Electricity Generation: [...]
• Exploration of other RE sources [...]
• Long-term plan for electricity tariff rate for higher renewable mix.
The aspirational targets for installed RE capacity are set at 20% in 2020, 23% by 2025 and 30% by 2030 as compared with 18.9% in 2016. However, it is conditional on the levelled cost in each RE source is close to conventional resources, with no new major coal-fired power plants established post 2020.
The targets for LSS farms are elaborated as follows:
• LSS farm - By 2020, Malaysia will have an additional installed capacity of 1,200 MW of LSS farms, of which 200 MW will be in Sabah and 1,000 MW will be in Peninsular Malaysia.
The targets for large hydro powered generation plants are elaborated as follows:
• Large Hydro - By 2025, there will be an additional installed capacity of 1,943MW large hydro dam power plants in Malaysia i.e. in Kelantan (Nenggiri – 300MW), Pahang (Tekai – 168MW), Sabah (Upper Padas – 180MW) and Sarawak (Baleh – 1,295MW).
In the existing plan, NEM will be applicable to solar PV rooftop installations power generation. It aims to achieve a cumulative solar capacity of 500 MW by 2020, starting with a 100 MW quota per year. NEM is open to all electricity consumers with the following target capacities: industry (45%), commercial (45%) and residential (10%).
RE action plans:
• Energy Planning Framework
• Planting Up Scenario
• Exploration of other RE sources, NEM, LSS plant, Hydro power generation plant
• RE new technologies and innovation
• Long-term plan for electricity tariff rate for higher renewable mix
• Enhanced cross sectoral collaboration in R&D&C to develop localised technology.
RE public awareness/promotional programmes:
From 2016 to 2020, the Government aims to provide training to 1,740 personnel through SEDA’s various training courses. These trainings will create experts in
the field of biomass, biogas, mini hydro and solar PV.
