The conversation highlighted few key takeaways as below:

  • Pragmatic energy policy plays an important role to balance the energy trilemma and helping Malaysia to reduce and achieve its carbon emissions target.
  • Decarbonising the energy system is vital in reducing the carbon emissions, at the same time proactively develop renewables and low-carbon solutions with natural gas to play a substantial role in meeting our climate commitment.
  • Complementing renewables, natural gas in Malaysia will continue to play significant role in the future.  A clear future policy direction is needed to ensure a smooth transition in the next 30 years and beyond.
