PVTIME - LONGi, global leading solar technology company, announces that it has recently joined the Italian PV business association ITALIA SOLARE, the national and international benchmark for sustainable development and energy independence based on the use of clean energy sources.
ITALIA SOLARE has
been working since 2015 to stimulate the transition towards an energy model
based on the production, storage, management and distribution of energy through
distributed generation from renewable sources, in particular, solar PV. It also
promotes their integration with smart grids, e-mobility and energy efficiency
technologies to increase the energy performance of buildings.
By joining this
association, LONGi seeks to consolidate its presence in the Italian PV market
which, according to data contained in the SolarPower Europe report EU Market
Outlook for Solar Power 2019-2023, passed the 20 GW installed mark at the
end of 2019, to account for around 16% of the EU’s total installed PV capacity.
Furthermore, the country’s Integrated Energy and Climate Plan, submitted to
Brussels by the Italian government last January, contains a target of 52 GW to
LONGi will help
achieve these objectives, thanks to its high quality products, financial
strength and large production capacity. LONGi will close 2020 with 30 GW of
manufacturing capacity of high efficiency monocrystalline modules. In terms of
cells and modules, LONGi has achieved continuous technological
breakthroughs.The product conversion efficiency has been increasing
consistently to reach a world record of 22.38%; and large-scale mass production
technical solutions have been continuously helping in increasing output and
improving product performance.
delighted to have joined ITALIA SOLARE as we will be working together to
promote a smarter and more sustainable energy model. PV has managed to
demonstrate that it is also competitive even without incentives, in addition to
being the most representative source of distributed generation. Every

“At LONGi we are
ready to offer our clients – both in utility and rooftop business – the best
value with our high efficiency monocrystalline technology so their projects can
achieve optimum performance at the most competitive price. Our module offering has helped satisfy the
market demand for more efficient products, ensuring a continuous reduction in
BOS costs and an improved LCOE”, concludes Emmolo.
