IN September 2021, at the unveiling of the 12th Malaysia Plan, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced Malaysia’s commitment to become carbon neutral as early as 2050. To substantially decarbonise the Malaysian economy, the power sector has a crucial role to play.
In Malaysia, natural gas and coal contribute to more than 80% of the power generation mix.
The government targets renewable energy (RE) to constitute 31% of installed power generation capacity in 2025 and 40% in 2035.
