Report summary

A key theme on the ground in Malaysia is gas market liberalisation. The Energy Commission (EC) hopes to implement third party access (TPA) by Q3 2016, opening access to gas infrastructure and pipelines. The regulated gas price to the power sector is already undergoing stepped increase of RM1.5 every six months since 2014. These pricing reforms will have direct impact on the power tariffs regulated via cost pass through mechanism since 2014. The EC is doing their due diligence to analyse the impact of gas price reform on power tariffs. The future fuel mix in Malaysia will be dictated to a great extent by the government's aspirations for affordable prices and their commitment to reduce carbon footprint.
