Malaysia has emerged as an international hub for the manufacture of solar photovoltaic (PV) cells, wafers and modules. The southeast Asian nation has been comparatively slow to take up solar energy at home, however.
U.S.-based market leaders First Solar and SunPower, along with South Korea-Germany’s Hanwha Q Cells manufacture the vast bulk of their solar PV cells and modules in Malaysia. Other market-leading manufacturers, including China’s JA Solar and Jinko Solar, have major manufacturing operations there, as well.
