The Sarawak People's Energy Party (Malay: Parti Tenaga Rakyat Sarawak, abbreviated TERAS) was a political party in Malaysia. It is among the latest 20 new parties to have their registration approved by the Registrar of Society (RoS) and received permission to operate as a political party in 2013.[1][2]

At its inception, Sarawak People's Energy Party (TERAS) was a pro-Barisan Nasional (BN) splinter party of Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP), set-up by its disgruntled leaders.[3] However the hopes of TERAS to join BN were rejected by the coalition.[3] An arrangement was made between TERAS an Barisan Nasional for the division of seats contested in the Sarawak state election, 2016.[4]

In 2016, TERAS officially dissolved itself in order to allow their members, who won as direct BN candidates, to join any component party of the coalition.
