Other Services – Utilities

Utilities

The utilities sub-sector covers energy and water utilities services. Energy services encompass power generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity by Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), Syarikat SESCO Bhd. (SESCO) and Sabah Electricity Sdn. Bhd. (SESB). Water utilities services are provided by Suruhanjaya Perkhidmatan Air Negara (SPAN) and Pengurusan Aset Air Berhad (PAAB).

 

In 2019, the sub-sector registered RM32.58 billion approved investments and emerged as the second-largest contributor to approved investments in the services sector, after real estate.

 

Efforts have been put into place by the Government to ensure long-term sustainability of the energy and water sector through continuous investment in new infrastructure and state-of-the-art technology deployment. A good governance in the future energy economy will be important in setting the tone for harnessing renewable energies and energy storage technologies. The Government has outlined targets in the Green Technology Master Plan (2017-2030) for green technology development to create a low-carbon and resource-efficient nation.
