Among the various renewable energies, solar photovoltaic (PV) has emerged as most popular energy source because of its rapid technological maturation, leading to the sharp decline in its generation cost. However, in past decades, solar PV systems have largely been inducted off-grid for decentralized use, and extensively used by spacecraft & satellites. With the minimum low tariffs, the PV power installations have been great success today, making mark beyond expectations; but PV manufacturing is yet to achieve critical stack.
Addressing this is ReneSola – a leading international manufacturer of Solar PV Module and supplier of high-efficiency Polycrystalline and Mono PERC Solar PV Modules. As a vertically-integrated solar manufacturer, the company bestows a wide array of green energy products to customers ranging from residential user to a very large solar developer across the globe. Since inception, ReneSola has furnished over 20GW of SPV modules globally.

Enlighten us on the future blueprint of ReneSola along with its upcoming innovations.
Foreseeing the shift of solar market from Standard Poly technology to Mono PERC Modules, we have enhanced the production of Mono PERC modules and will be following the same trend in 2020 & beyond. Meanwhile, we are also working on some innovative products for Indian market which will help developers to save a significant amount on the BOS part.
The Indian government aims to achieve the 100GW of Solar PV by 2022 and has set various policies to achieve the same. To support the government’s Make in India mission, we are in the process of establishing the Solar PV Cell & Module manufacturing facility in the country and aim to acquire at least 10 percent of the market share of set target. We are planning around 1000MW supply in Indian market in 2020 and are quite confident that the Indian Solar industry will achieve the set target with the help of favorable policies. India is and always has been an important market for ReneSola.
