Sungrow Joins EP100 Promising Higher Energy Productivity

After RE100, which focused on signing up firms to commit to renewable energy use, the climate group has come out with the EP100, which is focused on energy productivity. And who better to sign up for that other than inverter solution major Sungrow, which has an installed global capacity of almost 225 GW now.

Sungrow, has announced that it has joined the EP100, committing to completing energy management systems’ deployment by 2028 and increasing its energy productivity by over 35% with 2018 as the base year; thus, unlocking deeper energy efficiency gains through investing in energy improvements. Sungrow also recently inaugurated its expanded 10 GW manufacturing facility in India.

EP100 has already brought together over 120 ambitious businesses committed to measuring and reporting on efficiency improvements. Members are driving technological innovation and reducing emissions while making substantial cost savings and improving competitiveness; as a result, inspiring others to follow their lead.

Reducing emissions isn’t just good for the planet, it’s good for the businesses – and as Sungrow is a clean energy conversion technology pioneer puts the company in a great position to make use of renewables wherever it can.

“As a signatory to these initiatives, we endeavor to do ‘more-with-less’ by improving our energy productivity. This is a welcome value-add to an overarching net zero carbon commitment and a must-to-do step to win the race toward a cleaner era,” said Cao Renxian, Chairman of Sungrow.

In addition to joining the EP100 initiative, Sungrow is also a dedicated member of RE100 and pledged to switch its electricity used globally in its manufacturing and operations to 100% renewable energy by 2028.

These voluntary initiatives, seek to provide the dual objective of highlighting efforts made by responsible firms in terms of the environment, but also communicate benchmarks on what can be achieved. To that extent, they do serve a useful purpose for governments as they increasingly seek to set down standards that are backed by law.
