Hanwha Q CELLS promoted its products and services in the largest booth ever constructed at the Shanghai New Energy Conference

Hanwha Q CELLS demonstrated its commitment to the Chinese solar market at the 12th annual Shanghai New Energy Conference (SNEC), held in the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, from May 28 to May 30. SNEC is regarded as one of the world’s Big Four solar exhibitions with around 1,800 companies and 220,000 visitors last year.

This year, Hanwha Q CELLS held the largest booth it has ever constructed for SNEC, to launch its Q.PEAK-G5 solar module and also to introduce its new partners program, Q.PARTNERS. Over the three days of conference, potential customers and partners gathered to its booth to see Hanwha Q CELLS’ latest product offering.

An Ideal Solution for Real, Severe Conditions

The Q.PEAK-G5 solar module is the latest Hanwha Q CELLS product available on the Chinese market. Comprising monocrystalline solar cells that use the company’s proprietary Q.ANTUM cell technology, the module is an ideal solution for residential buildings. The 60-cell Q.PEAK-G5 is capable of producing up to 310Wp while the 72-cell Q.PEAK L-G5 can produce up to 370Wp.

The module also incorporates Anti-PID technology, Hot-Spot Protect, Traceable Quality Tra.Q™, and Anti-LID technology to maximize power generation. The world-record cell design was developed to achieve the best performance under real conditions – even with low radiation intensity and on clear, hot summer days.

Solidifying Market Leadership in China

Hanwha Q CELLS also announced its intention to expand its network of Chinese partner companies through its Q.PARTNERS program. First launched in China in 2017, Q.PARTNERS provides cooperative services such as product training and marketing materials provision for local Q CELLS partner companies. Hanwha Q CELLS currently has over 600 partner companies in Europe and over 800 partner companies in Japan.

In addition to the exhibition booth, Hanwha Q CELLS also attended the SNEC Conference, which was an opportunity for Hanwha Q CELLS to promote its advanced technology and solidify its position as the world’s leading solar energy brand. Hanwha Q CELLS (Qidong) Co., Ltd. Module Development Team Leader, Liu Zhenyang, delivered a lecture on Q.ANTUM technology and solar module testing at the Kerry Hotel Pudong on May 29.

“China is one of our main production bases as well as the world’s largest solar market,” says Hanwha Q CELLS CEO Sungwoo Nam, adding: “We plan to use our advanced technology and production capabilities to firmly position ourselves in the Chinese market and lead the rapidly growing global solar market.”
