Hashim brings over 15 years of experience in the energy industry. He worked for many years with Malaysia's national utility provider, TNB, where he was involved in high-voltage power generation, transmission, distribution of electricity, and retail for the overall Malaysian market.

Prior to joining PSC Consulting, he served as the principal consultant for the German technology company Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen in the Asia Pacific region.

Hashim also spent over a decade in the academia, including as an associate professor at the Universiti Tenaga Nasional in Malaysia.

“I am excited to join the team at PSC Consulting, which is ready, willing, and able to help electricity providers with the intricate transition to more sustainable energy sources. As Asia strives to reduce its carbon intensity in power generation, meet ESG standards, and create carbon credits, I look forward to helping them in this transition.”

“The social and political drivers to net zero in Asia differ significantly from those in Europe and the States. Governments and utilities in the region need a comfort level to advance swiftly. With support from the PSC Consulting team, companies can gain the assurance and confidence to rapidly meet their energy transition targets,” Hashim continued.

Welcoming Hashim to the firm, Ashley Grohn, Managing Director of PSC Consulting’s Asia Pacific division, said: “Amir’s deep experience of the energy arena in both Asia and Europe puts him in the perfect position to help advise our growing our customer base on the vital need to transition to greener energy sources while keeping the lights on.”
