LONGi, founded in 2000, is a world leading solar technology organization. The company has had a long-term, unswerving commitment to monocrystalline technology, convinced, rightly, that its general adoption would bring about significant technological change for the whole PV industry.

With 15 manufacturing bases and more than 30 branches around the world, LONGi produces monocrystalline silicon wafers and modules, delivering solutions for distributed and ground mount power station systems, promoting the development of the global PV industry and driving energy transformation. The company’s shipments have been among the industry’s highest for a number of years and, in 2020, it became the first manufacturer to ship more than 20GW of modules in a year.

LONGi’s ongoing high investment in R&D is a significant contributory factor in its success and the company has been rapidly applying new technologies and processes to large-scale production, making important advances in cost control and efficient product innovation.

In 2020, LONGi became the first Chinese solar energy company to join the RE100, EV100, EP100 and SBTi initiatives, set up to promote zero-carbon solar and sustainable development.

RatedPower is on a mission to digitalize the renewable energy industry and maximize clean energy’s potential through cloud-based solutions.

Through pvDesign—their software to automate and optimize the study, analysis, design, and engineering of photovoltaic plants in all its stages—RatedPower helps companies optimize the design and engineering of utility-scale solar PV plants, maximize their profitability, and reduce energy costs (LCOE). The software has reportedly reduced by 5% the LCOE of solar plants designed with it, which translates to a 20% higher solar plant profitability.

pvDesign optimizes the design and carries out the engineering of utility-scale solar photovoltaic plants, reducing 85% of the time spent in designing PV, from 4-6 weeks to under 2 minutes.

Having developed more than 43 GW in more than 190 countries, pvDesign brings value to developers, IPPs, contractors, investors, and manufacturers, helping them make better decisions, democratizing engineering knowledge and boosting the deployment of solar plants worldwide.
