Malaysia Establishes Feed-in Tariffs to Accelerate Renewable Energy Deployment

Clean Energy Solutions Center facilitates collaboration to develop and implement supportive policies

Malaysia has taken steps to further clean energy deployment by mandating adoption of a renewable energy feed-in tariff (FiT) mechanism under the country’s 2011 Renewable Energy Act. The Malaysian Sustainable Energy Development Authority (SEDA) and the Clean Energy Regulators Initiative (CERI) are working together to enable FiT implementation and renewable energy development, with CERI supporting SEDA’s efforts to review and improve FiTs for solar photovoltaic (PV), bioenergy, small hydropower, and geothermal energy resources and technologies. The Clean Energy Ministerial’s (CEM’s) Clean Energy Solutions Center Ask an Expect service facilitated the SEDA-CERI partnership.
