JinkoSolar has announced that the company has been named the most “bankable” PV manufacturer by Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) among 57 module brands. The rankings are based on BNEF’s global survey to key PV stakeholders on which module brands used in projects are most likely to obtain non-recourse debt financing from commercial banks.
The survey respondents included banks, technical consultants, EPCs, and independent power producers (IPPs) from across the world and were asked to consider product quality, long term reliability, field deployment performance, and the manufacturer’s financial strength.
According to Kangping Chen CEO JinkoSolar the result of the survey confirms that JinkoSolar is the most preferred brand by banks and the brand that industry players are willing to use in their projects, as well as also being the top brand that finances are most willing to fund,”.
“We maintained our position as one of the largest manufacturers of PV modules in the world by delivering 9.8GW modules in 2017 thanks to our continuous endeavors in quality and technology improvements. We will continue to invest in quality to assure delivery of power and performance in the field with a higher level of product quality and reliability as we pursue further growth both in established markets and emerging ones.”
