Company celebrates Silver Anniversary
Trina Solar, the global leading provider for photovoltaic (PV) module and smart energy solutions, has reached a remarkable milestone, having shipped 100GW of modules in the 25 years since the company was founded in 1997.
With an environmental impact equivalent to planting 7.2bn trees, collectively, the 100GW of PV modules can generate about 135 billion kWh of clean-energy power, reducing annual global CO2 emissions by 135 million tons, and standard coal consumption by 54.54mn tons.
“Marking the 100GW of shipments is the beginning of a new energy era where solar PV is the main driving force. As we mark a quarter of a century, Trina Solar renews its commitment to lead the solar industry in facilitating the conversion to a carbon-free new world,” remarked Gao Jifan, Chairman, Trina Solar.
Global clean energy development is now running at full speed, and the International Renewable Energy Agency forecasts that global PV installations will exceed 14,000GW by 2050 as new energy, including solar energy, becomes a major source of energy and electricity consumption.
“With Dubai as the regional hub for clean energy and energy innovation, we will continue to use open technology innovation to enlarge the scope for growth and achieve sustainable development, leading the industry towards the vision of a green and carbon-free economy,” commented Antonio Jimenez, Vice President and Managing Director, Trina Solar Middle East & Africa Region.
As a leading PV company, Trina Solar has been pioneering solar technology for the past 25 years, as the diameter of silicon wafers has grown from 125mm to 210mm, and module power has grown from less than 100W to 690W.
