Center for Renewable Energy & Appropriate Technology

About The Center:

CREATE Borneo is a village-based workshop and training facility, educating the next generation of indigenous engineers in renewable energy technologies. Our programs¬†allow indigenous communities to develop and harness their resources on their own terms while incentivizing environmental stewardship. The Center is supported through National Geographic’s “Great Energy Challenge” and is located in the village of Nampasan in Sabah, Malaysia.

Our aim at CREATE is to improve rural energy access in Malaysia while leveraging existing indigenous conservation laws to inspire better, more sustainable resource management. Our projects not only include comprehensive conservation plans but also foster independent and autonomous management plans for the system and its tangible economic benefits.
