The Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy or simply known as SCORE, is one of the five regional development corridors being developed throughout the country. SCORE is a major initiative undertaken to develop the Central Region and transform Sarawak into a developed State by year 2020. It aims to achieve the goals of accelerating the State's economic growth and development, as well as improving the quality of life for the people of Sarawak.

The core of the corridor is the energy resources, particularly hydropower (28,000 MW), coal (1.46 billion tones), and natural gas (40.9 trillion square cubic feet) found abundantly within the Central Region. This will allow Sarawak to price its energy competitively and encourage investments in power generation and energy-intensive industries that will act as triggers for the development of a vibrant industrial development in the corridor.

Tanjung Manis, Mukah, Samalaju, Baram and Tunoh have been selected as the five New Growth Nodes, with the aim of focusing investment efforts within the corridor. The selection of these New Growth Nodes is a key element of the corridor's strategic development plan. The Mukah Node will be developed into a Smart City, and will serve as the nerve centre for the corridor. The Tanjung Manis Node will be developed into an Industrial Port City and Halal Hub. The Samalaju Node will become the new Heavy Industry Centre, whereas Baram and Tunoh will focus on tourism and resource based industries. The synergy between these five New Growth Nodes will drive the development and growth of the Central Region and Sarawak as a whole. The corridor Secondary Growth Centres, such as Semop, Balingian, Selangau, Samarakan, Bakun and Nanga Merit also stand to benefit greatly from spatial development of the entire region, and the development of these New Growth Nodes.

PLANS AND STRATEGIES

SCORE will adopt a 5-prong development strategy:

  • Drive priority industries investments towards 3 major growth nodes along the Corridor – Tanjung Manis (south), Mukah (centre) and Samalaju (north).
  • Build a well-designed network of industrial class transport and communication infrastructure within the Corridor, extended outwards to systematically open up the hinterland.
  • Fast-forward the development of energy supply centering around currently known feasible hydro power (Murum, Limbang, Baram and Baleh) and coal deposit sites.
  • Accelerate human capital development within the Corridor with new learning centres and controlled immigration of skilled foreign workers.
  • Develop the tourism industry, focusing on the natural attractions of the Central Region, particularly the lakes upstream of the hydro power stations and the beaches along the northern part of the Corridor.

Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) is managed and promoted by the Regional Corridor Development Authority (RECODA). RECODA is organised and managed with a clear commercial mindset focused on providing world-class customer service by minimising public service bureaucracy and operating as a one-stop agency for investors.
