Exploiting Rooftop Solar Photovoltaic Production at Educational Building in Malaysia Nor Hazlina Md Khairi, Yutaro Akimoto, Keiichi Okajima



The application of rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) systems is currently experiencing a significant increase as an alternative energy provider for different buildings in Malaysia. However, not many educational institutions other than university buildings install solar PV systems. The present work studies the potential of installing solar PV on the rooftop of the public skill training institutions with various roof tilted angles. Results show that even for small rooftop areas, the solar PV potential generation is significantly high and can accommodate the institute’s energy load demand.
