Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) had its early beginnings in 1949 when the Central Electricity Board (CEB) was set up in the then Malaya for generating and distributing electricity.
Subsequently renamed National Electricity Board (NEB) in 1965 to form Malaysia’s sole provider of electricity generation, transmission and distribution. Following a corporatisation and privatisation exercise by the Malaysian Government in September 1990, Tenaga Nasional was successfully listed on the Main Board of the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange (KLSE) in one of the prominent listing exercises on the local bourse.
