Trina Solar Co., Ltd., one of the world’s leading solar solutions providers, announced that it has secured the 50 MWac (71 MWdc) Floating Solar Photovoltaic (FPV) project in the Malaysian state of Sarawak, in the auction held by Sarawak Energy Berhad, a vertically integrated power utility in Sarawak and also Malaysia’s largest renewable energy provider. This will be the first large-scale FPV project to be built in Sarawak. Located at the Batang Ai Hydroelectric Plant, this project will be built on the Plant’s reservoir surface of 191.12 Ha. The electricity generated from this solar project will see an increase in alternative renewables source in Sarawak’s energy generation portfolio.

Keppel Infrastructure’s wholly owned subsidiary, Keppel Energy Nexus Pte Ltd (Keppel) has been awarded a grant from the Energy Market Authority (EMA) and JTC, to pilot Singapore’s first membrane-based nearshore floating solar photovoltaic (PV) system at Jurong Island. Compared to the conventional floating PV systems used in Singapore in calmer water bodies such as reservoirs, the membrane-based PV system is designed based on floating PV specialist Ocean Sun’s technology to harness solar energy reliably amid stronger waves and rougher sea conditions in nearshore marine environment. This is achieved by attaching solar panels directly onto large circular reinforced membranes protected by a high-density polyethylene pipe structure surrounding the membrane, which creates a stable and safe platform.

GULF Joins Forces With Central Retail To Spearhead Solar Energy Production And Retailing, Setting Targets As Thailand’s Leader In Renewable Energy By 2026

GULF Energy Development Public Company Limited (GULF), Thailand’s leading energy company, announced the establishment of Greengen Energy Co., Ltd. (GGE) in partnership with Thailand’s retail leader Central Retail Corporation Public Company Limited, or CRC, to spearhead the solar energy business, which respond to the needs of businesses and consumers who demand cleaner energy for a sustainable world. The partnership will be the model for the production and retailing of renewable energy, starting with the use of rooftops across five Thai Watsadu branches to install solar panels and produce solar power in 2022, followed by the expansion nationwide to distribute solar energy in Q1/2023 with targets to be the leader in clean energy for Thais by 2026.

NEFIN Group Signs Binding Agreement With Solarlink For Large Scale Solar Development Project In Taiwan

NEFIN Group, Asia’s leading carbon neutrality solutions provider and investor, has signed a binding agreement with their business partner, Solarlink Energy Co. Ltd., to cooperate on a large-scale solar development project in Taxi, Yunlin of Taiwan. The National Development Council (NDC) of Taiwan unveiled a road map in late March 2022 for Taiwan’s push to become “carbon neutral,” with sources of renewable energy to account for at least 60% of the nation’s energy mix (with nuclear power excluded). According to NDC Minister Kung Ming-hsin, Taiwan is capable of increasing its electricity supply by 2% each year, sufficient for companies to expand their operations. NDC also revealed that heavy users of electricity, such as Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., have inked deals to buy green energy to be developed by local suppliers for the next 20 years. The strong partnership between NEFIN and Solarlink will essentially help the Taiwan government to achieve its sustainability goals.
