in Lahad Datu, Sabah with a total capacity of 30MW and is in the midst of negotiating the principal terms with the authorities. As such, there is no assurance that the Sponsor is able to fulfil its obligations under the Sponsor Completion Support. The Sponsor seeks to mitigate these risks through, inter-alia, the incorporation of corporate governance principles at the operating company, maintaining personnel equipped with industry knowledge, implementation of prudent financial policy and careful planning with the involvement of its consultant, Fichtner GmbH & Co KG and close monitoring of project/plants Kagayaki Energy is involved in. 226
  237. 6 .3.4 EPC Contractor Performance and Termination There is no assurance that the Solar PV Plants will be completed within the agreed costs and scheduled timeframe, and no assurance that the Solar PV Plants would deliver the expected performance. If the Unit 1 Contracted Capacity or the Unit 2 Contracted Capacity is not achieved in the performance test conducted prior to the CODs, the contracted capacity of the relevant Solar PV Plants shall be revised downwards to reflect the actual capacity, reducing future revenue, whereupon the EPC Contractor shall be liable to pay the PR Warranty Liquidated Damages for failure to meet the minimum acceptance criteria of the performance ratio. There is no assurance that the full amount of the EPC 1 Delay Liquidated Damages or the EPC 2 Delay Liquidated Damages (as described in Sections 4.5.2.1 and 4.5.2.2 of this Information Memorandum respectively) and/or the EPC 1 PR Warranty Liquidated Damages or the EPC 2 PR Warranty Damages (as described in Sections 4.5.2.1 and 4.5.2.2 of this Information Memorandum respectively) claimed by Tadau Energy that is in excess of the amount covered by the performance bond shall be paid by the EPC Contractor. If Tadau Energy chooses to terminate the EPC Contracts, Tadau Energy will not be entitled to any consequential loss including any loss, compensation or profit or damages as a result from the termination of the EPC Contracts. The EPC Contractor is liable to pay Tadau Energy, amongst others, all costs incurred by Tadau Energy to complete the works covered under the EPC Contracts. 6.3.5 Technology and Module Degradation Risk The Solar PV Plants are subject to the risk that the parts and key components (especially PV modules, inverters and transformers) do not function as expected, or performance degrades more rapidly than expected. Hence, this may lead to lower electricity output and revenue achieved by Tadau Energy. This risk is also partly mitigated by the long operating history of crystalline silicon technology and the power output warranty provided by the PV module manufacturer, JA Solar Sdn Bhd, for 25 years based on the nominal peak power with maximum initial degradation of 3% after the first year and a linear degradation of 0.65% per year during the following 24 years with a minimum output power of 81.4% after year 25. Although the Base Case Cashflow Projections have taken into account such warranty, there is no assurance that the manufacturer will be able to honour the warranty obligations. Nonetheless, finding suitable replacement PV module manufacturers may not be as challenging given the abundance of PV module producers and the low barriers to switching to another supplier if necessary coupled with the rapid technological advancement in the field. In addition, the inverters manufacturer, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd has provided a five (5) year warranty for the inverters used for the Project. There will also be a build up in the Maintenance Reserve Account of RM4.1 million to fund the maintenance of the Solar PV Plants, as described in Section 6.3.8 of this Information Memorandum. All of the Plant’s equipment will operated and maintained by experienced contractors. The O&M Contractor will be trained both in theory and practice by the relevant supplier’s personnel and are to follow all their guidelines. 227
  238. 6 .3.6 Meteorological Risks The energy produced by the Solar PV Plants are dependent on the actual weather conditions and solar irradiation affecting the Solar PV Plants which is beyond the control of Tadau Energy. According to the PPAs, SESB shall not pay Issuer for electricity generated using energy storage devices, hybrid generating devices with other fuel sources or concentrated solar thermal technology. The actual annual solar irradiation rates may often deviate from the long-term average irradiation rates used for projecting energy production in cashflow projections. In addition, industrial atmospheric pollution or haze may reduce the irradiation received or contain potentially corrosive substances that require additional cleaning of or which may cause damage to the PV modules. Further, parts of the Project Land that are of sloping terrain are subject to the risk of soil movement or erosion whilst those low-lying parts may be subject to the risk of possible flooding especially during the monsoon season that may damage the equipment/cables. As such, the revenue of Tadau Energy may be adversely affected upon occurrence of such events. The risk is mitigated by proper soil investigation being carried out and that the design of the Solar PV Plant takes into consideration the weather conditions. In addition, the parent company of the EPC Contractor, CPIPEC, has the track record of successfully executing solar plants located on hills and undulating/uneven terrain. 6.3.7 Output Shortfall Risk and the Operations and Maintenance Risk The operations and maintenance of the Solar PV Plants will be handled by the O&M Contractor, who will, starting from eighteen (18) months from the commencement of the O&M 1 Term (as defined in Section 4.5.4.1 of this Information Memorandum) of the O&M 2 term (as defined in Section 4.5.4.2) of the Information Memorandum) include personnel designated by Tadau Energy into the performance of the relevant operations and maintenance. As such, post-COD, the operation and maintenance of the Solar PV Plants will be handled by Tadau Energy’s in-house operations and maintenance team and thus, the financial performance of the Solar PV Plants depends to a large extent on their effective management of the operations and performance of the Solar PV Plants. This risk is mitigated as the O&M Contractor, who has experience with the operation and maintenance of solar PV plants, will initially handle the operations and maintenance of the Solar PV Plants, and will train the personnel from Tadau Energy for the purposes of transitioning such operations and maintenance services to Tadau Energy’s personnel. In addition, the term of the O&M 1 Term and the O&M 2 Term, may be extended in accordance with the provisions of the respective O&M Agreements. Any unexpected and extended breakdowns of the Solar PV Plants may lead to the energy generated at risk of being less than seventy percent (70%) of the DAQ during the relevant contract year. Consequently, Tadau Energy has to pay SESB the NonDelivery Payment for such shortfall in Net Electrical Output delivered in that contract year, except in an Emergency Condition under the PPAs or an interruption due to a Force Majeure Event under the PPAs affecting Tadau Energy or any default or omission on the part of SESB. Further, if the actual capacity of (i) Unit 1 is lower than the Unit 1 Contracted Capacity based on the performance tests conducted (i) on every fifth (5th), tenth (10th), and fifteenth (15th) anniversary of the Unit 1 COD and/or (ii) Unit 2 is lower 228
  239. than the Unit 2 Contracted Capacity based on the performance tests conducted no later than sixty (60) days before the the fifth (5th), tenth (10th), fifteenth (15th) and twentieth (20th) anniversary of the Unit 2 COD, the Contracted Capacity of the respective Solar PV Plants shall be revised to reflect the actual certified capacity. This may have material adverse effect on the future revenue and cashflow of the Issuer. To mitigate the output shortfall risk, the EPC Contractor has provided warranties that during the first two (2) years of the Warranty Period (as detailed in Section 4.5 of this Information Memorandum), the Solar PV Plants shall meet the guaranteed performance ratio under the EPC Contracts. Failure to meet the performance ratio for any of the Solar PV Plants for any year under warranty will result in the EPC Contractor being liable to pay Tadau Energy liquidated damages in the manner as set out in Section 4.5.2 of this Information Memorandum and subject to a maximum of ten percent (10%) of the relevant Contract Price. In addition, the retention sum under the EPC Contracts shall be released to the EPC Contractor after the final acceptance certificate has been issued and that final acceptance test of the relevant Solar PV Plants has been achieved in accordance with the terms in the EPC Contracts. In addition, the operations and maintenance of Solar PV Plants are considered to be of lower complexity as compared to the conventional thermal power plants and that maintenance work may be undertaken during non-peak production periods, such as early morning or evening. Further, preventive maintenance activities will be undertaken to include all the activities that can be planned in advance. All the faults acknowledged through the monitoring systems or during the plant periodical inspections, will be promptly checked on site, according to the reaction times set out in the operation and maintenance manuals provided or to be provided by the EPC Contractor to Tadau Energy. Statistical analysis of the faults will be performed to check recurring events and to reduce the response time in attending to the faults. A suitably stocked spare parts inventory will facilitate a rapid response in the event of equipment failure. Tadau Energy will also procure machinery breakdown takaful/insurance after the COD of Unit 1 and Unit 2, which would mitigate, to a certain extent, the operating and maintenance risk. The Issuer shall determine the optimum spare parts to be kept in stock for Unit 1 and Unit 2 which will depend on the size of the plant and the potential for sharing critical equipment across the Project Lands to reduce plant downtime and minimising cost. Given that the Solar PV Plants are located at three (3) different sites and connected to the grid system/distribution network at two different connection points, this allows for diversification of risk of having to rely on a centrally located site particularly upon occurrence of major breakdown or catastrophic events such as fires, explosions, floods and tropical storm. Further, due to the modular structure of the Solar PV Plants, where each inverter creates a separate module that independently produces a small share of the Solar PV Plants output; the failure of a particular module does not affect the output of others, thus lowering the operating risk. 6.3.8 Risk of Increase in Operations and Maintenance Cost The Energy Payments received from SESB are fixed as per the PPAs. However, the operation and maintenance cost of the Solar PV Plants may increase in response to changes in market conditions or changes in technology or as a result of unscheduled repairs or the replacement of parts. The cashflows of Tadau Energy may be 229
  240. negatively affected if the operations and maintenance cost is higher than initially budgeted . This risk is mitigated for the first two years after COD of each of Unit 1 and Unit 2 as the operations and maintenance of the Solar PV Plants will be carried out by the O&M Contractor for an agreed sum in accordance with the O&M Agreements.In addition, the monthly transfer of funds from the RA to the OA based on the Annual Operating Budget, which in any case, shall not exceed ten percent (10%) per annum of the amounts set out in the Financial Model or Revised Financial Model, as the case may be. In addition, Tadau Energy will be establishing a Maintenance Reserve Account in the sum of not less than RM4.1 million to fund the maintenance expenses of the Solar PV Plants. The maintenance reserve shall be used exclusively to meet the maintenance obligations of Tadau Energy, including any repair or replacement of parts in connection with the Project, whether covered by takaful/insurance or otherwise. 6.3.9 Availability of the Grid System / Distribution Network and Acceptance of Net Electrical Output The Energy Payments to be made by SESB will be based on the Net Electrical Output delivered by Tadau Energy and accepted by SESB, which shall not exceed the MAAQ of such contract year. Hence, any interruption in the grid connection or irregularities in overall power supply of the local grid system /distribution network may adversely affect the revenue of Tadau Energy. In addition, SESB is not obliged to accept Net Electrical Output from Tadau Energy in the following circumstances: (a) the occurrence of an emergency conditions as described in the PPAs within the grid system or distribution network as a result of which the grid system or distribution network is unable to accept Net Electrical Output from the Solar PV Facilities is subject a maximum of 185 hours per contract year and advance notice is to be provided to the extent practicable together with full explanation of such occurrence promptly after it occurs; (b) interruptions by SESB to conduct necessary maintenance is subject to the maximum of 48 hours per contract year for maintenance to be carried out from 9.00 a.m. to 3.00 p.m. and maximum of 137 hours per contract year for maintenance to be carried out from 3.01 p.m. to 8.59 p.m. with 72 hours prior notice is required for such planned maintenance; and (c) any constraint or interruption in the grid system or distribution network as a result of which the grid system or distribution network is unable to accept Net Electrical Output from the Solar PV Plants is subject to a maximum 185 hours in each contract year and advance notice is to be provided to the extent practicable together with full explanation of such occurrence promptly after it occurs. SESB will also not be obliged to accept Net Electrical Output from Tadau Energy (i) which does not conform to the electrical characteristics described in the PPAs, (ii) where the Solar PV Plants have delivered Net Electrical Output exceeding the MAAQ 230
  241. for the relevant time period or (iii) the Net Electrical Output delivered by the Solar PV Facilities exceeds the relevant Contracted Capacity. However, excluding the specific events set out in the foregoing paragraphs, if SESB fails to accept the Net Electrical Output generated and delivered by Tadau Energy in the manner set out in the PPAs, SESB shall pay Tadau Energy the Non-Acceptance Payment for such period SESB fails to accept the Net Electrical Output. 6.3.10 Total Loss Under the Transaction Documents, upon the occurrence of a Total Loss Event, the Issuer shall notify the Sukuk Trustee of such occurrence. In such event, if a Total Loss Event occurs in respect of Asset 2 or both Asset 1 and Asset 2, the Issuer shall redeem the nominal value of all outstanding SRI Sukuk Tadau. If the Total Loss Event occurs in respect of Asset 1, the Issuer shall redeem the nominal value of the SRI Sukuk Tadau up to the amount of the Exercise Price (as defined in item (Facility Description) of the PTC) in respect of Asset 1. If the proceeds of the takaful/insurance for the relevant Asset are insufficient to cover such amounts, Tadau Energy shall make good the difference. The ability of Tadau Energy to make good the difference, for not taking full Takaful/insurance coverage in connection with the Asset, is in turn subject to Tadau Energy’s ability to meet its obligations under the SRI Sukuk Tadau, as set out in Section 6.2.1 of this Information Memorandum. However, a written report will be obtained from the takaful/insurance adviser prior to the issuance of the SRI Sukuk Tadau that the Takaful/insurance cover obtained by or for the benefit of Tadau Energy in relation to the Project is adequate and in compliance with Tadau Energy’s obligations to insure under the EPC Contracts and the PPAs. 6.3.11 Regulatory Risks 6.3.11.1 Generation Licence Under the Electricity Supply Act, a person who intends to operate a power plant is required to hold an electricity generation licence. When issuing the Generation Licences, the Suruhanjaya Tenaga may also impose such conditions as may appear to be requisite or expedient in accordance with the provisions of the Electricity Supply Act. There is no certainty as to the nature of such conditions that may be imposed. Pursuant to the Electricity Supply Act, in the event of a breach of any of such conditions imposed, the Generation Licences may be suspended or revoked by the Suruhanjaya Tenaga. Under the PPA 1, Tadau Energy is required, prior to the Initial Operation Date (as defined in the PPA 1), to submit to SESB a certified copy of the Generation Licence in respect of Unit 1, and under the PPA 2, Tadau Energy is required to submit to SESB a certified copy of the Generation Licence in respect of Unit 2 no later than six (6) months prior to the Commercial Operation Date (as defined in PPA 2). Unless and until such Generation Licences are obtained, Tadau Energy would not be able to commence the generation of solar PV energy. A delay in obtaining the relevant Generation Licence could result in the failure to meet Initial Operation Date and consequentially the Scheduled COD under the PPA 1, and/or the Scheduled COD 231
  242. under the PPA 2 . In such event, it would reduce the revenue and cashflow of Tadau Energy post-COD. Under each PPA, SESB is entitled to terminate the PPA in accordance with its terms in the event the relevant Generation Licence is suspended, revoked, terminated or expired due to Tadau Energy’s default and Tadau Energy has not caused the same to be reinstated or renewed within the stipulated remedy period. Tadau Energy has obtained the Generation Licence in relation to Unit 1 on 7 June 2017. 6.3.11.2 Regulatory Risks Tadau Energy will require various approvals, licences, permits and certificates to operate its business and the Solar PV Plants. Tadau Energy will be required to renew these approvals, licences, permits and certificates or to obtain new approvals, licences, permits and certificates. There will not be any assurance that in the future the relevant authorities will issue or renew any required approvals, licences, permits or certificates in a timely manner or at all or if renewed, additional conditions may be imposed by the relevant authorities. Under the PPAs, SESB is entitled to terminate any of the PPAs in accordance with its terms in the event the relevant Generation Licence is suspended or revoked or terminated due to a default by Tadau Energy and Tadau Energy has not caused the same to be reinstated or renewed within the stipulated remedy period. In addition, failure to renew, maintain or obtain the required approvals, licences, permits and certificates may interrupt the Project’s operations which may have a material adverse effect on Tadau Energy’s business, financial condition and results of operations. 6.3.12 Risk of Termination of the PPAs The PPAs may be terminated by SESB as a result of an event of default by Tadau Energy under circumstances set out in Section 4.5.1 of this Information Memorandum. SESB has the option, but not the obligation to purchase Unit 1 and/or Unit 2 in accordance with the terms of the respective PPAs. In the event that SESB exercises the option to purchase Unit 1 and/or Unit 2 and the respective Sponsors Gross Equity Contribution amounts to less than 20% of the respective Total Project Costs, SESB is obliged to pay, amongst others, ninety five percent (95%) of the PPA 1 Outstanding Indebtedness or the PPA 2 Outstanding Indebtedness, as the case may be. Nevertheless, this risk is mitigated as the FE Ratio is to be maintained upon issuance of the SRI Sukuk Tadau and to be maintained during the tenure of the SRI Sukuk Programme. As such, should SESB exercise the option to purchase Unit 1 and/or Unit 2, then SESB is obliged to pay Tadau Energy’s Outstanding Indebtedness. In the event SESB does not exercise the option to purchase Unit 1 or Unit 2, as the case may be, and no payment is forthcoming from SESB, the Sukukholders may not be able to realise their security. This is mitigated by the fact that for so long as the Solar PV Plants are catering to the energy requirements of the state, it is less likely that SESB will not exercise its option to purchase. 232
  243. The PPAs may also be terminated by Tadau Energy as a result of an event of default by SESB under circumstances set out in Section 4 .5.1 of this Information Memorandum. In the event Tadau Energy exercises the option to sell the affected Solar PV Plant(s) to SESB, SESB shall purchase the affected Solar PV Plants(s) provided that all rights, tittle and interest in the affected site(s) (including the access rights) are capable of being transferred to SESB free of encumbrances. The purchase price payable by SESB shall include all Outstanding Indebtedness at the termination date. Nevertheless, there is no assurance that SESB will be able to pay the purchase price as a result of termination due to an event of default by Tadau Energy or SESB. The Suruhanjaya Tenaga may also exercise its statutory right to step in and operate any of the Solar PV Plants. However, there is no reason for Suruhanjaya Tenaga to choose to exercise its step in rights if Tadau Energy observes the terms and performs its obligations of the PPAs. While the termination risks are not unusual for power purchase agreements executed in Malaysia, Tadau Energy will implement effective management and operational policies and procedures to ensure compliance with its obligations under the PPAs. However, there can be no assurance that such measures would be effective. In any case, a default on the PPA 1 will not automatically cause the default of PPA 2 unless the underlying reason of the default is also applicable to the PPA 2 and vice versa. 6.3.13 Adequacy of takaful/insurance In order to mitigate certain risks in relation to the Project, the EPC Contractor shall maintain takaful contracts/insurance policies during the construction of the Solar PV Plants, which set out Tadau Energy as an insured party, and Tadau Energy and the O&M Contractor shall maintain takaful contracts/insurance policies post completion of the Solar PV Plants, in accordance with the requirements of the Project Documents. However, there is no assurance that there will be sufficient coverage to fully protect against interruption to business, generation of revenue, accidents or any other liabilities associated with the business of Tadau Energy. However, in respect of takaful contracts/insurance policies to be maintained during the construction of the Solar PV Plants, a written report will be obtained from the takaful/insurance adviser prior to issuance of the SRI Sukuk Tadau that the Takaful/insurance cover obtained by or for the benefit of Tadau Energy in relation to the Project is adequate and in compliance with Tadau Energy’s insurance obligations under the EPC Contracts and the PPAs. 6.3.14 Adjustment of Inaccurate Meters In the event the metering equipment fails to register, or if the measurement made by the metering equipment is found upon testing to be inaccurate by more than +/-1%, the PPAs provide for adjustments of the measurements of the inaccurate or defective metering device for billing purposes. Any downward adjustments to the measurements will result in lower energy payments to be paid to Tadau Energy and will have an adverse effect on the revenue of Tadau Energy which in turn will have an adverse effect on the ability of Tadau 233
  244. Energy to meet its obligation to pay the amounts due in respect of the SRI Sukuk Tadau . This risk is mitigated by Unit 1 and Unit 2 each having two (2) tariff energy meters: one which serves as the main tariff energy meter, and the other for checking purposes. Both tariff energy meters have the same specification and performance, with the same amount of the energy registered for comparison purposes. Further, the accuracy of the tariff energy meters is higher than Accuracy Class 0.2s, which is in accordance to the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standard. SESB also conducts an annual calibration of all independent power producers’ energy tariff meters. Therefore, there is a low likelihood of inaccuracies in the measurements made by the metering equipment. 6.3.15 Adjustment of Energy Rate The PPAs provide for downward adjustments in Energy Rates in the event of the following: (a) there are savings in construction costs and financing costs of the Project from the amounts reflected in the initial financial model set out in the PPAs; and (b) if there are incentive or benefit in respect of taxes (including but not limited to any relief, reduction or abatement in the payment of any such taxes) and /or any tax allowance, exemption or waiver (including but not limited to any investment tax allowance) from any government entity at any time from the date of the PPAs up to 1 year from COD. Although the reduction in Energy Rate may have an adverse effect on revenue of Tadau Energy, such adjustments to the Energy Rate would be adjusted downwards to reflect fifty percent (50%) of the construction costs reductions and sixty percent (60%) of the financing costs reductions. This risk is mitigated by virtue of the responsibility of Tadau Energy to promptly submit the Revised Financial Model with a projected base case FSCR of at least 1.25 times and a FE Ratio of not exceeding 80:20 that has been revised and endorsed by the Suruhanjaya Tenaga/ SESB. Consequently, the transfer of funds to the OA shall not exceed amounts set out in the Revised Financial Model. Furthermore, an amount equivalent to fifty percent (50%) of the reduction in construction cost (i.e. the difference between the construction costs reflected in the PPAs and the updated financial model submitted to and accepted by SESB one (1) year post COD of Unit 2) shall be transferred from the Disbursement Account to the Cost Savings Reserve Account, subject to the availability of funds in the Disbursement Account. The balances in the Cost Savings Reserve Account may be transferred to the Finance Service Account to maintain the FSA Minimum Required Balance in the event there are insufficient funds in the Revenue Account. 6.3.16 Risk of Liquidated Damages Amount Being Challenged Whilst the liquidated damages are supported by on-demand performance bonds issued by the EPC Contractor with the liquidated damages level acting as the ceiling to the compensation available, it is possible that the EPC Contractor may challenge the quantum of the liquidated damages payable. There is no assurance that Tadau Energy will be able to recover reasonable compensation to cover the losses in the event that the amount of compensation is challenged by the EPC Contractors. 234
  245. 6 .3.17 Change-in-Law To the extent that a change in law (including the change in distribution code or grid code, as the case may be) which compels Tadau Energy to make capital improvements or any other material modification to the Solar PV Plants, the cost of which is in excess of RM250,000.00 for Unit 1 and RM1,000,000.00 for Unit 2 in any calendar year is required for the purpose of enabling Tadau Energy to fulfil its obligations under the PPAs (“Change-in-Law”), SESB and Tadau Energy shall renegotiate the relevant Energy Rate (as defined in the PPAs) or, in the case of the PPA 1, an extension of the PPA 1 Term (as defined in Section 4.5.1.1 of this Information Memorandum) for submission to Suruhanjaya Tenaga for approval. If the parties cannot reach an agreement, the dispute resolution process under the PPAs shall apply. Nevertheless, the inability of Tadau Energy to perform its obligations during the period required by Tadau Energy to effect the changes or modification to the Solar PV Plants necessitated by any Change-in-Law shall not be a breach of the PPAs to the extent such inability is a direct consequence of the Change-in-Law. 6.3.18 Project Lands Tadau Energy has the first right of refusal to purchase any of the Project Lands during the term of the lease should the land owner(s) decide to sell such Project Land(s) and has received a bona fide offer for such purchase. However, pursuant to the terms of the SRI Sukuk Programme, Tadau Energy may not incur, assume, guarantee or permit to exist any indebtedness other than the SRI Sukuk Tadau, hire purchase facilities in relation to the Project and BG Facilities. Approval from the Sukukholders will be required prior to Tadau Energy securing such financing to acquire any of the Project Lands. Although the Issuer will use its best endeavours to secure the necessary financing for the purchase of the said land, there is no assurance that Tadau Energy will be able to secure such financing on terms favourable to Tadau Energy or that such financing will be approved by the Sukukholders. The Lease Agreement (Site Yong East), Lease Agreement (Site Yong West 1), Lease Agreement (Site Yong West 2) and Lease Agreement (Site Bak Bak) may be terminated in the event the corresponding PPA is terminated or has expired before the end of the term of the relevant Lease Agreement. In the event that SESB exercises its right to purchase the 2 MWac Project of the 4MWac Project, as the case may be, from Tadau Energy pursuant to the relevant PPA, there is currently no arrangement in place for the relevant Project Lands to be automatically leased to SESB. The Project Lands may also be subject to a compulsory land acquisition by the Government of Malaysia. If a compulsory land acquisition is made in respect of any or all of the Project Lands, this will result in an adverse impact on the Project and accordingly, the ability of the Issuer to meet its obligation to make payments under the SRI Sukuk Tadau. 6.3.19 Land Use The Project Lands are required to be rezoned for light industrial use for the purposes of the Project. 235
  246. In respect of Site Yong East , a public notice for the proposed rezoning to Site Yong East was issued in a local newspaper by the Kudat Town Board and no objection has been received in respect of the proposed rezoning, which is currently pending a recommendation from the Kudat Town Board and subsequently final approval from the Central Town and Country Planning Board (“Central Board”) of Jabatan Perancang Bandar dan Wilayah Negeri Sabah (“JPBW”). Tadau Energy expects to receive the final approval on 22 June 2017, the next scheduled meeting of the Central Board. Tadau Energy is currently liaising with the Department of Town and Country Planning of JPBW for the proposed rezoning of Site Yong West and Site Bak Bak. There is a risk that an objection may be made against the proposed rezoning in respect of Site Yong West and Site Bak Bak, as well as a risk that the Central Board will not provide its final approval in respect of the rezoning of the Project Lands, in which case, the Project Lands may not be rezoned. Any contravention by Tadau Energy of the applicable laws and regulations in respect of the aforementioned rezoning shall carry a penalty of a fine or imprisonment. However, an objection may only be made by a person or public body affected by the proposed rezoning, and who would be required to send a statement of objection to the Kudat Town Board setting out the nature and reason for such objection. It is unlikely that there will be cause for objection for the proposed rezoning of Site Yong West and Site Bak Bak, especially in view of the fact that there was no objection in respect of the rezoning of Site Yong East. In addition, the proposed rezoning is for electricity supply for Sabah, and as such, it is also highly unlikely that the Central Board will not grant the final approval for the rezoning of any of the Project Lands. 6.3.20 Force Majeure Force majeure provisions are found in, the PPAs and the EPC Contracts and the other Project Documents (“the Agreements”). A force majeure event is an event, condition, or circumstance, or its effect which: (a) is beyond the reasonable control of and occurs without fault or negligence on the part of the party claiming it; and (b) causes a delay or disruption in the performance of obligation under the affected Agreements despite all reasonable efforts of the party claiming it to prevent it or mitigate its effects. There is a risk that Tadau Energy may be adversely affected by a force majeure event either directly or indirectly if the other project counterparties to the affected Agreements are relieved of their contractual obligations thereunder. Under the terms of the PPAs, Tadau Energy is able to extend the Scheduled Commercial Operation Date of the relevant Solar PV Plant by one (1) day for each day the relevant Commercial Operation Date is delayed by a force majeure event and Tadau Energy shall not be entitled under its insurance to receive insurance proceeds which replace any Energy Payments not received by Tadau Energy for such period. 236
  247. 6 .4 GENERAL INVESTMENT CONSIDERATIONS 6.4.1 Political, Economic and Regulatory Risk The performance and financial condition of the Issuer and the Sponsor may be affected by economic, political and regulatory conditions in Malaysia and other countries in the region, such as the changes in policies and regulatory requirements affecting solar power plants, risk of war, risk of terrorist attacks, expropriation and renegotiations or nullification of existing contracts. Investors should note that whilst the Issuer and the Sponsor strive to continue to take effective measures such as prudent financial management and efficient operating procedures, there is no assurance that adverse political, economic or regulatory conditions will not materially affect the Issuer and the Sponsor. 6.4.2 Inherent regulatory risk Regulatory risk is an inherent feature for independent power producers such as Tadau Energy. Events such as the imposition of an annual windfall profit levy on independent power producers in Peninsular Malaysia and Sabah in 2008, which had subsequently been abolished, remains vulnerable to regulatory risk. 6.4.3 Change in Law The structure of the transaction and the issue of the SRI Sukuk Tadau are based on Malaysian law, tax and administrative practices in effect as at the date hereof and having due regard to the expected tax treatment of all relevant statutes under such law and practices. No assurance can be given that the Malaysian laws, tax or administrative practices will not change after the date of issue of the SRI Sukuk Tadau or that such change will not adversely impact the structure of the transaction and the treatment of the SRI Sukuk Tadau. 6.4.4 Forward looking statements Certain statements, information, estimates and reports in this Information Memorandum are based on historical data, which may not be reflective of the future results, and others are forward-looking in nature, which are subject to uncertainties and contingencies. All forward-looking statements are based on estimates and assumptions made by the Issuer and the Sponsor and although each of the Board of Directors of the Issuer and the Sponsor believes that these forward-looking statements are reasonable, the statements are nevertheless subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from the future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements. In light of these and other uncertainties, the inclusion of forward-looking statements in this Information Memorandum should not be regarded as a representation or warranty by the Issuer, the Sponsor or its advisers or arrangers, and there can be no assurance that the plans and objectives will be achieved. A deterioration in the financial condition of the Issuer and/or the Sponsor could adversely affect the market value of the SRI Sukuk Tadau and the ability of the Issuer or the Sponsor to make payments under Transaction Documents (as defined in item (xxiii) (Transaction Documents) under item (Other Terms and Conditions) of the PTC) relating to the SRI Sukuk Tadau to which it is a party when due, if at all. 237
  248. SECTION 7 - INDUSTRY OVERVIEW The information below is included for information purposes only and has not been independently verified by the Issuer , PA, LA or LM. All data and information below have been obtained from publicly available official sources of Malaysia. Neither the Issuer, any one of the PA, LA or LM nor any other party will be held responsible for any information contained herein. 7.1 OUTLOOK AND ECONOMY OF MALAYSIA The Malaysian economy in 2016 In 2016, the Malaysian economy recorded a growth of 4.2% (2015: 5.0%) despite considerable external and domestic headwinds. The global economic landscape was challenging given the subdued global demand and low commodity prices. International financial markets were also subjected to heightened uncertainty with significant reversal of capital flows from emerging economies. This was driven by the unexpected political developments in the advanced economies, such as the UK and the US, and the macroeconomic policies adopted by these economies. Domestically, the economy continued to face headwinds from the higher cost of living amid soft employment conditions. Concurrently, business and consumer sentiments were affected by a confluence of global and domestic factors, including the heightened volatility in financial markets and the significant underperformance of the ringgit. Against these external and domestic challenges, all sectors of the economy recorded a modest expansion during the year. Domestic demand continued to anchor growth, supported mainly by private sector spending. Private consumption growth, in particular, was sustained at 6.1% (2015: 6.0%), supported by continued employment and wage growth following the increase in minimum wage and civil servant salaries. Government measures to boost disposable income such as the temporary reduction in employees’ contribution to the Employees Provident Fund (EPF), higher Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia (BR1M) payouts and tax relief to lower-income tax payers also supported household spending. Public consumption growth moderated to 1.0% (2015: 4.4%) following the expenditure rationalisation adopted by the Government in early 2016 given the lower petroleum related revenue because of low crude oil prices. Gross fixed capital formation (GFCF) expanded moderately by 2.7% in 2016 (2015: 3.7%) driven mainly by lower private investment growth due to weak profitability and business sentiments. Public investment recorded a smaller rate of decline in 2016 (-0.5%; 2015: -1.0%) due to the smaller contraction in spending on fixed assets by public corporations given the higher investment in the downstream oil and gas industry, and the transportation and utilities sub-sectors. On the supply side, all economic sectors continued to expand in 2016, with the exception of the agriculture sector. Agriculture production declined by 5.1% (2015: 1.2%), as crude palm oil (CPO) output was affected by the El Niño weather phenomenon. While growth in the services sector was higher at 5.6% (2015: 5.1%) following sustained demand in the consumer-related sectors, other sectors expanded more moderately. Headline inflation, as measured by the annual percentage change in the Consumer Price Index (CPI), was unchanged at 2.1% in 2016 (2015: 2.1%), which is at the lower end of the Bank’s forecast range of 2% - 3%. Inflation during the year was driven mainly by adjustments to administered prices undertaken since the fourth quarter of 20156 and higher prices of fresh food items due to the El Niño weather phenomenon. The administered price items are toll charges (October 2015), cigarette prices (November 2015), railway fares (December 2015), reduction in electricity rebates (January 2016) and cooking oil (November 238
  249. 2016 ). The inflationary pressures were, however, offset by the lapse in the impact of GST and lower domestic fuel prices. Moderate domestic demand conditions and a subdued external price environment also helped to contain domestic inflationary pressures. Correspondingly, core inflation was broadly stable during the year, averaging 2.1% in 2016 (2015: 2.3%). Outlook for the Malaysian Economy in 2017 Global economic activity is projected to improve in 2017, underpinned by an expansion in domestic demand in the advanced and emerging market economies, boosted in part by expansionary fiscal policies in selected major economies. These pro-growth policies would spur global demand and provide impetus to global trade. The outlook would also be supported by a recovery in commodity prices amid the move to reduce oversupply conditions. Nonetheless, the global economy will continue to be subjected to several downside risks. These include a potential retreat from globalisation and free trade in the advanced economies, and uncertainty over the UK and EU negotiations and geopolitical developments. With the gradual improvement in global growth, recovery in global commodity prices and the continued growth of domestic demand are expected to collectively support Malaysia’s growth performance. The Malaysian economy is projected to register a sustained growth of 4.3% 4.8% in 2017. Domestic demand will continue to be the principal driver of growth, underpinned by private sector activity. Notwithstanding the higher inflation, private consumption growth is expected to be sustained by continued wage growth and the increase in disposable income due to selected Government measures and higher global commodity prices. In an environment of cautious business sentiment and continued uncertainty in the economy, investment growth is projected to remain modest. Nonetheless, private investment activity will be supported by higher capital expenditure in export-oriented industries and implementation of ongoing and new projects, particularly in the manufacturing and services sectors. While public expenditure would be lower as a result of the Government’s continued commitment to fiscal consolidation, the public sector is projected to support growth, driven mainly by higher public investment arising from the ongoing implementation of key infrastructure projects in selected sectors. On the supply side, all economic sectors are projected to register positive growth in 2017. The services and manufacturing sectors would be the key contributors to overall growth. The agriculture sector is expected to rebound as yields recover from the El Niño weather phenomenon. Growth in the mining sector is expected to remain steady, as a stronger expansion in natural gas output offsets a moderation in the crude oil sub-sector. (Source: Bank Negara Malaysia Annual Report 2016) 7.2 OVERVIEW OF THE UTILITIES SECTOR The utilities subsector recorded a stronger growth of 6.1% during the first six months of 2016 (January – June 2015: 3.8%). This was mainly due to higher usage of electricity during the El Niño weather phenomenon. Value-added of electricity and gas segment increased 5.8% (January – June 2015: 3.2%). During the first seven months of 2016, electricity consumption grew significantly by 9.5% to 80,430.2 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) (January – July 2015: 2.3%; 73,459.5 million kWh) with industrial, commercial and mining segment increased 8.7%, accounting for 77% of 239
  250. total usage (January – July 2015: 1.9%; 77.6%). Similarly, electricity consumption by domestic and public lighting sectors recorded a double-digit growth of 12.3%, amounting to 23% of total consumption (January – July 2015: 3.7%; 22.4%). Meanwhile, gas consumption increased 3.6% to 80.2 million MMBtu mainly driven by higher demand from the industrial segment (January – June 2015: 8.2%; 77.5 million MMBtu). (Source: Economic Report 2016/2017, Ministry of Finance Malaysia) 7.3 OVERVIEW AND OUTLOOK OF THE RENEWABLE ENERGY INDUSTRY Renewable energy account for a rising share of the world’s total electricity supply, and they are the fastest growing source of electricity generation according to the International Energy Outlook 2016. Total generation from renewable resources increases by 2.9%/year, as the renewable share of world electricity generation grows from 22% in 2012 to 29% in 2040. Generation from non-hydropower renewables is the predominant source of the increase, rising by an average of 5.7%/year and outpacing increases in natural gas (2.7%/year), nuclear (2.4%/year), and coal (0.8%/year). Solar is the world’s fastest-growing form of renewable energy, with net solar generation increasing by an average of 8.3%/year. Of the 5.9 trillion kWh of new renewable generation added over the projection period, hydroelectric and wind each account for 1.9 trillion kWh (33%), solar energy for 859 billion kWh (15%), and other renewables (mostly biomass and waste) for 856 billion kWh (14%). (Source: International Energy Outlook 2016, United States Energy Information Administration under the United States Department of Energy.) Malaysia is blessed with many indigenous renewable energy sources. The renewable energy sources identified are: (a) (b) (c) (d) (e) (f) Palm oil biomass wastes and palm oil mill effluents; Mini-hydro; Solar power; Solid waste and land-fill gas; Wind energy* and geothermal*; Wastes and gases from agro-based* and farming industries*. * Note: The detail resources potentials are yet to be fully examined and verified. Since 2001 Malaysia has made efforts towards renewable energy development where the principle adopted was using the market forces to deliver the intended outcomes towards electricity generation. The National Renewable Energy Policy and Action Plan sets out the projected targets for renewable energy development in Malaysia, as follows: Electricity Capacity Mix: By 2020, total capacity from renewable energy is targeted to reach 2,065 MW or 11% of total peak electricity demand capacity by 2020; 240
  251. Electricity (Energy) Mix: By 2020, total electricity mix from renewable energy is targeted to reach 11.2 TWh/year or 9% of total electricity generated. Electricity Capacity Mix: By 2030, total capacity from renewable energy is targeted to reach 3,484 MW or 14% of total peak electricity demand capacity by 2030; Electricity (Energy) Mix: By 2030, total electricity mix from renewable energy is targeted to reach 16.5 TWh/year or 11% of total electricity generated. The targets are projected until year 2050 when renewable energy would constitute 11.5GW or 36% of total peak electricity demand capacity and 29.3 TWh/year or 15% of total electricity generated In respect of solar energy, Malaysia implemented the Net Energy Metering (“NEM”) programme commencing 1st November 2016 until 2020 with 100MW capacity limit a year in Peninsular Malaysia and Sabah. The NEM is a solar photovoltaic programme announced by the Prime Minister under the 2016 budget. This is to complement the current Feed-in Tariff (“FiT”) mechanism and encourage the deployment of renewable energy as meted out in Malaysia Eleventh Plan. NEM is executed by the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology & Water, regulated by the Suruhanjaya Tenaga, with Sustainable Energy Development Authority Malaysia as the implementing agency.
