Some Areas of InvestmentOpportunities in Malaysia …
Areas of Opportunities1. Energy sectorIn terms of energy use per capita, Malaysia surpasses the otherASEAN countries like Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines andVietnam.The national energy requirement is predicted to reach 18gigawatts in 2020.Under the Fuel Diversification Policy, the country aims to be lessdependent on fossil fuels in order to reduce carbon emission.Malaysia had implemented the feed-in tariff (FiT) for renewableenergy to enable users to sell excess power to the power grid in2012 with the approval of Renewable Energy Act, whichintroduced the FiT mechanism.
FiT Rates1. FiT Duration of 16 years from Commencement Date are for:a) Biomass (palm oil, agro-based & farming; includingmunicipal solid waste)b) Biogas (including landfill/sewage)2. FiT Duration of 21 years from Commencement Date are for:a) Mini-hydrob) Solar PV

Areas of Opportunities2. Building sectorthe urban population in Malaysia is expected to increase by 40-50%by 2030 and average building in Malaysia consumes more than 250 kwhper square meter per yearWith increase use of green building techniques and materialsenvironmental impacts will be reducedGreen Building Index (GBI), launched on 21 May 2009, has reinforcedthe prospect of green building sector.6 Defining Criteria for Green Buildings:- Energy Efficiency- Indoor Environmental Quality- Sustainable Site Planning and Management- Materials and Resources- Water Efficiency- Innovation
Areas of Opportunities3. Water and waste management sectorMalaysia generates >23,000 tonnes of waste per day; lessthan 5% is being recycled. This amount will increase to30,000 tonnes by year 2020.Overall consumption of water is 2.6 billion cubic meters ayear. It is predicted that water shortage may occur withinthe next 5 years with the doubling of per capita waterconsumption by 2020.Hence, good business opportunities in waste management& recycling and water supply & management
Areas of Opportunities4. Transportation sector Malaysia outperformed Indonesia and Thailand to become thelargest ASEAN vehicle market in the first half of 2009. Analysisshows that air pollution is mainly caused by motorizedvehicles, followed by industries and power stations. Clean andgreen technology is needed for the vehicles and alternativefuels Number of hybrid cars sold had picked up since thegovernment abolished import duty & 50% excise dutyexemption in 2010 Budget Zero import duty & 50% excise duty exemption also applicableto electric cars, hybrid & electric motorcycles
Areas of Opportunities5. Eco ProductsGreen products is a promising sector as consumers areincreasingly environmental conscious. Besides, theMalaysian Government will be giving priority to greenproducts and services in public procurement according tothe 2010 National Budget.In view of the enforcement of green procurement andenvironment regulations globally, there is also pressingneed for Malaysian manufacturers to adapt to the greensupply chains as Malaysia’s trade to GDP ratio is over200%.
