GCL Strengthens Solar Projects Within ‘Belt and Road’ Countries

At the 2018 International Forum on Energy Transitions  in Suzhou, China,  Zhu Gongshan, Chairman of GCL Group  and Luo Xin, President of GCL System Integration Technology Co., LTD. offered an update on the Group’s growth and expansion in companies that fall within China’s “Belt and Road” Initiative (BRI).

GCL-SI saw a sales surge in the first half of this year, with sales of its modules climbing from last year’s 14% to 45.8%, and its global market share reaching nearly 5%. Both affirmed that GCL Group would strengthen its global production strategy and expand its sales channels to increase its proportion of overseas sales.

China is the world’s largest manufacturer of green energy equipment, such as photovoltaics and wind power facilities,” said Zhu. “The BRI is the most important oil and gas resource distribution area in the world, and Chinese energy companies are actively embracing and building a mutual and large-scale platform, boosting overseas oil and gas resources and China’s new energy power to be widely integrated on a global scale and accelerate the energy revolution. GCL Group aims to be a big part of this evolution.”

According to Luo, GCL-SI is poised to build a comprehensive industrial ecosystem, incorporating “three platforms and one system,’ which adopts the ‘PV plus model.’ For example, we aim to improve the multi-dimensional business model, such as the integration of photovoltaics and energy storage, supply chain financing, and operation and maintenance services, among others, to create greater value for our customers.”

GCL Group will firmly implement the ‘photovoltaic internationalization’ strategy, strengthen the company’s arrangement in global production and sales channels, and increase the proportion of overseas sales. In the future, scientific and technological progress will further boost photovoltaic power’s generating efficiency at a lower cost, while the market as a whole will strive to achieve grid parity and to develop Polycrystalline and Monocrystalline technology simultaneously,” Zhu Gongshan said.
