Conergy ranked as Tier 1 solar manufacturer by Bloomberg New Energy Finance
Conergy is most frequently used European technology in solar parks
Milton Keynes, 2 November 2012 - In a research note entitled "PV Module Bankability: an essential prerequisite?" Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) has classified Conergy as a "Tier 1" manufacturer of solar modules, reflecting the attractiveness of the solar technology company to developers of large-scale "solar parks" or "farms".
Conergy panels were used in Britain's first 5MW solar farm, close to Newark-on-Trent in Lincolnshire, and at another earlier this year near Bude in Cornwall.
Five other European brands also made Bloomberg New Energy Finance's top grade, which means their technology has been used in at least three utility scale solar projects worldwide, backed by non-recourse financing from at least three different (non-development) banks over the past two years.
"At Conergy we have 30 engineers worldwide who are 100% focused on quality," said Robert Goss, MD Conergy UK. "A focus on quality means we produce modules with higher, more consistent yields, that are popular with large-scale developers, and essential in countries like Britain. This research shows how Conergy's strong-in-low-light modules are among the most bankable in the country."
Conergy technology has been used in 14 debt-financed projects worldwide totaling 107 MW in output - more than any other European manufacturer - according to the research note.
