“Over the past year, we have worked hard to transform our company into a leading global solar brand and technology leader,” said Xianshou Li, ReneSola’s chief executive officer. “With vigorous sales and marketing efforts, we have expanded our module business in several key markets, including the United Kingdom, Germany, France, the United States, Australia, India and Japan.”

ReneSola has also been pushing their R&D with downstream products like AC module and small-scale storage system.

Recently ReneSola announced that TUV Nord, a leading German industry-certification body, has accredited the company’s PV modules as suitable for the Middle East climate.

“Although we are seeing the solar market stabilize, a persistent demand-supply imbalance, coupled with competitive pricing, continues to impact our business and the overall industry. Despite this challenging macro environment, we will continue to invest in technologies that help reduce cost and improve efficiency in order to grow our business and gain new global market share,” Li added.
