Head of Energy Research Cluster


Extension: 565


Welcome to the Centre for Research of Innovation & Sustainable Development (CRISD) Energy Cluster website. The CRISD Energy Cluster will pursue excellence in developing energy technology solutions and sustainable development research. Fuels like coal and oil that once were a fine innovation in creating energy are now rapidly depleting, and these non-renewable resources have resulted in the increase of fossil fuel prices. Therefore, there is a need for alternative energy sources which are long lasting to satisfy the desire of mankind for better quality of life. Such energy sources like solar energy, wind energy, geothermal energy, and hydropower are the key to our future. There is a great incentive to exploit renewable energy to face the challenges inherent in the changing environment and remain prepared for future trends. Moreover, there is huge potential for demand-side management and energy conservation which should be exploited for the benefit of the country and the environment.


Our environment is blessed with high solar radiation as it is strategically located near the equator which are still being studied and evaluated for future exploitation. Hence, the centre takes a leading role in encompassing all aspects of renewable energy projects from inception to maturity. The centre will coordinate the efforts of researchers and academics working in different areas of energy production and utilization in order to create strong cooperation with industry. To be a leading research centre for providing and promoting novel and sustainable energy solutions. CRISD Energy Cluster contributes to sustainable development at regional and national levels through social equity, economic efficiency and technology. Increase public awareness about the best use of energy, energy conservation and the feasibility of renewable energy usage especially in rural areas.
