Executive Summary

The energy industry is changing fast and in multiple directions, with important consequences for energy-rich countries. Malaysia is also experiencing unprecedented political changes with the election of the Pakatan Harapan (PH) coalition on May 9 of 2018, the first alternation of power since the country’s independence. Some of the key promises made by the PH’s manifesto are related to the energy sector, including a fast growth of renewable generation and the promotion of green technologies. This paper discusses the global energy scenario, Malaysia’s energy policy challenges, and explains why it is important to put energy innovation at the forefront of the national development strategy.
