  This project is to support the Malaysia’s long term efforts to manage its energy demand in more sustainable manner which will include the use of energy for all major energy consumption sectors. It can be achieved by developing DSM master plan as stated in the Eleventh Malaysia Plan document. The DSM has been identified as one of the SCP Strategies (Strategy B3) and assist Malaysia’s target in reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity of GDP by 45% by 2030 relative to emissions intensity of GDP in 2005.
  Under the Eleventh Malaysia Plan, EPU will initiate a study on DSM masterplan which covers the whole spectrum of the energy sector.DSM is vital tool to reduce peak electricity demanad impacting the overall load on an electricity network. This will have beneficial effects including mitigating electrical systems emergencies and increasing system reliability. It will also result in less dependense on expensive imports of fuel, reducing peak power demand and minimizing harmful emissions to the environment. The scope of the new DSM master plan will include the electrical and thermal energy, including usage in the transport sector.
  The key objectives are as followed:
  1) Thermal and Transport Sectors
  To establish the baseline on DSM initiatives, focus areas and boundary setting as well as framework activities for the full-fledged and comprehensive DSM study.
  2) Electrical Sector
  a) To conduct preliminary energy baseline study on demand side management (DSM) via gap analysis the NEEAP/NEEMO implementation.
  b) To perform macroeconomics energy modelling analysis against Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth rate for year 2020, 2025 and 2030 and with respective to the sectors; industries, commercial buildings and residential.
  c) To prepare the detailed blueprint for the implementation of DSM initiatives with specified targets and measures for the implementation of a long term DSM program in Malaysia that is expected to be rolled out in the 12nd and 13rd Malaysia Plans.
  The deliverables of the study is grouped as followed:
  1) For the Thermal and Transport sectors, key deliverables are:
  a) Baseline studies on DSM related initiatives.
  b) Identification of focus and boundary setting, and
  c) Results framework and activities for comprehensive and detailed study.
  2) The main deliverable for Electrical Sector is a comprehensive and detailed report consisting of proposed policy, action plan and its monitoring mechanism.
