U-Solar was launched in Malaysia on 23 October 2019, the first solar industry ecosystem to be launched in ASEAN.
The system will assist UOB to connect businesses and consumers across and serves as part of their collective efforts to contribute to a low-carbon economy.
“A sustainable energy industry is key to maintaining healthy development of the economy and community. In working together with our ecosystem partners and customers to open up and to tap opportunities in the solar power industry, we can create a positive economic and social impact,” the deputy chairman and chief executive officer of UOB,Wee Ee Cheong said.
The launch of U-Solar was officiated by the Minister for Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change (MESTECC) Yeo Bee Yin.
“The launch of UOB’s U-Solar programme as an ecosystem play caters to the concerns of the solar industry, whereby it is intended to be Asia’s first integrated solar energy marketplace across UOB’s key Southeast Asia markets—Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia.
“I am proud that UOB has chosen Malaysia to be the first country to launch this programme,” the minister said. – Construction + Online
