“Smart Solutions” are seen as the cornerstone that will allow emerging economies like Malaysia make the leap from emerging economies to developed economies. Malaysia for example looks to attain developed nation status by 2020. In order to achieve this ambitious target there is need to develop solutions, collaborations and investor friendly environment. The Malaysian government is proactive and ready to invest in smart initiatives that will push the region forward. The Asian region has been growing at between 5-6 % since 2010 and to support this annual growth, improvements in communication, energy, health, education, digital media and transport infrastructure are essential at this moment. Climate change, rising energy prices and technology advances are all forces that have been reshaping the collective mindset of consumers, turning many from “passive ratepayers” to highly informed, environmentally conscious customers who want a role in using power. And now, with the emergence of the technologies (smart grids), companies can provide their customers with the information and control they need to actually change their behavior patterns and reduce usage and costs.
