The role of sustainable energy development, especially Renewable Energy (RE) in the energy transition agenda, contributes to a competent and credible local energy industry, said Energy and Natural Resources Minister Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan.

He said the contribution of RE in supporting the country’s climate change aspirations was also evident when the rate of electricity generation capacity from RE sources increased from 5% in 2001 to 24% in 2021.

Malaysia’s renewable energy installed capacity is targeted to reach 40 per cent, or 18,000 megawatts, by 2035, Energy Minister Takiyuddin Hassan said on Wednesday (Oct 27), as the South-east Asian nation charts a lower-carbon pathway for its power sector.

Current installed capacity for renewable energy in Malaysia is 8,520 megawatts, or 23 per cent of the energy mix, he said in a speech at the Singapore International Energy Week event.

The nation aims to raise its renewable energy capacity to 31 per cent of total capacity by 2025, he added.
