It will focus on the development path of solar PV in ASEAN and introduce the development experience in China with an emphasis on the innovative business model of PV+. The joint study aims to provide a clear pathway of action for ASEAN to develop solar, taking the insights of PV+ implementation in ASEAN and China.
To accommodate the capacity building and development of a joint study of Solar PV in ASEAN, the project conduct two times Solar Farm site visits in Indonesia to get some insight and added knowledge from the operation of the Solar farm.
The 1st visit was in Vena Energy Indonesia – Likupang Solar Farm held on 28 March – 1 April 2022. While the 2nd visit of the project is to Komodo Water – Papagarang Clean Drinking Water and PLN UIW NTT – Papagarang, Messah and Seraya Marranu Solar Farms.
