“Both parties will leverage on their respective areas of expertise to provide technical assistance related to the subsequent design, engineering, procurement, construction, operations and maintenance of the projects,” it added.

The signing came following the recent joint venture in April 2022.

The spokesperson noted that about 40% of Malaysia’s energy supply is expected to be sourced from renewable sources by 2035.

“Given the strong market sentiment towards renewables, our collaboration with EDPR Sunseap has proven to be advantageous and has since elevated our competitive status in the solar industry, as evidenced by the 2 recent major solar rooftop projects awarded last month,” said Reservoir Link Executive Director Thien Chiet Chai.
