Malaysia’s Energy Sector Overview

Installed Power Capacity

  • Electricity demand growth forecast: 4 – 5%
  • Electrification rate : 98.22% (2014)
  • Interconnection with Singapore and Thailand, electricity trade is limited to 75GWh of imports and 45GWh of exports.

Electricity Prices, Commercial Users

C1 tariff is 0.365 + 1.6% RE Fund + ICPT (2.55 sen)

  • 0.396 MYR/kWh landed cost
  • Imbalance Cost Pass -Through (ICPT) mechanism allows for TNB to reflect changes in fuel and other generation-related costs in the electricity tariff


Government Lead Initiatives:

  • Renewable Energy Sources targets: Achieving 20% of Renewable Energy (RE) capacity mix by 2025 (excluding large hydro)
  • Carbon reduction target: reduce GHG by 35% by 2030


  • Net-metering category has been divided into 4 categories which are Residential, Commercial, Industrial and Agriculturefocused on businesses, to target 500 MW through 2020. Excess solar PV generated energy exported back to the grid on a “one-on-one” offset basis from Jan 2019 onwards.
  • As subsidies on fossil fuels are scaled back, increasing power prices will benefit solar generation
