Overall Summary: 
The Tenth Malaysian Plan sets goals in order to make Malaysia a high-income nation, as envisioned in Vision 2020. It charts the development of the nation for the next five years, anchored on delivering the desired outcomes for all Malaysians. The Plan is divided in the following Chapters: 1 Malaysia: Charting Development towards a high-income nation; 2. Building on the Nation's strengths; 3. Creating the environment for an unleashing economic growth; 4. Moving towards inclusive socio-economic development; 5. Developing and retaining a first-world talent base; 6. Building an environment that enhances quality of life; 7. Transforming Government to transform Malaysia. The Tenth Malaysia Plan is a step stone towards the achievement of the objective set by Vision 2020 to become a developed nation by 2020. To do so the Economic Transformation Programme and the Government Transformation Programme have been developed and generate the National Transformation Programme.
Efficiency
EE priorities: 
Promoting energy efficiency to encourage productive use of energy.
EE targets: 
Phasing out of incandescent light bulbs by 2014 to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by an estimated 732,000 tonnes and reducing energy usage by 1,074 gigawatts a year.
EE action plans: 
Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water together with Standard and Industrial Research Institute of Malaysia (SIRIM), will develop a national eco-labelling scheme and standards for our products and services that matches international standards.---Increasing the use of energy efficient machineries and equipment such as high efficiency motors, pumps and variable speed drive controls.---Introduction of Minimum Energy Performance Standards for selected appliances to restrict the manufacture, import and sale of inefficient appliances to consumers.---Increasing the use of thermal insulation for roofs in air conditioned buildings to save energy.
EE labeling: 
Increasing energy performance labelling from four (air conditioner, refrigerator, television and fan) to ten electrical appliances (six additional appliances - rice cooker, electric kettle, washing machine, microwave, clothes dryer and dishwasher).
EE building standards: 
Revision of the Uniform Building By-Laws to incorporate the Malaysian Standard: Code of Practice on Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy for Non-Residential Buildings (MS1525).---Wider adoption of the Green Building Index (GBI) to benchmark energy consumption in new and existing buildings.
Renewable Energy
RE priorities: 
Creating stronger incentives for investments in renewable energy (RE).---Energy security will be enhanced through the development of alternative resources, particularly hydro [...].
RE targets: 
Under the Tenth Plan, several new initiatives anchored upon the Renewable Energy Policy and Action Plan will be undertaken to achieve a renewable energy target of 985 MW by 2015[...].---Renewable energy will increase from <1% in 2009 to 5.5% of Malaysia’s total electricity generated by 2015.
RE action plans: 
Establishment of a Renewable Energy Fund from the FiT to be administered by a special agency, the Sustainable Energy Development Authority, under the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water (KeTTHA) to support development of RE.
RE prioritization, portfolio standards: 
Under the Tenth Plan, several new initiatives anchored upon the Renewable Energy Policy and Action Plan will be undertaken to achieve a renewable energy target of 985 MW by 2015, contributing 5.5% to Malaysia’s total electricity generation mix.
RE feed-in tariffs: 
Introduction of a Feed-in Tariff (FiT) of 1% that will be incorporated into the electricity tariffs of consumers to support the development of RE.
Biofuels obligation/mandate: 
In the transport sector, blending of bio-fuel will be made mandatory beginning in 2011 [...].
Public competitive bidding/tendering: 
The electricity supply industry will also be restructured to instill greater market discipline. This will involve measures such as [...] transparent and competitive bidding for new generation plants.
Environment
GHG emissions reduction targets: 
Phasing out of incandescent light bulbs by 2014 to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by an estimated 732,000 tonnes and reducing energy usage by 1,074 gigawatts a year.
Pricing
Fossil fuel subsidies: 
In line with overall strategy to rationalise subsidies, energy subsidies will be reduced, with the goal of achieving market pricing by 2015.
Energy pricing: 
[T]he electricity tariff structure will be reviewed as a means of attracting high-quality investment.---A decoupling approach for energy pricing will be undertaken to explicitly itemise subsidy value in consumer energy bills and eventually delink subsidy from energy use.---Introduction of a Feed-in Tariff (FiT) of 1% that will be incorporated into the electricity tariffs of consumers to support the development of RE.---In line with overall strategy to rationalise subsidies, energy subsidies will be reduced, with the goal of achieving market pricing by 2015.
Energy Supply and Infrastructure
Infrastructure development priorities: 
Putting in place world-class infrastructure for growth by significantly increasing broadband penetration, continuing to upgrade physical infrastructure to enhance access and connectivity, and ensuring effective sourcing and delivery of energy.---Five growth nodes have been identified with the aim of focusing development and investment efforts within SCORE (The Sarawak Corridor Renewable Energy (SCORE)). These growth nodes are Tanjong Manis, Mukah, Samalaju, Baram and Tunoh.---Oil and Gas: To drive growth further, Malaysia will accelerate and optimise the development of remaining domestic reserves and existing infrastructure.---Energy security will be enhanced through the development of alternative resources, particularly hydro as well as importation of coal and liquefied natural gas (LNG) by 2015.
Trade
Energy trade priorities: 
Energy security will be enhanced through the development of alternative resources, particularly hydro as well as importation of coal and liquefied natural gas (LNG) by 2015.
Standard power production and purchasing agreements: 
The electricity supply industry will also be restructured to instill greater market discipline. This will involve measures such as [...] the renegotiation of power purchase agreements.
Investment
Energy sector investment priorities: 
The Government will also focus on developing comprehensive innovation and research and development (R&D) infrastructures in selected areas where Malaysia has inherent strength and competitive advantage (such as [...] and oil and gas).
Financial incentives for energy infrastructure: 
Establishment of a Renewable Energy Fund from the FiT to be administered by a special agency, the Sustainable Energy Development Authority, under the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water (KeTTHA) to support development of RE.
Independent power producers: 
[T]he gas supply industry will be further liberalised to facilitate the entry of new suppliers and third-party access arrangements.
Public Private Partnerships: 
[T]he gas supply industry will be further liberalised to facilitate the entry of new suppliers and third-party access arrangements.---During the Plan period, efforts will be intensified to move the E&E industry up the value chain through effective PPPs.
