Malaysian energy sector: Regulation, prospects and challenges

    Abstract

    Malaysia's energy needs have been dominated by fossil fuels because of the existing supply of resources such as petroleum, natural gas and coal. The introduction of fuel diversification policies have never taken off due to implementation constraints and market trends. The country will face a challenging task as it depends strongly on fossil fuels, and it is estimated that the country's existing stock is expected to be depleted significantly by 2012. The alternative fuels, in the form of bio-fuel and fuel cells, sound promising but incentives to promote such fuels remain low and uninspiring. Consequently, the move towards alternative and greener energy sources may take a longer time to implement.
