Trina Solar achieves a milestone with 100 GW of photovoltaic module deliveries in 25 years
Trina Solar (www.TrinaSolar.com), the world’s leading supplier of photovoltaic (PV) modules and smart energy solutions, has reached a remarkable milestone, having shipped 100 GW of modules in the 25 years since the company was founded. company in 1997.
With an environmental impact equivalent to planting 7.2 billion trees, collectively the 100 GW of photovoltaic modules can generate approximately 135 billion kWh of clean energy, reducing annual global CO2 emissions by 135 million tonnes and standard coal consumption of 54.54 million tons.
“We are very proud to achieve this significant feat at Trina Solar. Marking 100 GW of shipments marks the beginning of a new energy era where solar PV is the primary driver. As we mark a quarter century , Trina Solar renews its commitment to lead the solar industry in facilitating the conversion to a new carbon-free world,” said Gao Jifan, President of Trina Solar.
Global clean energy development is currently in full swing, and the International Renewable Energy Agency predicts that global photovoltaic installations will exceed 14,000 GW by 2050 as new energies, including solar , will become a major source of energy and electricity consumption. Trina Solar’s high-value 210 technology modules have reached full-cycle maturity, and the ultra-high power modules have been deployed worldwide.
Antonio Jimenez, Vice President and General Manager of Trina Solar Middle East & Africa Region, said: “We are extremely pleased with this significant achievement which comes at a time when we are also celebrating our 25th anniversary. With Dubai as a regional hub for clean energy and energy innovation, we will continue to use open technology innovation to expand opportunities for growth and achieve sustainable development, guiding industry towards the vision of an economy green and carbon free.
As a leading PV company, Trina Solar has pioneered solar technology over the past 25 years as silicon wafer diameters have increased from 125mm to 210mm and module wattages have increased from less from 100W to 690W. In technology and innovation, Trina Solar has set a total of 23 world records for PV cell conversion efficiency and module power output.
Based on its excellent product performance, Trina Solar is the only PV company to score 100% in the Bloomberg New Energy Finance Bankability Survey for six consecutive years as the top bankable module supplier. The company has also achieved excellent test results in the PVEL (PV Evolution Labs) product qualification program for seven consecutive years. Trina Solar’s 100 GW of photovoltaic modules have been shipped to more than 100 countries.
Photovoltaic power generation is a major source of clean energy deployed in many areas, from utility projects to household rooftops around the world.
Inspired by the signing of the Kyoto Protocol in 1997, Trina Solar was founded that year with its headquarters in the Chinese city of Changzhou, making it one of the world’s first photovoltaic (PV) companies.
