(Sustainable Energy Development Authority)
(Universiti Teknologi MARA)
- MPIA (Malaysia
Photovoltaic Industry Association)
collaborations are important because Solar PV SBU needs:
ensure that Solar PV training are in line with Government’s direction in Green
Technology. SEDA is under KeTTHA (Kementerian Tenaga, Teknologi Hijau dan Air),
hence their guidance on how to comply with the direction is invaluable.
learn from UiTM’s experience as the first centre to run GCPV and OGPV system
certification. Aside from this, UiTM is also the home of PVMC (Photovoltaic
Monitoring Centre), which is responsible for monitoring all PV installations in
under the Malaysian Building Integrated PV (MBiPV) project.
To work closely with MPIA in gaining Solar PV technology update in opportune
fashion. INSEP students under SHRDC also can benefit as well, as MPIA can
embrace them as OJT (On-The-Job) trainees.
