‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member Hanwha Q CELLS said it had become eligible to participate in solar tenders in France after Certisolis had certified its PV modules had met low carbon footprint metrics and fulfilled all criteria for CRE3 and CRE4 tenders in the country. 

To receive the certificate, Hanwha Q CELLS modules were tested along the entire life-cycle, according to the criteria established by the French Energy Regulation Commission (CRE).

Maengyoon Kim, Head of EU Sales commented: “The Certisolis certificate makes Q CELLS a favorable choice for project developers and EPC´s in France. For tenders, they can now benefit from excellent performance and quality ‘Engineered in Germany', strong bankability and a very low carbon footprint.”

Hanwha Q CELLS follows US-headquartered SunPower and Norway-headquartered REC Group and Trina Solar in gaining the low carbon footprint certification. 

Hanwha Q CELLS has cell and module manufacturing operations in Korea, Malaysia and China, while SunPower produces solar cells in the Philippines and Malaysia and module assembly operations in Mexico and France. REC Group has sister companies producing polysilicon and ingot/wafers in Norway and its integrated wafer to module operations are located in Singapore. 

Hanwha Q CELLS and REC Group have recently introduced new high-efficiency modules to the European market.
