Trina Solar Limited: China’s Green and Growing Global Challenger
This entry was posted on September 14, 2012.
This week, the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) released a list of fifty Chinese “Global Challengers”, recognising companies that are rapidly expanding into the global market. Among these fifty prestigious companies was Trina Solar Limited, a photovoltaic solar product manufacturer first established in 1997.
Sustainable.co.za is proud to stock a selection of photovoltaic solar panels from this fast-growing manufacturer.
A History of Excellence
Since the beginning, Trina Solar has focused on producing reliable solar modules combining high performance with low consumption, while still maintaining competitive prices. The company played a role in the development of China’s first Renewable Energy Law in 2004, was listed on the New York Stock Exchange in 2006 and in 2007 was named “fastest growing company” in Deloitte Technology Fast 50 China.
Notable achievements for Trina Solar include the completion of North America’s largest single rooftop (Atlantic City, 2008) and the world’s largest rooftop installation (Italy, 2009). The company is also famed for providing PV cells for the first plane to fly around the world using only sustainable technology in 2008.
Today, Trina Solar is recognised as one of the world’s leading PV manufacturers, with more than 12 offices around the globe, including Sydney, Milan, Tokyo, Zurich and Beijing.
This latest achievement, being named a Global Challenger, illustrates how Trina Solar is going from strength to strength. Mr Jifan Gao, CEO of Trina Solar, said he was “delighted” by the recognition; “But to continue building upon our historical successes,” Mr Gao told press, “we must take the necessary steps to further increase out ability to compete on a global scale.” It doesn’t sound like Trina Solar Limited will be resting on their laurels or slowing their rapid rate of growth anytime soon.
