Abstract

Energy is the foundation that supports and spurs the socio-economic development of a country. It is a fact that development is not possible without energy and sustainable development is not possible without sustainable energy. As a country that is aiming to become a high-income nation by 2020, Malaysia is in a quandary to come up with a plan for energy security to ensure sustainable economic development, while at a same time striking a balance in the electricity demand-and-supply chain. This paper studies and estimates how these two areas that are often overlooked; energy efficiency and renewable energy can seriously contribute to the local energy sector and find the equilibrium in the electricity demand and supply, and eventually gauge whether a nuclear power plant or more fossil-fuelled power plant is necessary in the near future.
