SEDA appoints Sanjayan Velautham as new CEO

Published on 9 January 2019

KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 9): Sustainable Energy Development Authority (SEDA) Malaysia has appointed Dr Sanjayan Velautham as its new chief executive officer.
Sanjayan, who started off his career at Tenaga Nasional Bhd, brings with him over 25 years of experience dedicated to the energy industry as well as academia.
Prior to this, Sanjayan served as the executive director of the Jakarta-based Asean Centre for Energy since January 2015. He reported directly to the governing council consisting leaders of the senior offices on energy from Asean member states.
He has also served as the national project manager for the United Nations Development Programme's BioGen Project.
"SEDA is confident that Sanjayan will be able to spearhead energy efficiency and renewable energy (RE) agenda in the country, and achieve the aspirational RE target of 20% in the national power mix by 2025," SEDA said in a statement.
"His vast background and extensive knowledge of the energy industry are valuable attributes which are of great relevance to Seda," it added.
SEDA is a statutory body under the Ministry of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change in charge of driving the RE and energy efficiency agenda in the country.
