Climate change is an urgent global priority with a need for focused action over the next decade. Power generation makes up 41% of today’s emissions globally – this presents us with a significant opportunity to decarbonize the power sector, while solving the energy trilemma of sustainable, reliable and affordable power. As countries around the world stand together to combat climate change, there is a move away from traditional coal fueled power to lower carbon energy sources. What about Malaysia?

In its effort to reduce greenhouse gases Malaysia seeks to achieve a 45% CO2 emissions reduction target by 2030 across key industries including power generation. Given the challenge of growing economies to reduce emissions, availability of viable lower carbon technology has become a critical focus. What are the challenges and opportunities in the area of technology, infrastructure, and policies and regulations to support the country’s emission reduction goals?
