The commissioning of two new coal based generation plants in Peninsular Malaysia is expected to increase the consumption of coal for power generation (19.0 million tones) and industrial use (2.2 billion tones) by 2010. Most of the coal is imported but efforts are continuing to enhance the security of supply by exploring the potential for development of local sources, particularly in Sarawak, as well as securing long-term supplies from abroad.
