EPP 9.0 - Improving Energy Efficiency

Malaysia’s electricity and energy usage is largely dependent on fossil fuels. However, limited availability of fossil fuels and growing demand has created the need to improve the country’s energy efficiency and spurred the use of alternative sources of energy.


  • Through this EPP, the country’s energy efficiency has improved following Government-led measures that offered households rebates of 5%-7% on energy efficient appliances and to establish a minimum-energy performance standard for products. As such, the number of brands offering energy-efficient appliances has more than doubled to 13 from five, with brands catering for energy-efficient chillers alone rising to five from zero previously.
