From imagination to reality

Imagine a future powered by the sun. Your car powered by solar cells built into the surface of the road, smaller energy bills and public amenities that are lit at night without cost to the taxpayer. Hanwha believes in a future where clean, sustainable energy from the sun is harnessed for commercial, civil and consumer applications.

Through Hanwha's investment in tomorrow's technologies today, we've positioned ourselves at the forefront of the global photovoltaics industry. Our customers, partners as well as communities can rely on us to stay there – not just imaging a brighter future, but working together to create it.


What makes solar energy perceived as “sustainable?” Is it maybe its unlimited availability on the earth? Or its costless accessibility for anybody and everybody?

Hanwha’s concept on sustainability goes a step further. With solar energy, we can revive abandoned land, restore local communities and increase the value of unused land, thereby making our society sustainable.

That is how Hanwha utilizes the sustainable solar energy for the sustainability of the mankind: to make the world a better place to live by providing the most reliable energy source while presenting viable solutions to climate change, energy depletion and energy poverty.
