Sungrow Chairman Urges World to Unite on Climate Change -- Solar leader declares “red alert”

New York, the United States, September 23, 2020 -- Sungrow, the global leading inverter solution supplier for renewables, a member of RE100 as well, shares its insights on climate actions and devotes its expertise on urging the global communities to net-zero future during the Climate Week NYC 2020 taking place virtually on September 21-27, 2020.

Climate change is an intricate and interwoven challenge among businesses, industries and societies. Nearly two-thirds of the world’s power is currently generated using coal and natural gas. As a result, 40% of global carbon dioxide emissions come from the power sector. At the current pace, it would be difficult to contain the global warming temperature below 1.5 degrees Celsius. This sense of urgency has been understood by Sungrow long back to accelerate the clean power generation as a replacement of fossil-based power for a sustainable growth.

Climate change is a crisis which we will only be able to address if we work together on a global scale. The next decade will be crucial to put us on track to decarbonize the economy,” said Prof. Cao Renxian, Chairman of Sungrow, in an executive interview of the Climate Group.

As a pioneer with a 23-year track record in renewable energy, Sungrow plays a critical role in leading technical innovations, in particular the advanced solar-plus-storage solution which enables unintermittent clean energy supply all day long while ensuring grid stability, showing an ambitious and sustained efforts to tackle the climate crisis. “We are delighted to devote the expertise as the world attempts to rebuild a better and cleaner future. We urge more corporations to join hands for the global decarbonization as the power of them to accelerate the pace of change is profound,” added Prof. Cao.

Sungrow keeps investing in clean energy technologies and seeing them as a vital part of the long-term operational plans. Despite the impact of the current pandemic, its deployments hit 120 GW as of June this year, equivalent to generating about 166,600 GWh of clean electricity per year and eliminating 134 million tons of carbon dioxide.

As a member of RE100, Sungrow leads the way to switching to renewable electricity. The company commits to sourcing 100% renewable electricity across its entire global operations by 2028. Sungrow’s commitment demonstrates its greater sense of social responsibility to a “Green mission, better life”, adopting sustainable practices in its facilities.
