Leading monocrystalline wafer producer, LONGi Green Energy Technology has guided a surge in net profits expected for 2019, due to increased manufacturing scale lowering production costs and with significant growth in overseas market demand for its PV module subsidiary, LONGi Solar.
LONGi said that it expected to report full-year 2019 net profit in the range of RMB 5.0 billion to RMB 5.3 billion) (US$728.1 million to US$771.8 million), compared to a net profit of RMB 2.55 billion in 2018. This translates to a year-on-year increase of 95.47% to 107.19%.

The company noted that the global PV industry had continued to develop steadily, with significant growth in overseas markets in 2019 with grid parity rapidly advancing in multiple countries.
Major manufacturing expansions of mono ingot/wafer capacity as well as solar cells and modules enabled a higher price-performance ratio in terms of power cost that had driven mono products market share to increase rapidly during the reporting period, according to the company.
LONGi had previously reported third quarter and first nine months 2019 net profit of approximately RMB 1.47 billion (US$214 million) and approximately RMB 3.48 billion (US$506.7 million), respectively.

The 6th Annual Solar & Storage Finance Asia conference will bring together policy makers, developers, financers and investors from across the region to discuss how we mobilise investment in tomorrow’s projects and overcome some of the challenges slowing us down. Don’t miss out, join the conversation and help us in our goal of driving forward large-scale renewable Solar & Storage projects across Asia.
The first ever event dedicated specifically to solar PV Heterojunction manufacturing and multi-GW production challenges and opportunities. Meet the global community driving Heterojunction to multi-GW status in mass production today in the spectacular setting of St. Petersburg in Russia.
The Utility Solar Summit UK will focus entirely on the opportunities in the UK ground-mount space and feature the new technology and advanced innovations allowing asset owners to improve yield in a subsidy free market. Listen to senior market leaders share stories of their successes and manufacturers pushing the envelope for solar PV whilst taking advantage of our enhanced networking features to connect you with your peers onsite; realising the potential of UK utility scale deployment from 2020 and beyond.
Going into its fifth year over 200 delegates from 150 companies and 20 countries representing the PV supply chain will gather in Malaysia to discuss the technology roadmaps for PV cell advancement in GW markets. The scope of the event has been expanded this year, to cover developments in wafer supply and thin-film investments and technologies alongside all the regular benefits to all stakeholders tracking PV technology and investment trends for the next 5 years.
Understand fully the technical and logistical supply chains that determine the production and performance of solar modules, including all related factors impacting quality, reliability & bankability.
