Hanwha Q CELLS GmbH, the German subsidiary of one of the largest solar cell and module manufacturers in the world, Hanwha Q CELLS Co., Ltd., has received a carbon footprint (CFP) certification of 300 kg-eq/CO²/kWc in France for its high-efficiency Q.PEAK and Q.PEAK DUO module series.
The current certifications mean that Hanwha Q CELLS’s high-efficiency Q.PEAK and Q.PEAK DUO modules continue to meet the stringent low-carbon demands of the French government.
Low-carbon tenders present major opportunity for France
With the latest issue of the PPE (Multi-Annual Energy Program), France’s solar power sector has been set ambitious annual growth targets of up to 44.5 GWp by 2028. Currently, solar capacity in France is just under 9 GW.
In achieving another low carbon footprint result for its Q.PEAK and Q.PEAK DUO modules, Hanwha Q CELLS further strengthens its market position in France, said Hanwha Q CELLS’ Head of EU Sales, Maengyoon Kim. “The entire value chain of Hanwha Q CELLS is committed to clean energy and low-carbon values, which is why we are pleased to be once again recognized in France for our commitment to lowering our carbon footprint. As a global leader in solar cell and module technology, we pride ourselves in setting the best example, and continue to appreciate France’s vision and leadership in this regard, too.”
