KUALA LUMPUR (April 22): Building material wholesaler and distributor Unitrade Industries Bhd’s wholly-owned subsidiary Syarikat Logam Unitrade Sdn Bhd has entered into a collaboration agreement with Huawei Technologies (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd and JJ-LAPP (M) Sdn Bhd.

Unitrade said in a statement on Monday that the agreement aims to advance solar adoption by pooling the collective expertise, resources and technology to facilitate the purchase and sale of Huawei Digital Power-Smart Photovoltaic (PV) solutions.

Under the agreement, Huawei will serve as the technology advisor, while JJ-LAPP will be the authorised value-added partner to promote and sell the smart PV solutions across residential as well as commercial and industrial (C&I) sectors.

Meanwhile, Unitrade will act as the project delivery partner in facilitating broader market access.

“Notably, the smart PV solutions integrate cutting-edge digital technologies into solar power systems to optimise energy generation and efficiency, while enabling remote monitoring and management of solar power systems — a significant advantage for businesses and homeowners,” it said.

It said the agreement also reinforces Unitrade’s commitment to providing a holistic and best-in-class solution for customers seeking to adopt solar energy solutions.

Managing director Nomis Sim Siang Leng said this strategic initiative aligns seamlessly with Unitrade’s commitment to environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles and ambition to contribute to Malaysia's energy transition journey.

“The growing awareness for sustainability initiatives, especially among the commercial and industrial players, signifies a positive shift towards clean energy adoption.

“Encouragingly, the government’s proactive efforts, including the unveiling of the National Energy Transition Roadmap and the recent open bidding for 2GW of the Large-Scale Solar Programme, along with the introduction of Solar for Rakyat incentive scheme, further drive this transition,” he said.
