28 January 2022

Rosman Hamzah, Secretary General of MGA, spoke at Awani Webinar “Energizing Malaysia’s Future, with Gas” on 28 January 2022. Moderated by Sharaad Kuttan, Senior Anchor & Producer of Astro Awani, the Webinar also featured fellow panelist, Prof Renato Lima-de-Oliveira, Assistant Professor of Business and Society, Asia School of Business.




Rosman highlighted several important key takeaways on “Natural Gas”:

  • In developing policies relating to energy, it is important for policymakers to address the energy trilemma of energy security, energy equity and environment sustainability. 
  • With multiple sources and reliable infrastructure, natural gas will continue to ensure energy security for the nation and will continue to bring  positive impact to its socio-economic growth.
  • According to a report on Peninsular Malaysia Generation Development Plan 2020 by the Energy Commission, a combined of 21GW of new gas-fired power plant and renewable energy will be added into the peninsular grid capacity by 2039 resulting in a total carbon reduction of 60%.
  • A report by Boston Consulting Group expects gas to make up 39% of power generation installed capacity when Malaysia achieves net zero in 2050.
