Yingli Green Energy said that preliminary financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2012 were better than expected, due to strong demand.

The company said that it expected PV module shipments in the fourth quarter of 2012 to increase by approximately 40% from the third quarter, significantly higher than its previous guidance of a low teen percentage increase from the third quarter of 2012.

As a result, full year 2012 PV module shipment are expected to reach approximately 2.3GW, significantly higher than the previous guidance of 2.1- 2.2 GW.

However, Yingli Green warned that it would be recognising a non-cash charge of inventory provision and be negatively impacted by a depreciation expense related to underutilised capacity.

As a result, Yingli Green expects its gross margin in the fourth quarter to be in the range of negative 8- 8.5%.

    Now that the PV industry has unquestionably entered a new growth phase, all eyes are on which technologies will win through into the mainstream of PV manufacturing. PERC, n-type, p-type bifacial, heterojunction – all have become familiar terms in the ever-growing constellation of solar cell technologies. The question is which will offer manufacturers what they are looking for in improving efficiencies and cutting costs.

    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.
