In a webinar in July on the first edition of RAM’s Insight Series for 2023, Navigating the Road Ahead – Energising the Future Path, two three-man panels discussed climate risks in renewable energy and social/green mobility in the transport sector, public-private infrastructure financing, and execution and project performance risk trends, among other issues. In a two-part commentary, including responses from audience polls conducted during the webinar, we detail the views of the market experts.

Commenting on the National Energy Transition Roadmap – 10 flagship projects and initiatives under which were unveiled last week – panellists outlined what the long-term strategy for transition would require, financing structures given the lower certainty of revenue, climate change preventive measures and technology impacting the future of power generation. These initiatives are expected to draw stakeholders to come together to help bridge the infrastructure funding gap.

The second part explores what needs to be done to elevate Malaysia’s transport system towards a world class standard, striking a balance between private and public transport and inducing new demand where people use public transport regardless of standing.  Panellists agreed that clarity and transparency of policy decisions are key in spurring industry players to support the government’s aspirations for the sector.
