The field of renewable energy (RE) has been widely growing topic of fascination by researchers, industrialist and the public alike. This study tried to highlight the development of renewable energy usage in Malaysia as well as the world. In this paper, initiatives taken by the private and government schemes to nurture the development of sustainable energy in Malaysia are addressed. Malaysia is well rich within its huge potential of the use of sustainable natural resources due to an extremely moderate climate around the year. Only a minor adaptation and mitigation strategies need to be taken to push a popular and effective use of safe and renewable energy. It is necessary to develop proper plan by the local government as well as the central government of Malaysia for the sustainable development of renewable energy in Malaysia. The issues highlighted in this study is expected to garner a better understanding of how the topic of renewable energy can be better reflected as a growing and strengthening filed of research.
