Leading integrated high-efficiency monocrystalline module manufacturer and ‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member LONGi Green Energy Technology has secured a large PV module supply deal with a major PV power plant developer in the US.
LONGi said the sales contract was valued at around US$600 million and the supply of its high-efficiency P-type monocrystalline modules would start in 2019 and go through to 2022.
This is believed to be the single largest module supply contract LONGi has signed with a US project developer and the first major contract publically announced since the Section 201 trade case decision that was not from a PV manufacturer that had announced plans to assembly PV modules in the US.
LONGi Group’s PV manufacturing operations are primarily in China but also has a manufacturing facility in Malaysia and is investing in a manufacturing plant in India.
Solar Media’s Energy Storage Summit Americas has arrived in Fort Lauderdale to provide a platform for this next step in renewable energy industry. The energy storage market and development brings as many challenges as it does advancements, with a myriad of technologies, capacities, functions, and lifespans. With most projects still in development and technologies with sparse track records, knowledge in this fledgling industry is invaluable. Investors, utilities, consumers, and all renewable energy participants have to not only understand the market, but be able comfortable enough to make the right investment in energy storage to not be left behind the curve. Our event is the platform for companies to bridge the gap between “future energy storage plans” and “installed energy storage”. Join us to discuss the latest news on standardization, comparing battery technologies, financing projects in different markets, resilient microgrids, and storage use for emergency response and aid, among many others. We will not only to educate and familiarize attendees on the capabilities and benefits of energy storage, but make the connections, and introductions, to accelerate energy storage development in North, Central, and South America.
