Other topics to be addressed include megatrends, the energy trilemma, digitalisation, and a smarter future.

Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water (KeTTHA) secretary general Datuk Seri Dr Zaini Ujang said the industry is currently facing disruptions from various technologies such as the renewable energy

“Renewable energy will be disruptive to the power industry because it sees a diversification of the people capable of producing energy... anyone can produce it,” said Zaini during the soft launch of CEPSI 2018.

Malaysia is striving to reach a 30% renewable energy contribution by 2030 from the current 22.4%. In order to achieve this, consumers will have to become producers. Those who are able to produce energy, will be rewarded by the government in the form of subsidies, large-scale solar facilities, net energy metering mechanisms and more.

Set to be the largest power utility conference ever to be held in the country, CEPSI 2018 will be hosted by Tenaga Nasional Berhad from 17-22 September
