Solis helps Beijing achieve first “carbon-neutral” winter Olympics

By Ginlong Technologies

With the Beijing 2022 winter Olympic Games already in full swing, the newly completed Olympic venues and supporting facilities have been unveiled. 

Among them, the mountain press centre in the Yanqing competition zone looks particularly impressive. This area will stage all the alpine skiing events as well as bobsleigh, luge and skeleton.

The centre is equipped with Solis 70kW inverters, installed by Ningbo’s Lightyear Solar Energy Technology Development company, using black monocrystalline silicon double glass modules integrated into the building’s roof and featuring 64 square skylights over the media hall. Combined with the inclination of the skylights, the design has enabled the building’s dual function of lighting and solar power generation.  Excess power is sold back to the local grid network. 

The installed capacity of the project is 128kW, with an annual power generation of 140,000 kWh. The green energy generated by the solar roof can offset around 90 tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year.

Integrating modern architectural design and realizing the innovative application of solar power generation, this project has become a green energy hub at the Yanqing competition zone and is contributing to China’s efforts to host a green Olympics. 

Solis continues to focus on key technical problems in distributed solar power projects,  speeding up innovation and upgrading of products, with the objective of making more and more application scenarios a reality to boost high-quality urban development and enable distributed solar to reach new heights.
