1.0 Introduction
Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) is the largest electricity utility in Malaysia with almost RM73 billion in assets. The Company is listed on the main board of Bursa Malaysia and employees more than 31,000 people Group-wide to serve an estimated 8.08 million customers in Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Labuan. Set up as the Central Electricity Board of the Federation of Malaya in 1949, TNB has powered national development efforts for more than 60 years by providing reliable and efficient electricity services. TNB's core businesses are in the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity. In Peninsular Malaysia, the Company is a major contributor to the total industry capacity through six thermal stations and three major hydroelectric schemes. It also manages and operates the National Grid which links TNB power stations and IPPs to the distribution network in the peninsula. The grid is connected to Thailand's transmission system in the north and Singapore's transmission system in the south. In East Malaysia, TNB, through 80%-owned subsidiary Sabah Electricity Sdn. Bhd. (SESB), manages the Sabah Grid and aims to provide electricity to 95% of the state's population by year 2013. TNB's distribution network is managed through a comprehensive distribution system, customer service centres and call management centers. Over the years, TNB has diversified from its core business into the manufacture of transformers, high voltage switchgears and cables; the provision of professional consultancy services; and architectural, civil, electrical engineering works and services, repair and maintenance. The Company also engages in research and development, property development and management services. Tapping into opportunities available overseas, TNB is making inroads into emerging markets in the region as well as in the Middle East. In 2005, the Company embarked on a 20-Year Strategic Plan which entails greater focus on green initiatives such as the development of renewable sources of fuel, and more effective demand side management via energy efficiency. These efforts complement the Government's carbon reduction agenda while also creating a foundation for sustainable energy for the future. TNB believes in providing service excellence and aims to attain global leadership. Towards this end, the Company invests significantly in the continuous professional development of its employees through structured programmes. As a leading GLC, TNtB also places strong emphasis on its social and environmental responsibilities. Yayasan Tenaga Nasional (YTN), established in 1993, funds much of the Company's CSR programmes. TNB also has a tradition of promoting sports and developing sporting talent in the country. The Company's own hockey team is renowned for regularly winning the Malaysian Hockey League Championship.
