Malaysia’s intended development progress of green technology policy on energy turned to be very slow and still at its infancy. Currently, there is no clear plan or roadmap on how the government wants to implement green technology on the energy sector. The recent achievement in renewable energy was way far from the set target as set in the Fifth Fuel Diversification Policy. The main objective of this study paper is to investigate the current progress of green technology policy on energy in Malaysia. Policy cycle give was used as methodology. It gave advantage since the basic idea of policy integration is not only to change bureaucracies, but also to actually change the real world it is very important. There are five green technology policies on energy introduced after year 2000 with the latest one of National Renewable Energy Policy 2010. Almost all of the policies from 2000 onwards are still relevant and yet to be fully utilized. The achievement of seven programs under green technology on energy is below average with two programs are considered failed. The most successful programme is the Malaysian Industrial Energy Efficiency Improvement Project (MIEEIP) even though it did not involve major technology revamp. There are six improvements can be made in the implementation of green technology on energy especially in biomass sector. The main development must be focused on palm oil based biomass energy as it will not only provide energy yet it will reduce the green house gases emission simultaneously. With functional energy green technology policy on energy, Malaysia must emphasize on proven programmes to that yield the best result and focus on major improvements in high potential and critical areas.
