Energy sector in Malaysia

How sustainable are we?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Though energy has become essential for the socio-economic activities, the energy sector is also the highest contributor to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The objective of this chapter is to review and assess the sustainability of the energy sector in Malaysia. Energy statistics from using the national energy balance and reports are analysed. Energy production and consumption are evaluated from the perspectives of socio-economics and how this sector contributes to the GHG emission. This chapter starts from accessibility of modern energy services throughout the nation, followed by assessing the energy subsidies that contribute to the affordability. Energy efficiency is evaluated for both supply and final consumption of the energy sector, whereas, the contribution of renewable energy in electricity supply is evaluated through the power generation mix. This chapter is then concluded with summary, highlights and recommendations from the aspects of subsidy, public awareness, technology and governance.
