LONGi to Supply 600 MW Modules for JV With Engie

Xi’an-headquartered major solar PV manufacturer LONGi recently announced the signing of a framework agreement with Engie Solar (Engie Group), a French multinational electric utility company. To kickstart the process, 600 MW of the Chinese manufacturer’s high efficiency PV modules have been committed for projects in several geographies.

Dennis She, Senior Vice President of LONGi Solar, commented, “LONGi always aims to provide our clients with the highest quality and most competitive solar products, to fulfil our commitment to delivering clean and sustainable energy (or solar power) around the world. We believe that through a stronger collaboration with Engie, LONGi would further reinforce its presence in global markets and offer more opportunities to accelerate the global energy transition.”

Both LONGi and Engie have been making headlines in the past few months due to new RE projects unveiled recently. In March this year, LONGi incorporated a business unit to explore green hydrogen production on account of the latter’s increasing influence in the clean energy market. A month prior, the company launched its new 66C type Hi-MO 4 monofacial PV module (Hi-MO 4m) for the global distributed generation (DG) market. With an area of about 2 m2, weight of 22kg and power of 410-420W, the new module can be widely used on rooftops in residential, industrial and commercial applications.

Speaking of the current partnership, Charlotte Roule, Engie China CEO, said, “Engie has invested and developed many projects in the French PV market. In the future, we will work together with LONGi, a trusted and valuable partner, to solidify carbon emissions, so as to build a carbon-negative world.” She holds a baccalaureate of Mathematics & physics, a License degree in Law, Master degree in Business & Tax law and Economics & Finance in IEP Paris.

Engie recently presented a comprehensive plan at the Presidential Palace of Chile for its operations in the country, including the development of 2 GW of renewable energy capacity and the end of its 1.5 GW of coal-fired power generation activities by 2025, both of which are part of the firm’s ambition to achieve carbon neutrality latest by 2050. The French energy major also revealed in March this year that Edelweiss Infrastructure Yield Plus (EIYP), an alternative investment fund by Edelweiss Alternative Asset Advisors, had acquired a 74 per cent stake in its solar portfolio in India.
