Chinese solar manufacturer Risen Energy is to supply modules to energy giant Sinopec’s green hydrogen demonstration project in Xinjiang, China, which is claimed to be the world’s largest PV-based hydrogen production centre.

Risen will supply its mono-PERC TITAN 650W PV modules to the facility, which is to have a capacity of 361MW, after winning a tender process.

Risen was one of four companies considered to supply PV modules, as Sinopec was looking for a power output of 650W+ for its PV-based hydrogen production, and Risen’s 210mm solar modules were chosen over others.

“Large-size PV modules are designed to increase power output and efficiency as a way to reduce the cost and maximize the effectiveness of PV products, delivering additional power generation benefits to customers,” an executive at Risen Energy said.

Early in January 2022, ‘Solar Module Super League’ (SMSL) member Risen unveiled a RMB44.6 billion (US$7 billion) manufacturing capacity expansion plan spanning n-type polysilicon ingots, modules and renewables projects.

Risen Energy was one of the top 10 modules supplier in 2021, ranking sixth in terms of modules shipped.

In April 2021, Sinopec signed a strategic cooperation agreement with SMSL member LONGi in green hydrogen development, which fell in Sinopec’s strategy to diversify from its core business of oil refining, gas and petrochemical provision.

FREE WEBINAR -This special webinar will take a deep dive into the latest PV ModuleTech Bankability Ratings pyramid, capturing the relative bankability status of the top 70-80 PV module suppliers globally. In addition to revealing the latest ranking of global PV module suppliers, PV Tech’s Head of Research, Finlay Colville, will show the depth of analysis and commentary included within the report for module suppliers. A key output from the webinar will be to learn which PV module suppliers have moved up the rankings pyramid in recent years and why this growth has been achieved. Conversely, some of the companies that have fallen down the rankings will be discussed, in particular those suffering from market-share losses and financial problems.

PV Tech has been running an annual PV CellTech Conference since 2016. PV CellTech USA, on 8-9 October 2024 is our second PV CellTech conference dedicated to the U.S. manufacturing sector. The event in 2023 was a sell out success and 2024 will once again gather the key stakeholders from PV manufacturing, equipment/materials, policy-making and strategy, capital equipment investment and all interested downstream channels and third-party entities. The goal is simple: to map out PV manufacturing in the U.S. out to 2030 and beyond.
