Huawei Technologies (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (Huawei Malaysia) has forged a partnership with Fabulous Sunview Sdn Bhd (Sunview) to jointly accelerate the green digital energy transition in Malaysia. The collaboration involves reducing the industrial and commercial carbon footprint of local businesses, through the deployment of Solar Photovoltaic (PV) technology in the country.
The partnership, formalised through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), will see Huawei Malaysia supplying solar inverters to Sunview. By integrating Huawei’s cutting-edge smart PV solutions, users will be able to receive better and higher yields at lower costs, delivered at an optimum value. Under the MoU, Sunview will become the purchaser of the inverters and turnkey solutions for large-scale solar projects.
Huawei Malaysia will also undertake the role of being the technology advisor for this collaboration, in addition to conducting product training for Sunview.
The MoU was signed by Chief Executive Officer of Fabulous Sunview Sdn Bhd, Mr Ong Hang Ping and Vice President of Digital Power Business of Huawei Malaysia, Mr Chong Chern Peng at the Huawei Customer Solution Innovation Center in Kuala Lumpur.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Huawei, the world’s leading Smart PV technology provider. The company’s Smart PV solutions are currently widely adopted by many of the industry PV investors as well. We believe that our partnership will help accelerate the renewable energy adoption in the region, especially Malaysia, in line with our company’s mission to let everyone live sustainably with renewable energy,” said Mr Ong Hang Ping, CEO of Fabulous Sunview Sdn Bhd.
“Looking ahead, the incorporation of Huawei’s solar inverters will help strengthen the solar energy solution experience, allowing us to use innovative technologies to progress towards creating a self- generating energy environment and meeting the zero-carbon mission goal,” he added.
According to Mr Chong Chern Peng, the MoU marks an opportunity to bridge the gap in Malaysia’s solar industry by assisting in the acceleration of the nation’s transition toward green and sustainable energy.
“At Huawei, we strive to use clean and renewable energy that boasts low carbon emissions. Through this partnership with Sunview, we are able to further expand the use of solar across Malaysia and assist the nation in achieving its goal of becoming a carbon-neutral nation by 2050,” he said.
Mr Chong added, “We are honoured that Sunview has chosen to collaborate with us in this journey – which is a partnership that truly combines each partner’s expertise, strength and experience. Together, we can develop projects that utilise clean energy on a wider scale to support green development and boost the solar market along with Malaysia’s renewable energy industry. Achieving carbon neutrality will require the collective efforts of all industry players. Together, we can develop the local ecosystem and drive it towards sustainable development.
“The MoU signing today cements the path towards the development of a significant, market-driven solar industry capable of supplying high-value smart PV solutions that are safe, secure, reliable as well as economically sustainable, while at the same time providing broad-based benefits for society.”
Solar energy has been a key pillar of the global energy transition and has become the preferred energy source of choice due to rapid advancements in high-tech solutions that have drastically improved its accessibility, adaptability, pricing, sustainability, and productivity output.
