Solar Energy Symposium – Solutions from Germany

Under the programme “Energy Solutions – Made in Germany”, which is supported by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy, the Malaysian-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MGCC) is organising a Renewable Energy Symposium & Business Matching Event with a focus on Solar Energy in Kuala Lumpur from 25-27 September 2018.

This event aims at presenting German technology solutions and expertise to all stakeholders from both the private and public sectors in renewable energy related fields in Malaysia, particularly those involved in solar power generation.

The German Solar PV market is the largest on a global comparison. Almost half of the photovoltaic production technology used globally originates from German machine and installation producers. PV-generated power amounted to about 40 TWh and covered approximately 7.2% of Germany’s net electricity consumption including grid losses in 2017.

Renewable energy as a whole accounted for approximately 39% of net electricity consumption, while PV and total RE accounted for about 6.7% and 36% of Germany’s gross electricity consumption respectively. At the end of 2017, the total PV power installed in Germany was approximately 43 GW.

At the Symposium on 25 September 2018, German technology providers as well as expert speakers will speak on their experiences and introduce their projects, solutions and applications. A business matching between German technology providers and Malaysian companies will follow from 26-27 September with pre-arranged appointments.
