Swiss Contribution

Swiss experience in the field of photovoltaic building integration is a key factor in this overall first Global Environment Facility Project (GEF Project) for grid-connected photovoltaic systems. The project builds on an excellent local partnership.


Contact between the local GEF-UNDP Office and the Malaysian authorities developed, following a 2001 presentation from Enecolo on the occasion of SECO supported workshops for the Promotion of Renewable Energies in the ASEAN States. The project on the photovoltaic building integration topic was a result of this contact.

The project includes the GEF project preparation in Malaysia which should help the BIPV market, mainly through solutions in reducing long-term costs. Reference objects serve as models of BIPV applications.
