China-based PV solutions provider ET Energy and engineering consultancy Northwest Electric Power Design Institute (NWEPDI) have signed an EPC agreement with Malaysian PV developer UiTM Solar Power for a 61MW solar project in Malaysia.
France-based floating PV specialist Ciel & Terre is expecting to launch a floating solar equipment manufacturing facility in Thailand next March and is in the final stages of approving a Vietnam facility.
The Ministry of Power in the Indian state of Kerala has directed the state utility to provide training on grid-connected solar rooftop systems to its field-level employees, in what has been claimed to be a first in India. Meanwhile, a 200MW solar park has also been downgraded to 50MW.
The Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) has aborted a proposed 200MW solar project and industrial area development at the Redondo Peninsula, due to the developer’s apparent lack of both funding and experience.
