System Dynamics of a Marine Renewable Energy Scheme (MRE) for Malaysia
MRE provides great potential for Malaysia, an emerging economy, to diversify its primary energy mix and ensuring the security of its energy supply. In this paper, the state-of-the-art of each MRE type is studied alongside hydrographical and geographical conditions of Malaysian waters. It is based upon this knowledge that an MRE scheme is proposed for Malaysia. However, introducing a complex MRE system into Malaysia’s energy pool requires in-depth understanding of key governing factors and the dynamic behaviours of its implementation using a systemic approach. Results from system dynamics modelling have identified key-enablers to fast-track the implementation of MRE in Malaysia.
