PERTH ( – Energy major TotalEnergies this week signed a strategic collaboration deal with Petronas’ clean energy solutions company Gentari Renewables to develop renewable energy projects in the Asia Pacific region.

Signed on the sidelines of the Energy Asia Conference in Kuala Lumpur, the agreement will see TotalEnergies and Gentari jointly develop the 100 MW Pleasant Hills solar project in Queensland, to supply low-carbon electricity to the Roma field’s gas production and processing facilities.

TotalEnergies and Gentari’s parent company, Petronas, each hold a 27.5% stake in Gladstone liquefied natural gas (LNG).

“We are pleased to join forces with our long-standing partner Petronas, through Gentari, to deploy renewable energies in Asia-Pacific and decarbonise our own facilities leveraging on our respective strengths: through this strategic collaboration agreement, we are paving the way for very concrete action plans ranging from implementing best practices to eliminate methane emissions, to energy efficiency and electrification with low carbon power,” said TotalEnergies’ Asia Pacific exploration & production and renewables president Julien Pouget.

“The 100 MW Pleasant Hills solar project, which will contribute to lowering the emissions of Gladstone LNG, is a first material implementation of this agreement.”

Gentari CEO Sushil Purohit said that to achieve the joint decarbonisation goals, it was critical to harness all capabilities, capacity and resources efficiently.

“This includes optimising our existing partnerships and working to decarbonize our own business entities. Gentari’s latest partnership with TotalEnergies, therefore, will provide a new momentum in our net-zero efforts, and to build the right ecosystem for growth in clean energy and net-zero solutions.”
