On 27 July 2023, Malaysia’s Ministry of Economy launched Part 1 of the National Energy Transition Roadmap (“NETR”). The NETR aims to accelerate the transition to clean energy, in line with the Twelfth Malaysia Plan 2021-2025 which outlines Malaysia’s aspirations to achieve net zero greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions by as early as 2050, and the National Energy Policy 2022-2040 which lays the groundwork for the transformation of the energy landscape.

Part 1 of the NETR outlines 10 flagship catalyst projects and initiatives based on six energy transition levers:

  • Energy efficiency
  • Renewable energy
  • Hydrogen
  • Bioenergy
  • Green mobility
  • Carbon capture, utilisation and storage ("CCUS")

On 29 August 2023, Part 2 of the NETR was launched. It focuses on establishing the energy mix, GHG emissions reduction pathway, selected targets and initiatives.

This Alert discusses the initiatives set out in the NETR.
