ReneSola to showcase key solar modules
Abu Dhabi, January 13, 2013
ReneSola, a leading manufacturer of solar photovoltaic (PV) modules and wafers, will be showcasing its latest innovative solutions at the upcoming World Future Energy Summit (WFES) in Abu Dhabi.
To be held from January 15 to 17 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, WFES will bring together global leaders in policy, technology and business who will discuss and develop new ways of thinking and shape the future of renewable energy.
ReneSola’s participation at WFES 2013 comes at a time when the company has been awarded its first contract in the Middle East, by Taibah University in Madina to provide 15 kilowatts of solar modules for an off-grid power plant project.
The solar modules are expected to arrive in Madinah early this year and will be used to charge the plant’s battery.
Commenting on the contract win, Xianshou Li, the founder and CEO of ReneSola said, "An off-grid solution, particularly one with PV modules powering an energy storage system, can be far more cost-effective than delivering electricity to a small area by conventional means."
"At the same time, a PV solution can typically be completed faster than grid-connected projects, which provides additional incentive for developers to go with an off-grid PV alternative," he stated.
"We believe such off-grid solutions will find a niche in the PV market, particularly in emerging markets like Africa, South America and the Middle East, where we are already seeing demand. With our new presence in Saudi Arabia, we will continue to work to expand our business and bring innovative PV solutions to the region," he added.
ReneSola’s senior VP of wafer technology Zhidong Zheng said, "We believe our modules are well suited for the climates of Saudi and the wider Middle East, particularly our Virtus II modules, which generate high efficiency with very low sensitivity to variations in temperature."
"The minimal degradation of our solar modules results in long life cycles and reliable power output. We are confident they will perform well in Madinah and attract other developers throughout the Middle East," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
