‘Solar Module Super League’ (SMSL) member LONGi Solar has signed a framework sales agreement with India's Adani Green Energy to supply up to 1,200MW of its high-performance p-Type monocrystalline modules through 2020.
The framework sales agreement ranges from a minimum of 500MW through to 1,200MW of PV module supply, which would have accounted for around 20% of LONGi Solar’s annual external module sales in 2018.
Adani Green Energy has around 475MW under of PV projects under development in India with plans to develop more than 5,290MW through 2021 and a total self-development pipeline of over 9GW.
The company has adopted both a module technology and supplier base agnostic approach to projects, although typically selects leading PV module suppliers such as SMSL members JinkoSolar, Q CELLS, Trina Solar, Canadain Solar and GCL SI.
The PV IndiaTech 2020 conference will continue to bring together all key domestic and overseas stakeholders, including government bodies, investors, and the leading companies today from manufacturing to O&M and asset management. To thrive globally as a major PV power beyond 2020, India has to succeed in unlocking its potential both to manufacture and to lay claim to quality utility-scale solar farms that are providing high returns on investment to site owners.
PV CellTech 2020 features invited presentations from CTOs from the leading multi-GW cell producers to the industry today, providing a full understanding of high-efficiency capex plans for 2020-2023, migration plans to n-type cell structures, plans to implement larger wafer formats, and what the 10-GW cell fabs of the future will look like.
