In addition to securing the award in
Australia, Q CELLS also becomes one of only three module manufacturers to
receive the EuPD seal for seven years running in Europe.
PVTIME - Q CELLS, a renowned total energy solution provider in solar,
energy storage, downstream project business and energy retail, has been
recognised as a leading solar brand in Australia for the fifth year in a row.
As a ‘Top Brand PV’ company, Q CELLS pays
recognition to the recent announcements of the new 25-year product warranties
on Q CELLS’ top selling modules for the Australian market, Q.PEAK DUO-G5+ and
The ‘Top Brand PV’ seal is awarded by
internationally renowned research institute EuPD Research to companies that
receive excellent feedback and ratings in its Global PV InstallerMonitor
survey, which compiles the opinions of participating solar installers located
across a number of leading solar markets.
Q CELLS has also become one of only three
solar brands to be awarded the EuPD Research ‘Top Brand PV’ seal in Europe.
In securing the ‘Top Brand PV 2020’ seal
for modules, Q CELLS was once again ranked highly for its commitment to product
quality and service, built upon a solid brand recognition that has come to
stand for consistency and reliability across 20 years globally in the solar
industry – a decade of which has seen Q CELLS active in the Australian market.
A new decade for raising the bar even higher
The Q CELLS brand is now thriving into its
third decade, and begins the 2020s as it ended the 2010s – intent on steering
solar energy towards even wider mainstream acceptance and importance across the
globe. To achieve this, accolades such as the EuPD Research seal are a vital
component in ensuring and maintaining high standards, transparency and trust
within the industry.
The EuPD Research Global PV
InstallerMonitor surveys more than 100 installers in each nation to impartially
gauge which solar companies – module, inverter, wholesalers and storage –
regularly surpass expectations in terms of service and product performance.
Such a process helps to drive standards higher each year, engendering greater
conviction in solar energy’s ability to provide higher return of investment
with enhanced quality and reliable products.
For Q CELLS, pursuing and securing
excellence in module performance and brand recognition will continue to play a
vital role in the company’s strategy moving forward. Since 2018, Q CELLS has
also pivoted towards becoming a total energy solution provider, and offers both
a flexible storage solution – in the form of its Q.HOME+ ESS AC-G2 AC-coupled
battery – and also the Q.HOME+ ESS HYB-G2, which is a modular system that can
be scaled to meet the specific storage needs of the customer.
Q CELLS has boosted its ESS business with
the launch of its Q.HOME package as the company widens its portfolio of fully
integrated energy solutions that enable homeowners and small businesses to take
complete control of their energy destiny.
Mr. Hee Cheul (Charles) Kim, CEO of Q
CELLS, said: “Australia is a key market for Q CELLS and we are proud to have
received the ‘Top Brand PV’ seal here for five consecutive years, and we will
continue this legacy of reliability, quality and trust into the next decade.
“The 2020s will see a massive evolution in
the way the world generates, consumes and shares energy, and Q CELLS hopes to
play a major role in this transition as we move towards becoming a total
renewable energy solutions provider.
“The winning of this award for module brand
quality is nevertheless a reminder of the excellent standards that Q CELLS
sets, and upholds, in the field of solar module technology. As the company
evolves, expect to see even greater innovation and quality emerging from our
world-class solar cell and module R&D facilities over the coming months and
