Energy regulations in Malaysia 

Energy in Malaysia is highly regulated by the governmental policies referring to its production, distribution or consumption and the main regulator in this field is the Department of Electricity and Gas Supply

Other representative entities included in the energy field are: 

•    energy supply companies;
•    services companies;
•    research and development companies. 

The main resources used to provide energy services are based on fossil fuel, which refers to various types of resources which are extracted from the soil. In current times, government is trying to impose new regulations promoting the usage of green energy, which should be a more cost-efficient solution on a long-term basis and that will not harm the environment. 

The energy sector in Malaysia is regulated by a few rules, such as: 

•    Petroleum Development Act;
•    Electricity Supply Act;
•    Electricity Regulations

The Electricity Supply Act offers a comprehensive image of the industry, which must provide its services at reasonable prices to its end consumers. At the same time, it prescribes the technical requirements that must be met by an energy installation. Our team of company incorporation representatives in Malaysia can provide more details on this matter.
