Malaysia Power Report Q2 2015: New Research Report Available at Fast Market Research

New Energy research report from Business Monitor International is now available from Fast Market Research


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/11/2015 -- The Malaysian power sector is set to grow at a slower rate in 2015 than in preceding years as we expect no thermal projects to be completed in that year. However, we expect sector growth to accelerate after 2015 as most of the major thermal projects being developed in Malaysia for completion after 2015 are on schedule.

We forecast electricity generation in Malaysia to grow by 1.9% in 2015. This growth rate marks a significant slowdown from previous years, with the five-year historical average growth for power generation at around 8.0%, according to our estimates. We do not expect the slowdown in 2015 to continue in 2016 and over the long term. We have maintained our long-term forecasts for electricity generation in Malaysia this quarter as the major projects we have incorporated into our forecasts after 2015 remain on schedule. We forecast electricity generation in Malaysia to grow by an average of 4.2% per annum between 2015 and 2023.
