Penang Green Innovation Incentive is an annual scheme designed to encourage innovation in environmental sustainability solutions by providing cash grants and assistance for outstanding entries (innovative product, technology or process). For it to be considered, your innovative entry must be original, novel as well as commercially viable and applicable with a view to tackle environmental degradation or reduce carbon footprint in Penang.

The incentive program is open to all Malaysian citizens. Applicants can be individuals (amateur or business), groups, or organizations (non-profit, SMEs, students, etc.). All applications must be made using the official application form available on the Penang Green Council’s website, www.pgc.com.my/pgii.

The benefits of the incentive includes guidance on patent application and mentoring on entrepreneurship and product readiness; seed money of up to RM 50,000 and patent financing of up to RM 50,000 (total disbursement up to RM 200,000 each year). We received a total of 32 entries in 2013.
