Solar cells and modules manufacturer LONGi Green Energy Technology has announced an 8-year roadmap to achieve 100 per cent renewable energy (RE) use for its global operations by 2028.

The company has made the announcement of the launched of RE100 China Initiative at the 14th SNEC PV Power EXPO in Shanghai.

As per the roadmap, LONGi will achieve 70 per cent renewable electricity use by 2027 and ultimately reach 100 per cent for its global operations by 2028. Last year, the company consumed 189,243,000 kWh of electricity globally, with 47.14 per cent of which came from renewable sources.

Commenting on the development, Zhong Baoshen, Chairman of LONGi Group, said “we are proud to announce our RE100 roadmap for 100 per cent renewable energy use. LONGi Group, as a global company dedicated to solar technology and manufacturing, will work closely with The Climate Group and our partners to deliver this green commitment. We hope to shoulder more responsibilities for global energy transition.”

During the next 8 years, the photovoltaic (PV) products manufacturer will follow a 5-stage roadmap, including solid actions like improving energy use efficiency among its factories in and outside China, building new factories that have access to green electricity, building more PV power stations for self-use, and prioritizing green electricity use and influencing stakeholders, the company said in a statement.

“Through this process, LONGi can fully influence our supply chain partners and our customers by delivering the RE100 initiative. LONGi will play by example to promote more industries to focus on clean energy, and LONGi is happy to provide technology solutions and support for those who have the same ambition,” commented Li Zhenguo, founder and president of LONGi Group.

Earlier in March this year, the company has joined the RE100 initiative, a global corporate leadership initiative led by The Climate Group in partnership with Carbon Disclosure Project. The RE100 initiative brings together influential businesses committed to 100 per cent renewable electricity.
