OVER 20 YEARS OF IPP EXPERIENCE AND CHARTING A COURSE TOWARD A GREENER FUTURE

LEADER ENERGY PTE. LTD. is a Singaporean Company wholly owned by HNG Capital Sdn. Bhd. of Malaysia.  As the power division of HNG Capital, LEADER ENERGY owns and operates a diverse portfolio of power and transmission assets in Southeast Asia.  HNG Capital’s other interests include metals, hospitality and commercial real estate.

LEADER ENERGY’s journey as an independent power producer began twenty-five years ago when its parent HNG Capital concluded the first-ever IPP concession agreement with the Cambodian State utility Electricité Du Cambodge (“EDC”) to Build-Own-Operate-transfer a 37MW diesel fired power plant in the Cambodia’s capital city, Phnom Penh.

Owing to the initial bold step of becoming Cambodia’s first IPP, LEADER ENERGY leveraged its “first mover” advantage to secure additional concessions in Cambodia including a 120MW coal-fired power plant, a 230kV double circuit, 110km long high voltage transmission line, and a 150MW coal fired power plant.

With its position in Cambodia firmly established, LEADER ENERGY has sought to diversify its fuel mix and geography across Southeast Asia by acquiring a portfolio of hydropower plants in Vietnam totaling 51.5MW (gross) and winning concessions for two solar power projects in Malaysia totaling 67.1MWp. The recent foray into Vietnam’s solar power market with the 330MWp Phu My 1-3 solar power project further propels its Power generation portfolio (gross capacity) towards the 1,000MW mark. LEADER ENERGY also expanded into the new market swiftly in Taiwan, undertaking various solar projects including the floating solar, ground solar and rooftop solar that are expanding steadily and rapidly across Taiwan.

The acquisition of LYS Energy also further expanded its footprint in the rooftop solar into the Southeast Asia nations including Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand as well as Taiwan. The zero-cost and zero-maintenance model is offered to benefit Commercial & Industrial partners who share the same value for environmental sustainability.

Leader Energy will continue to expand its renewable energy assets in the ASEAN region for a greener and sustainable future.
