Yingli Solar Teaming Up With French Module Manufacturer

Yingli Solar is teaming up with an as-yet-unnamed “leading” French PV module manufacturer in order to help the French partner meet the requirements of the national tender program under which its partner won large-volume tenders.

The cobranded products will be produced in France, but will feature high-performance polycrystalline solar cells manufactured by Yingli Solar. The exacts of the deal have yet to be worked out, but will be detailed in subsequent agreements.

The press release provides more:

In the recent rounds of public tenders under French National Tender Program, 17 out of 38 PV developers won projects with modules resulting from the partnership, representing 185 MW out of 380 MW in total, all of which have been approved by the French government. The projects are expected to be installed within the next 24 months.

In addition to the purchase price of electricity to be produced, the French authorities appreciated the low carbon footprint of the projects and their contributions to research and development, innovation and employment in France. The national tender system in France is applied for solar projects with installation capacity above 250 kW. The project developers or owners are required to enter a national solar tendering program, French National Tender Program, held by the Energy Regulation Commission (CRE).

As it stands currently, over 400 MW worth of solar projects have been selected, following a ranking method focused on, amongst other factors, the purchase price of the electricity that is to be produced, the carbon footprint of the project, and its contribution to research and development.

After projects have been ranked by the CRE, the Ministry of Energy in France gives the winning projects the go-ahead to begin construction.
