The Belt and Road Initiative have increased the demand within the infrastructure and energy sector opening up a new realm of possibilities for Chinese photovoltaic firms. JinkoSolar Holding Co Ltd, the world’s largest solar panel producer has been taking this advantage of the opportunities to come. They have been working towards evolving their strategies to accompany oversea markets better.
JinkoSolar Vice-President Qian Jing stated, “China's clean energy revolution is having a decisive influence on the economies participating in the Belt and Road, and the development of photovoltaic technology has made clean energy no more a luxury, but an affordable energy."
Many countries are participating in the Belt and Road Initiative and are working towards improving their infrastructure. Some countries that are in the early stages of developing the infrastructure have the opportunity to integrate solar power into their projects. Many nations still rely on traditional fuel imports, but photovoltaic power is becoming a much more affordable energy source.
Many local solar panel companies have been working towards emigrating their manufacturing abroad while also speeding up construction of factories in the countries that are participating in the initiative. JinkoSolar have already invested heavily in the different economies that are connected to the initiative. They are implementing their projects that involve 1 gW of capacity, which also includes a supply agreement with Mexico’s Federal Electricity Commission for 188 mW of capacity.
