Given the present global current of carbon neutrality, energy crisis and cost reduction of PV, Zhou added that global PV industry needs to usher in greater and greener development in the future to depress and offset PV industry's carbon emission growth trend.
As an intelligent manufacturing enterprise focusing on PV cells & PV modules and a national green supply chain enterprise, Astronergy has continuously improved the efficiency of its modules, Zhou said.
All Astronergy modules have adopted large-sized silicon wafers. And thinner silicon wafers, fluorine-free backsheets, lead-free ribbons, and dealcoholized silica gel have been promoted in module production process to achieve win-win economic and ecological benefits and create higher value for customers in a sustainable way.
Giving priority to the use of environmentally friendly materials, and in combination with the strategy of "zero carbon factory", Astronergy is always working to comprehensively reduce the carbon emissions and energy consumption of ASTRO series module products, to serve and help create a better and greener future with environmentally friendly products.
