Clenergy and CGN Solar Energy formally signed a cooperation agreement to develop solar power in Fujian with the New Energy Industry Alliance (formerly the Haixi New Energy Industry Alliance). This took place at the Alliance's founding ceremony on June 18 with representatives from Fujian government organizations, industrial associations, industry firms and research institutions.
The Xiamen-based Alliance promotes the development of renewable energy in Fujian and serves its members by bringing together cutting-edge technologies, capital and market resources for the new energy industry.
Li Ning, the president of the Alliance and the president of the School of Energy Research at Xiamen University, said that distributed energy generation in Fujian demonstrates huge potential. He called particular attention to offshore wind energy developments and solar energy applications in agriculture and in the public buildings and facilities.
"With the strengths of Clenergy and CGN, both of which are strong in technical expertise and experienced in solar power projects, the tripartite cooperation will boost significantly Fujian's solar energy and industry chain developments," said Mr. Li.
Since Clenergy's establishment in 2007, "making renewable energy accessible and affordable" has been the company's mission statement. The tripartite strategic partnership in conjunction with the advantages of the Alliance will benefit Clenergy’s operations in Fujian and in China.
Clenergy also announced that it plans to build distributed power generation systems totaling from 200MW to 400MW in Fujian in the near future, starting with small and medium scale projects this year.
