South Africa - Hanergy Thin Film Power Group, the world's largest thin-film solar power solution company, showcased its path-breaking solar-power products, at the 22nd edition of The Solar Show Africa 2019.
Held at Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg, from March 26-27th, The Solar Show Africa, is Africa’s largest and longest running power and electricity conference and exhibition event.
This was the first time that Hanergy has exhibited at The Solar Show Africa 2019. The company already has a number of projects running in various African countries.
The company says its participation in this year’s exhibition and conference allowed it to explore a variety of partnerships.
This year’s Solar Show Africa saw Hanergy showcasing 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.
“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. We believe, not only has the prestigious exhibition and conference presented Hanergy with a platform to showcase our promising solar solutions for the African market, but our participation has also ensured unique networking opportunities allowing us to solidify our current relationships and build new ones to expand in the African market,” said Mr Pan Xiang, Sales Director of Hanergy South Africa.
“We have explored multiple partnerships with a number of national and international companies. Hopefully, we’ll soon be able to announce the partnerships with number of companies in days to come,” he added.
Most visitors to Hanergy’s booth at the Solar Show Africa expressed a lot of interest in HanTile, a pioneering solar rooftop solution.
With the International Energy Agency estimating that 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, Hanergy hopes to strengthen its foothold on the continent by aiding off-grid communities to embrace solar energy through collaboration with local government authorities.
Other notable Chinese exhibiters at the Solar Show Africa which attracted over 8000 visitors included Trina Solar, Jinko Solar & JA Solar.
