Kuala Lumpur, Tuesday (1 April 2014): The Malaysian Government since the 8th Malaysia Plan in 2001 has embedded renewable energy into the energy mix. The rationale for this is to increase the country’s energy security, autonomy and to address climate change. This is in particular to reduce the country’s dependency on fossil fuel and to utilize indigenous resources that are renewable. As such, the Government has implemented the Small Renewable Energy Power (SREP) programme which spanned a decade concluding 2010. However, as at the end of 2010, the renewable energy (RE) projects connected to the grid was only 61.2 MW.
