Market engagement – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Malaysian energy demand under a business as usual scenario is projected to grow at 3.6% per annum average over a period of 21 years from 2009 to2030, where final energy used in Malaysia would double from 2000PJ in 2009 to 4030PJ in 2030.

Malaysian government is keen to prolong the period in which the country is self-sufficient in terms of energy demands, yet to date mandatory regulation in the buildings sector is sparse. As a tropical climate demand for air conditioning is high and is growing rapidly with increasing economic development. 

The potential to generate efficiency savings through the building sector is high in Malaysia, rendering this an ideal location for an EEB Lab.
