Malaysia installed 31.78MW of solar PV under its Feed-in-Tariff (FiT) scheme last year.
This brings its cumulative installed solar capacity under the FiT regime to 294.85MW. Also under FiTs, the nation’s cumulative renewable energy capacity has reached 458MW.
Solar installations have declined each year from its 106.5MW peak in 2013.
Last week, the Energy Commission of Malaysia (EC) issued a Request for Proposal document hoping to auction up to 460MWac of large-scale solar capacity. Under EC’s second competitive bidding programme, it hopes to awards projects of 1-30MW capacity to make up a total of 360MW in Peninsular Malaysia and 100MW in Sabah and Labuan in the East.
