    Nik Nazmi: Energy Efficiency and Conservation Bill expected to be tabled this year

    May 26, 2023 - Malay Mail


      The Natural Resources, Environment and Climate Change Ministry aims to table the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Bill in the Dewan Rakyat this year, said minister Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad.


      The proposed Act, among others, will strengthen the legal framework related to energy efficiency and conservation to ensure full involvement at various levels of institutions and organisations, he said.

      'The act will assist in not only regulating energy efficiency and conservation but also assist consumers to adopt more efficient equipment and appliances and better manage their energy consumption to reduce wastage,' he said in his speech at the Sustainability Leadership Seminar 2023 here today.

      He said many countries including the United Kingdom had adopted such laws requiring electrical appliances to be energy efficient, which led to a consistent drop in energy demand in the country for 20 years.

      In March this year, Nik Nazmi said the Bill was at the research stage and would be finalised before being brought to the Attorney General's Chambers and presented to the Cabinet.

      Stressing that much more needs to be done for energy efficiency and conservation, Nik Nazmi said Malaysia must continue to push the boundaries of innovation, collaboration and education to ensure a sustainable future for all. ? Bernama
