IDEAS Online Discussion: The Future of Malaysia’s Energy Mix
2 October @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Balancing an increasing share of sustainable energy without compromising on access, affordability and job creation has been a central concern to policymakers across the world and Malaysia is no exception. In recent years Malaysia has been progressing the use of renewables, in line with international Paris commitments.
But at the same time, Malaysia has also increased its use of coal – despite an abundance of natural gas. It is in this context that the government will now need to consider the future of energy policy as it develops the 12th Malaysia Plan. Investments in the energy sector, such as power plants, are designed to have a useful life of decades, therefore decisions taken today will impact future generations for years to come – how to strike the right balance between sustainability, affordability and jobs? This Online Discussion will cover these issues and a Policy paper by IDEAS on the same topic.
