Winning the Japanese market with high-efficiency mono products, LONGi’s shipment in Japan may exceed 400MW in 2019

As a global leading solar technology company, LONGi exhibited its leading technical strength and high-efficiency product advantages at 2019 PV-EXPO Tokyo to meet the differentiated demands of the Japanese market, and win lavish praise from partners and customers with ”high-efficiency mono PERC and lower LCOE”.

The Japanese photovoltaic market is relatively mature, with high customer requirements on product quality and service. In recent years, with accelerated de-subsidizing, the Japanese photovoltaic market has increasingly higher requirements on system’s cost and module’s yield, hence increasingly higher demand for the products and solutions with lower LCOE.

LONGi’s Hi-MO3 bifacial half-cell modules received special attention at the PV-EXPO. The next-generation Hi-MO3 products oriented to “high power, high energy yield, lower hot spot effect, lower LCOE” have further improved the efficiency and performance of photovoltaic modules, and accelerated the decline of LCOE, becoming the ideal choice for the Japanese photovoltaic market, especially the distributed rooftop projects.

“We have always believed that lower LCOE is fundamental to the development of the photovoltaic market, and what LONGi has been doing is constantly promoting cost reduction and efficiency improvement. The Japanese market is so important that LONGi has positioned it as a strategic market. In order to achieve long-term development, it’s necessary to bring more value gains to customers with better products.” said Tang Xuhui, vice president of LONGi Solar.


With R&D and production advantages in the monocrystalline PERC technology, LONGi has brought better solutions to address the high custom demands of the Japanese photovoltaic market with constantly innovated products and technologies, including product solutions for 10KW-50KW, 50KW-500KW and 500KW+ projects, to meet the needs of the Japanese market with high-power, high-yield and high-reliability products.

With the growing publicity of monocrystalline PERC products in the Japanese market, LONGi’s technology development route and global strategic strategy have received growing attention from Japanese local media, customers and partners.

Qin Chao, director of LONGi Solar Japan, said: “since the establishment of LONGi Japan more than two years ago, our brand, products and services have earned recognition and support from Japanese customers and partners. LONGi shipped more than 200MW to the Japanese market in 2018, and is targeting more than 400MW for 2019. At present, LONGi is expanding and developing in a large scale in Japan; in the future, we will create greater investment value for our customers with more efficient products and more reliable technologies.”
