Malaysia is diligently focusing its effort in developing renewable energy technology to diversify its energy sources and ensure security and sustainability in the energy sector. The development of renewable energy sector is expected to achieve 20 percent by the year 2025 to fulfil the aim of lowering greenhouse gases (GHG) produced by the energy industry. It is aligned with the commitment to the Paris Agreement signed in 2015 to reduce the emissions intensity to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by 45% relative to 2005 levels by 2030. The rapid development of advance technology in the energy industry paved a new idea of integration of different energy resources for various industrial purposes, including power generation. The hybrid system between nuclear and renewable energy is an innovative application focusing to increase the efficiency and availability of electricity production, as well as providing additional services to industries from the energy generation process in the hybrid power plant. This paper presents the overview of the current scenario in the Malaysia energy industry, renewable energy status, the potential of nuclear-renewable hybrid system and the challenges of nuclear power development in Malaysia.
