On Wednesday the company launched its TrinaPro utility-scale solution that includes hardware, software, EPC and O&M services. Both announcements coincide with the celebration of the company’s 20th anniversary.

Trina’s CEO Jifan Gao said the company’s first stage was to make PV affordable but the new era was about smart generation, low carbon and “transforming our energy behaviour”.

Also unveiled was the six-pronged cloud business Trina Aurora. Aurora will incorporate six clouds, namely PV, storage, charging, O&M, energy efficiency and electricity sales.

Trina is working with a number of partners on the new business including IBM, Accenture, Huawei and Siemens.
