SINGAPORE -- Malaysia's state-owned energy giant Petronas has launched a multi-front effort to cut greenhouse gases by expanding its renewable energy business and embracing carbon capture and storage.

Solar panels cover the rooftops of buildings within the Universiti Teknologi Petronas campus, a research university located on the Malaysian island of Pelak. The installations are managed by Gentari, Petronas's green energy subsidiary launched in June.
