Dear Subscriber,
SDGs In Play: #7 Affordable and Clean Energy
View from UN Global Compact Malaysia
View from UN Global Compact Malaysia
When looking into the model for renewable energy, we need not look so far; Sarawak’s energy production is 74% hydroelectricity, 13% natural gas (LNG) and 13% from other sources including renewables. The Borneo state is projected to increase its share of renewable energy production for the foreseeable future.

In fact, when it comes to green energy, Malaysia is pushing on all fronts. By 2030, we have set targets of 100,000 electric cars usage, 100,000 electric motorcycles, 2,000 electric buses and 125,000 charging stations across the country. We have tested the electric bus concept with the Sunway BRT Line and proven that green public transportation is the way to go. The next decade is about solidifying this move towards a Malaysia with cleaner and more affordable energy.
