With cumulative installations of 6.5GW over the past three quarters, Japan remains one of the key markets for us, and the share of solar in the energy mix for the country is expected to further increase.

“We will carry on executing our growth strategies in the residential, mega solar and commercial segments while further diversifying our client base to expand our footprint in Japan's solar market.”
