Key Points

The RE Guideline aims to document the existing permits and steps involved in the implementation of SHP projects in Malaysia in an easy-to-use and concise format. The Guideline provides an overview of the various steps involved and approval required from concerned departments or authorities. The RE Guideline provides a means to improve, strengthen and further the development of SHP in Malaysia. The RE Guideline intends to support the deployment of installed capacity from presently 18.30 MW to 261.84 MW by 2019 under the FiT mechanism. An overview of the procedures and steps involved will result in an increase of RE share in the total energy mix, improved energy security, self-dependence on energy, as well as job creation in the ASEAN region.

The publication was developed by the Renewable Energy Support Programme for ASEAN (RESP), a jointly implemented programme by the ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE) and Deutsche Gesellschaft fur International Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) from 2013 – 2016.
