The report will cover findings, impacts and lessons learned which would be useful for subsequent events of similar nature. Background This workshop was part of the awareness and capacity building programme (under subtask 1.1) of the Malaysia Building Integrated photovoltaic (MBIPV) project. The workshop was organized to cater for demand on the design of grid-connected PV systems. This demand arose after the BIPV seminar which was carried out on the 16 th March Thus, even though the workshop was not planned at the start of the year, the workshop is warranted as there is clear indication of the need. The objectives of the workshop are: To enhance knowledge for potential engineers who may be involved in designing of grid-connected PV systems To create a pool of credible resources among professional consulting engineers who are ready for the take up of SURIA 1000 at the end of the year The target audience was engineers and PV service providers/consultants who will be responsible for designing grid-connected BIPV systems. Methodology / Process The workshop was conducted by Mr. Geoff Stapleton, international consultant who was engaged by MBIPV Project to achieve the objective of capacity building among the engineers and BIPV installers. The participant fee is RM300 per pax. PTM Corporate members will be entitled to 30% discount while non-ptm Corporate members are entitled to early bird discount of 15% for those who registered before 24 th May The fee was established based on training rates practised by Institute of Engineers in Malaysia (IEM) and Association of Consulting Engineers in Malaysia (ACEM) for their training programmes. The discounts offered were to reward early registrations and PTM Corporate members. Marriot Putrajaya hotel was the preferred venue as the rates offered by the hotel was most competitive compared to other 5 star hotels (e.g. Palace of the Golden Horses). It was also recommended by PTM s Deputy Director in previous correspondents and MBIPV National Project Leader. The workshop coincided with the World Environment Day promoted by STAR Publications. Since MBIPV supported the special event by publishing a 1-page colour advertisement and another 1-page write up, each participants for the workshop was given a copy of the STAR newspaper that morning. This is to promote MBIPV during the workshop via its participation in the World Environment Day. Impact Analysis Analysis on Registration Although the maximum capacity of the workshop was intended to be 30, in the end, the number of participants accepted was 36. Several participants had to be turned down and a maximum limit of 4 participants was imposed for each organization. Out of 36 participants, 2 were from Penang, 3 from Kuching, 1 from Malacca and 1 from Singapore. Analysis Based on Feedback Forms Of the 36 participants, 1 left before the end of the workshop. Thus 35 copies of feedback were distributed to the participants. Out of the 35 forms distributed, 30 of the participants returned the feedback form. Therefore, the attrition rate was only 14%. The analysis from chart 1 showed that 60% of the participants felt that the contents based on new ideas and knowledge gained was excellent. 30% of the participants thought it was good while only 10% perceived the contents as average. Chart 1: Contents Rating Based on New Ideas & Knowledge Gained Poor Average Rate Good Excellent 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% 70% Percentage (%) On the subject clarity, 50% of the participants perceived the subject clarity as excellent, while 40% felt it was rated good and only 10% rated clarity as average. Chart 2: Ratings on Clarity of Subject Poor Average Rate Good Excellent 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% Percentage (%) On the quality of knowledge presented, 58% felt it was excellent while 38% felt it was good. Only a minor percentage gave a rating of average to the quality of knowledge presented. Chart 3: Ratings on Quality of Knowledge Presented Poor Average Rate Good Excellent 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% Percentage (%) Half of the participants felt the trainer was excellent while the other half rated the trainer as good. Chart 4: Ratings on Trainer Poor Average Rate Good Excellent 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% Percentage (%) The overall organization of the workshop was favourable among a majority of the participants. Chart 5: Ratings on Overall Workshop Poor Average Rate Good Excellent 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% Percentage (%) Conclusion Admittedly this workshop served as a trial for remaining similar workshops to improve on. Most of the participants felt that time allocated for design exercises were too short and as the calculations for the design are complex, the participants did not have sufficient time to solve the design questions. A second workshop for the same topic is scheduled on the 25 th July This is to cater for those who were turned down for this workshop due to constraint imposed on the maximum capacity for this workshop. The coming workshop will incorporate feedback from this workshop to increase the effectiveness. In spite of the minor short comings in the programme time allocation, the collective feedback was still by and large, encouraging.

For me as this field is still new, I might more time to actually understand - More problems / solutions - Time too short for really appreciate the workshop - More hands on - More time. Too pack for one day sessions - More real study case & design calculation. At least half day for case study. - More on problem or trouble facing during design experience - More on material selection design consideration - Good for beginner with no knowledge of PV. Should rename this workshop as Basic Designing - More like this! - Lack of hand on experience and design exercise - Add more exercise for more understanding - Give more examples on design calculation and explanation regarding the design formula - Extend the training period to 2 days due to time constraint to understand the topic - Too short, too rush, too little materials to study and understand how the formulas were derived. Have another session? 4 Any other comment you would like to add. - Wish to request for a soft copy (pdf format) of presentations as some important print outs are not clear - Please inform how we could get a hold of this - Hopefully there would be a following workshop after this - I actually like a real-life examples and worked solution. I hope there would be more worked examples and questions. I would also like to see/do actual installation exercise to have a more hands on experience together with design exercise - The course shall be included the hybrid PV design. More demand on hybrid than grid connected in our country - Detail on inverter sizing, material collection - Product on pv panel and analyzes the type of panel - Updated list of type-approved inverters for Malaysia - If printout is in color form will be better - PV is a bit costly in Malaysia. Can be reduced? - Any chance of conducting similar workshop in Sarawak? - Too technical - The food was great! - Need to have more knowledge/ info on : i. Electrical Installation ii. Material Installation iii. Some basic ideas/ info on mechanical & structured load requirements/ calculations/conditions iv. Post some recommend supplier of solar panels, inverters etc on your website 5 Would you be interested to be certified as a grid-connected PV systems installer?
