Hanergy Thin Film Power Group, the world’s largest thin-film solar power solution company, has announced plans to accelerate its expansion in Africa.
The firm recently showcased its path-breaking solar-power products, at the 22nd edition of The Solar Show Africa 2019, Africa’s largest and longest running power and electricity show that lasted from March 26th to 27th, 2019.
As part of the two-day exhibition and conference held at Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg, Hanergy showcased a series of its most promising solar solutions, such as HanTile, HanWall, HanBrick, Humbrella, HanPack, HanPaper, Solibro Slide-In mounting system, GSE & MiaSolé Flex modules, presenting solar-powered solutions for industries, and residential individuals.
The show welcomed more than 8,000 attendees and hosted a mecca of solar solution providers spanning 4 halls and thousands of square metres. Amongst 148 exhibitors besides Hanergy, other prominent Chinese players were Trina Solar, Jinko Solar & JA Solar.
Hanergy’s debut at The Solar Show Africa 2019 is a clear indication of company’s massive expansion plans in African continent. Hanergy affirmed that its robust expansion plan in Africa is underway and has already initiated several projects locally.
The company’s participation in this year’s exhibition and conference has been instrumental in exploring significant partnerships with varied national and international companies.
“We’re extremely delighted to have exhibited our revolutionary energy solutions for the first time at The Solar Show Africa 2019 which is undoubtedly one of the Africa’s leading exhibitions for solar industry and its partners,” said Mr. Pan Xiang, Sales Director of Hanergy South Africa.
“Our participation has also ensued unique networking opportunities allowing us to solidify our current relationships and build new ones to expand in Africa market,” he added.
Deemed to be the basis for promising projects, the varied exhibits from Hanergy received unprecedented response, particularly from visitors who expressed their interest in HanTile, a pioneering solar rooftop solution; Solibro’s Slide-In mounting system; GSE & MiaSolé Flex modules.
Africa had 580 million people who were off-the-grid in 2016 and is expected to be home to 80 percent of the world’s off-the-grid population by 2030, according to the International Energy Agency.
With incredible market opportunity that’s not being met by the relatively small handful of companies that are operating on the continent, Hanergy has an opportunity to strengthen its foothold in the country by aiding off-grid African communities to embrace solar energy through collaboration with local government authorities.
Hanergy launched and upgraded handful of consumer products in 2018, including Humbrella, solar-powered umbrella; SolarTank, solar backpack; HanPower, solar power bank, retaining its leading position in mobile energy sector. The company hopes to maintain its momentum in 2019 as well.
