EPP 6.0 - Growing Wafer and Cell Producers

This EPP targets to increase production capacity of wafer and cell producers from 2.3 gigawatts to 23 gigawatts by 2020 to become the world’s second-largest maker of solar cells. This will be achieved by attracting multinational solar companies to Malaysia.

Highlights

  • Malaysia doubled its combined production capacity for wafers and cells to 4,800 MW in 2014.
  • In 2014, a new wafer cell company, Comtec Solar International (M) Sdn Bhd, commenced trial production of about 10 MW in Kuching, Sarawak.
