Southeast Asia has considerable renewable energy which could lead the region to a future that is based on wind, solar, geothermal, hydroelectric dams and biomass. The uneven distribution of these resources within the region, and even within Malaysia, would require some degree of integration. How and to what extent can the exploitation of these dispersed resources enhance Malaysia’s energy security, and what infrastructures, institutions and policy instruments are required for this to occur? This presentation will draw policy lessons from a host of Asian countries in transitioning to a renewable energy future.
