BEIJING, Nov. 22, 2017 — Multinational mass media and information firm Thomson Reuters published its “Top 100 Global Energy Leaders” list on November 14, 2017, naming Hanergy Thin Film Power Group(“Hanergy”) as an honoree in the Renewable Energy subsector. Hanergy appeared on the list of “Top 25 Global Renewable Energy Leaders” as the sole Chinese thin-film solar company.
Amid an increasingly complex and crowded business environment, Thomson Reuters pioneered a first-of-its-kind evaluation framework that incorporates an objective method for selecting honorees, evaluating companies across eight pillars of performance: Financial Performance, Management & Investor Confidence; Innovation; Legal Compliance; Environmental Impact; People & Social Responsibility; Reputation; and Risk & Resilience. Honorees were selected from a pool of over 1500 evaluated companies.
Hanergy issued a statement about the announcement: “We are thrilled to receive this honor from Thomson Reuters, a world-leading information firm. To be honored alongside so many global leaders in the field of renewable energy is a true testament to the world-class innovation embodied in our thin-film solar technology and our bright prospects for future growth.”
This year, Hanergy has made many exciting advances in the field of thin-film solar technology. Hanergy’s newly launched Hantile solution, a product combining highly efficient solar panels with traditional roof tile, boasts an industry-leading conversion efficiency of 17.5% and promises to make the construction industry more eco-friendly. Hanergy has cooperated with Slovenian aerospace solutions provider Alta Devices to apply thin-film solar panels to the company’s next-generation drones, extending their flight time by two hours. This year Hanergy also worked with German car manufacturer Audi to integrate solar cells into panoramic glass automobile roofs.
