INGENIEUR Figure 9: PV output potential map for Malaysia Source: https://solargis.com/maps-and-gis-data/download/malaysia/. Combining solar energy resource availability for Malaysia and conversion efficiency of GCPV systems, the potential performance in terms of specific yield is shown in Figure 9. PV PLAYERS IN MALAYSIA Authority The introduction of the Renewable Energy (RE) Act 2011 and the Sustainable Energy Development (SEDA) Act 2011 by the Government of Malaysia (GoM) is a culmination of the initial actions from a programme called the Malaysian Building Integrated Photovoltaic (MBIPV) Project, funded jointly by GoM and the United Nations Development Programme-Global Environmental Facility (GoM- UNDP-GEF) from 2006-2010. Following that, the Malaysia Energy Centre (Pusat Tenaga Malaysia, PTM) was rebranded as the Malaysian Green Technology Corporation (GreenTech Malaysia) and RE issues now fall under the Ministry of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change (MESTECC). A summary of the specific programmes relating to PV laid down by the GoM are: • SURIA1000 (under MBIPV) 2006 – 2010 (ended) • Feed-in-Tariff (FiT) 2012 – 2017 (ended for 6 24 VOL VOL 75 55 JULY-SEPTEMBER JUNE 2013 2018 new applications) • Large Scale Solar (LSS) 2017 – ongoing • Net Energy Metering (NEM) 2017 – ongoing • Self-Consumption (SelCo) 2017 – ongoing Industry The MBIPV project also initiated the formation of an organised industry association called the Malaysian Photovoltaic Industry Association (MPIA) in 2006. From a humble beginning of a handful of members, MPIA now has about 100 members, who are registered Competent Service Providers (CSP) ݥѠ4٥M͕輼)ɜ䤸Qɽ́ѡ5A%ɔ+$Aɽ٥ɕɕɕ͕хѥٔ)љɴȁѡ5ͥͽȁ+$ɕ́䁥ѕɕٕ́)ɹ́ѼѡٕɹЁѡЁ͡ѡ)͍ѡͽȁ+$ ѡѕٽѡ)䰁ݥѠɽչ䁽)́ɝͅѥ̸+$Ʌ܁́ɽѡͽȁ䁍)Ցՙɕ̰͕٥ɽ٥̰)ѕѕɅѽ̰ձх̰)Ʌɽ٥̰Ʌɽ٥́)̸+$ɔѡɽаѡ)ɽͥɽѠͽȁ
