SINGAPORE, May 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — In Asia Pacific, Total Solar Distributed Generation (DG) has completed nearly 8 MW of roof-mounted solar systems so far in 2020, and is projected to complete construction of key projects by end 2020, growing its portfolio of operating solar energy assets in the region by around 60 MW.
Projects completed in 2020 to date include solar rooftops for Bolloré Logistics’ Green Hub in Singapore — the first of the French company’s buildings to be equipped with solar panels, and for Renault Nissan — the largest solar carport In India.

Another estimated 52 MW of solar energy projects in Asia Pacific slated for completion by 2020
Currently, Total Solar DG is constructing solar rooftops on 24 facilities owned by Thai agro-industrial giant Betagro Group. This is one of the largest rooftop solar portfolios in the region, with a total system size of 25 MW and over 62,000 solar panels. Annually, Betagro Group will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 26,000 tonnes, and see cost savings worth several million (US) dollars.
Later in 2020, Total Solar DG will also complete an initial solar project for APT Pranoto Airport in Samarinda, Indonesia. Following the government’s decision to move the capital city from Jakarta to Kutai in 2024, APT Pranoto Airport is expected to become one of the major airports in Indonesia, and will be the first airport in the country to be solarised.
An off-grid, hybrid, island electrification project combining solar power and energy storage is also under way. Through this, Total Solar DG will provide electricity to the remote island of Koh Rong Sanloem in Cambodia.
These key projects are among other ongoing projects in the Philippines, Cambodia, Thailand and Indonesia.Total Solar DG has a development pipeline of 600 MW in Asia Pacific, and is targeting over 1 GW of solar rooftops in the next few years.
