We proudly announce the opening of our new office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It's been a long time coming!
In this new year of the Water Tiger, we are delighted to welcome Azrina Abdul Samat and Raihana Idayu Rahmat to the TLG Asia Pacific team. Azrina brings experience in electricity, gas, and airport regulation having worked in all three sectors. Together, Azrina and Raihana extend and complement our core capabilities and experience in Malaysia and across the region.
TLG team members have been advising stakeholders in Malaysia's energy sector for nearly 30 years, dating back to the early 1990s when Stefan Robertsson, then wearing an IPP developer hat, worked on one of Malaysia's seminal IPP projects. Later that same decade, Mike Thomas advised EPU and the IGSO Task Force on energy market restructuring options. Since then TLG team members have engaged with key stakeholders in Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah, and Sarawak on many energy sector initiatives, including: new regulatory frameworks and applications such as third party access, IBR, carbon markets, and tariff design; commercial energy sector transactions; PPA disputes; and a broad range of sustainability and energy transition opportunities and initiatives.
TLG operates seamlessly from offices throughout Asia Pacific to combine the best of local understanding, international experience, and rigorous analysis. Whether it be...
- renewable energy development and options;
- incentive-based regulation, tariff design, or third party access regimes;
- the role of gas or the impact of gas markets;
- solar and battery storage and power export strategies;
- support to multinationals aiming to achieve CO2
- the value of renewable energy and corporate PPAs and other options for achieving crucial sustainability objectives;
- reviewing and analysing traditional IPP PPAs or providing economic evidence in commercial contract disputes;
- modelling and simulating market opportunities or advising on the evolution of the 'NEDA' wholesale market; or
- outbound investment in other Asia Pacific energy markets;
...TLG helps our clients make decisions that are well-informed by a deep understanding of the underlying economics and fundamentals.
Our Malaysian office opening is in many ways well overdue. It was a client in Malaysia who suggested over a decade ago that our company name was a little odd, but would be easy to remember. It was a client in Malaysia who offered one of our first major engagements during our extraordinarily challenging starting-up period. It was a team in Malaysia that started working together in 1998 and has stayed in touch over these many years. It's been a professional journey, but also a personal one.
