 Policy Overview

The MBIPV project caters for the successful implementation of GC-BIPV (Grid Connected-BIPV) installations in Malaysia under the UNDP/GEF supported Malaysia Building Integrated Photovoltaic (MBIPV) Technology project. The project period coincides with the 9th Malaysia Plan period 2006 to 2010.

The project includes the development of appropriate, proactive and integrated plans and policies that will create conducive environment for widespread adoption of BIPV beyond the 9th Malaysia Plan period to exploit solar PV energy in Malaysia.

The Project aims to develop the framework for a national BIPV program for the 10th Malaysian Plan (2011-2015) and beyond, supported with suitable and customized mechanisms for local conditions to accelerate the market development and enhance the development of the PV industry in the country

Core Activities

Core activities under this portion include the following:

  1. Facilitation of grid connection of BIPV installations to the local utilities’ grids (TNB, SESB in Sabah and SEB in Sarawak) and related metering and billing procedures to account for the PV generated electricity sent into the utility networks.
  2. Facilitating the registration and licensing of BIPV electricity generating systems with the local regulator, Suruhanjaya Tenaga (ST) or the Electricity Inspectorate Unit of the Ministry of Public Utilities in Sarawak.
  3. Preparation of an assessment report to highlight the present techno-economic benefits from the adoption of BIPV systems in Malaysia.
  4. Evaluation of existing incentives and their possible amendment and realignment to spur adoption of grid-connected PV systems in Malaysia and to create a better market environment for the sustained adoption of GC-BIPV beyond the MBIPV Project period.
  5. Compilation of a study of various regulatory or promotional schemes worldwide with emphasis on the more successful mechanisms in creating growing and sustainable BIPV markets. This evaluation has been completed and favours the adoption of a Fed-In-Tariff (FIT) mechanism as the ideal mechanism for the promotion of GC-BIPV power generation.
  6. Formulation of an appropriate institutional framework for a sustainable follow-up BIPV programme, and development of a policy for the promotion, development and utilization of sustainable BIPV technology for Malaysia for incorporation into the 10th Malaysian Plan. This is currently under development as a part of the overall Renewable Energy (RE) policy being formulated with the MEWC (Ministry of Energy, Water and Communications.
Impact assessment of the institutional framework for implementation of the BIPV programme as well as its replication during the 10th Malaysian Plan and beyond as a result of the MBIPV Project.
