P2P Energy Trading Briefing
In January 2020, the Sustainable Energy Development Authority (SEDA) conducted a briefing about peer-to-peer (P2P) energy trading for MPIA members.
In P2P energy trading, consumers with solar photovoltaic (PV) systems on their premises can sell the excess of electricity generated from their solar PV systems to other electricity consumers, at prices agreed by both sellers and buyers.
Malaysia is the second country in ASEAN that has moved into P2P energy trading, which is part of the power supply liberalisation in the country and a consumer empowerment. The programme is currently in the pilot stage.
Beyond this region, P2P energy trading is already in Japan, Europe and the United States.
