ENN Solar Boosts Investment in Solar Energy

At the 2011 SNEC, ENN Solar Energy, a China-based manufacturer of an array of innovative solar technologies and services, announced continued extensive investment in European and American solar power plant projects. Currently, the company operates the world’s most advanced automated production line for the manufacture of tandem junction silicon thin-film solar modules, with a leading 9% total area conversion efficiency. In the future, ENN Solar Energy aims to enhance all-round cooperation with local project integrators, developers, and EPC providers to advance solar energy solutions and seek opportunities for solar projects.

The company continues to push the boundaries of solar energy with its cutting-edge thin-film technology and innovative project development. In 2010, ENN Solar Energy oversaw the technical planning, development, and construction of a 3.2MW solar power plant in Mastershausen, Germany, using thin film modules fully produced by ENN Solar Energy. The Mastershausen PV plant began feeding the power grid in late 2010. The company also completed Phase I 1.17 of a 10MW rooftop plant in Italy. These and similar milestones demonstrate an integration of solar power services, from production, project development, to long-term maintenance and delivery.

According to Dr. De-ling Zhou, COO of ENN Solar Energy: "ENN will continue to invest in power plants in Europe, America, and other overseas markets. Our mastery of technology and development of a unique business model provide a strong base for further overseas partnerships. We are eagerly looking for new projects, and pushing forth a revolution in new power."

At the 2011 SNEC, ENN Solar Energy exhibited their core product: 540W 5.7 square meter tandem junction silicon thin film modules, with a total area conversion efficiency of 9%. Additionally, their PV buildings, PV thermal system, and large-scale solar farms accomplished integrated service, which ranges from production, development, engineering, installation, long-term maintenance, delivery, and financing. As Dr. Zhou commented: "PV buildings are a source of renewable energy in the future, and allow us to develop greener cities. At the same time, the PV thermal system and mini AC grid-connected system can meet the needs of small and medium-sized enterprises, families, and those in high-temperature regions like the desert."

ENN Solar Energy also disclosed at the conference that a 5MW thin-film project has already begun on a landfill in New Jersey, with completion expected in mid-2011. The project will be one of the largest grid-connected plants using thin-film solar modules, and has already received purchasing commitments from a renowned energy supplier in the United States.

Dr. Zhou adds: "In 2010, ENN Solar Energy had achieved its goal of expanding to Europe, North America, the Middle East, and North Africa. ENN possesses clear strengths in terms of integrated services, technology and service teams, and project experience. With time, and growing competition in the solar energy sector, ENN Solar Energy plans to emphasize service, expanding overseas power plants investment, and increasing partnerships on various stages of the solar project."
