Leading certification body TÜV Nord certifies PV modules ideal for Middle East climate
DUBAI, UAE, April 23, 2013 – ReneSola (NYSE: SOL), a leading global manufacturer of solar photovoltaic (“PV”) modules and wafers, has announced that following its participation at the World Future Energy Summit (WFES) in Abu Dhabi earlier this year, a range of its PV modules have been accredited by TÜV Nord, a leading German industry-certification body.
Dr. Bill Hou, ReneSola’s product director, commented, “We believe our modules are well suited for the climate of the Middle East. Their minimal degradation results in long life cycles and reliable power output. The TÜV Nord certification, which reaffirms that the modules can withstand dusty and desert-like conditions, is a milestone for us. It shows our modules are capable of suiting several special climates, particularly those of emerging economies with communities spread over significant land masses, such as North Africa and the Middle East. Along with our presence in Saudi Arabia, the certification will help us increase our market share and bring innovative PV solutions throughout the region.”
