Abstract

The rapid industrial growth and dramatic population are the major trends in Malaysia. These trends lead to a serious issue about the extensive use of fossil fuels. The demand for energy is predicted to continuously rise because of the extensive fossil fuels exploitation. If this trend of energy consumption is continuously uncontrolled, the fossil fuels are running ahead of supply and come to the limit. The renewable energy can provide clean sources of energy which is reliable and secure to society. This study analyzed renewable energy adoption, focusing on the readiness of offshore wind turbine technology adoption in Labuan Island, Sabah. Labuan Island, Sabah has been selected as a potential location to install the offshore wind turbine technology because of geographical advantage of the South China Sea. This case study is expected to provide great power energy with least environmental impact and high sustainability. This is because Labuan Island, Sabah is located within the windy area with no terrain features, buildings or other obstruction. This case study is also considered as an exploratory study with the method of qualitative methodology. The method is used for both data collection and data analysis. The technique used for primary data collection is through in-depth interview technique with semi-structured interview. With the concrete evidence provided, the outcome of this case study is proved at the end of this study through the constructed model of readiness of offshore wind turbine technology adoption in Labuan Island, Sabah. As a conclusion, the availability of national renewable energy policy, incentives and funding provided, the geographical advantage of the South China Sea, the climate advantage and great commitment from Tenaga National Berhad and The Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water, the offshore wind turbine technology in Labuan Island, Sabah has great potential to be adopted as a new renewable-based electricity generation in Malaysia.
