In a statement issued by the Malaysian government, through the deputy prime minister, Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof, the number of biogas stations, especially in the agricultural sector should be increased in line with the nation’s objective of boosting the use of Renewable Energy.

The deputy prime minister stated that Renewable Energy or RE not only reduces the country’s dependence on fossil fuels but also helps reduce the burden of the government in the distribution of electricity subsidies.

It was revealed that the cost borne by the government in the distribution of electricity subsidies was very high because it was given to all groups equally and due to this factor there was a need to introduce targeted subsidies.

Currently, the target groups such as the B40 and M40 are given priority to enjoy electricity subsidies but if there was greater availability of Renewable Energy such as biogas facilities the cost borne by the government will be greatly reduced.

The deputy prime minister stated that in order for Malaysia to achieve the national goal of boosting Renewable Energy to 31 percent by 2025 he wants the nine Felcra Bhd mills nationwide to set up biogas station facilities as soon as possible.
