He will be talking about how TNB is building capacity in renewable markets as part of an Energy Transition strategy, while developing new unregulated profit strategies and customer engagement innovations.

Amir Hamzah joined Tenaga Nasional Berhad in April 2019. Prior to this, he served at the Shell Group of Companies for 10 years in various capacities in Malaysia, Singapore and the United Kingdom.

This is the first year that POWERGEN & Asian Utility Week have been collocated. The shows have been enlarged to include new business critical themes. We anticipate an audience of 11,000 people making this the largest power and energy expo in ASEAN markets.
