French PV module manufacturer KDG Energy has begun the production of China Sunergy’s modules in France. The two companies have entered a memorandum of understanding in 2011, stating that China Sunergy (CSUN) will provide components for solar modules that KDG Energy will manufacture under CSUN’s brand name. KDG Energy officially commenced production of the modules in mid March 2011.


The products are referred to as CSUN Made in France and guarantee that testing, lamination and the string of cells have been conducted in France.
The first of these modules have recently been delivered to Paris-based PV developer and plant operator Akuo Energy.

Mr. Stephen Cai, China Sunergy's CEO commented: "France has always been an important market for us. KDG Energy is well recognized as a high quality, high-tech manufacturer of photovoltaic panels in France. We expect our cooperation with KDG Energy will allow China Sunergy to further develop its business in France and help China Sunergy position itself as a preferred supplier in the entire European market."

    Looking back, 2014 was a year of convalescence for a PV industry still battered and bruised from a period of ferocious competition. End-market demand continued apace, with analysts towards the end of 2014 predicting the year would see between around 45 and 50GW of deployment. That has begun to feed through to the supplier end of the market, with all the main manufacturers announcing capacity expansions in 2015 and further ahead.

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
