The Step Forward: Options for the Displacement of Power Generation from Oil and Gas in Malaysia Using a System Dynamics Approach

Hsieh Y. Lee and Eng H. Yap
Abstract—Malaysia’s power generation from oil and gas grows at an exponential rate, and is forecasted to be even more prominent in years to come. With rising global concerns over CO2 emissions and depleting resources, it has become vital for the country’s power generating sector to be sustainable. This paper investigates the gradual displacement of Malaysia’s reliance upon oil and gas to generate power using a system dynamics approach by simulating production over a 40 year period from 1985 to 2025. With Malaysia aspiring to achieve its CO2 emissions reduction by 40% by 2020 from 2005 levels, this can be leapfrogged by considering alternative energy scenarios alongside the country’s power generation from oil and gas.

Index Terms—Malaysia, oil and gas, system dynamics, displacement.
