Abstract

Malaysia construction sector has been known to be a sector that pollutes the environment through its land clearing process to its harvesting of raw material from the environment to be used in construction process. Part of this construction process involves building the energy sectors. Mega power plant projects are important to sustain the Malaysian businesses and operations. However, it cannot be halted totally due to the inevitable necessity to meet the needs of the population. Therefore, the Malaysian government has shown effort to balanced sustainable environment and human advancement through exploration of renewable energy through the introduction and renewable energy (RE) policies and Feed-in-Tariff (FiT). Malaysia's strategic locality in the equator proves prospective for untapped solar energy, in which can be harnessed though Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV). However, the BIPV implement is relatively slow although it has been introduced for more than 10 years although it has so much potential. To address this problem, this paper identifies the five major BIPV stakeholders in Malaysia which are the Government, Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), Developers, Consumers and Research and Development (R&D) together with the problem that these stakeholders face in BIPV implementation. The objective of this research is to suggest focus adding value to rectify the developers' setback that will help expedite BIPV implementation in Malaysia using the Iskandar Region, Johor as case study.
