LONGi Solar, the world’s leading solar technology company, and KENO, Poland’s leading renewable energy wholesaler, have entered into an agreement for the supply of photovoltaic modules with a total capacity of nearly 400 MW. The partnership between KENO and LONGi dates back to 2018, and 2022 is seeing the extension of their framework agreement by 100 MW compared to 2021. This new agreement will enable KENO to reliably serve the fast-growing Polish solar market.
According to a study published by the Polish Renewable Energy Institute, KENO had a market share of over 50 percent of the Polish PV market in 2021, with more than 830 MW worth of solar modules sold. The high quality of LONGi modules has played a significant role in reaching this position.
Partnership to accelerate the energy transition
Together, KENO and LONGi are working towards accelerating the transformation of the energy sector to using clean energy. Their joint efforts include the “Full of Energy” campaign, which highlights the benefits of combining photovoltaics and electric mobility.
At the annual KENO Expo, a hybrid industry event that takes place both online and offline and has become one of the largest industry conferences of its kind in Poland, KENO and LONGi also regularly present new products and interesting facts about photovoltaics.
Stable supplier relationships in difficult times
Like many industries, the photovoltaic sector has had to deal with supply chain difficulties in recent years. LONGi has proven to be a reliable partner for KENO during this time. Thanks to the intensive cooperation between the two companies, installers in Poland can continue to count on modules from LONGi for years to come. “We have faced many challenges in the last year. Thankfully, we were able to remain stable and even grow compared to the previous year,” adds Tomasz Marona, Business Development Director at KENO.
Founded in 2000, LONGi is committed to being the world’s leading solar technology company, focusing on customer-driven value creation for full scenario energy transformation.
Under its mission of 'making the best of solar energy to build a green world', LONGi has dedicated itself to technology innovation and established five business sectors, covering mono silicon wafers cells and modules, commercial & industrial distributed solar solutions, green energy solutions and hydrogen equipment. The company has honed its capabilities to provide green energy and has more recently, also embraced green hydrogen products and solutions to support global zero carbon development. www.longi.com
