Chinese solar cell and module manufacturer Aiko Solar has entered into an agreement with European solar and energy storage distributor Memodo to sell 1.3 GW of its All Back Contact (ABC) modules on the first day of Intersolar Europe 2023, marking the first gigawatt-level back contact module purchase in the world.
Under the agreement, Aiko Solar will supply Memodo with 1.3 GW of ABC modules while working together to develop complementary products and localized services for the distributed market in Europe.
Memodo is recognized as one of Europe’s fastest-growing and leading distributors of solar PV, energy storage, charging stations, and heat pump systems.
Aiko Solar’s independently developed ABC modules have achieved TÜV SÜD certification, certifying their efficiency of up to 24.27% and a delivery efficiency of 24.0%. This translates to greater power output per unit area.
At the signing ceremony, Aiko Solar’s chairman and general manager, Chen Gang, expressed his excitement about the partnership, “We are honored to establish a solid partnership with such an excellent local partner as Memodo, and to provide quality solar energy products to European customers, accelerating the process of carbon neutrality in Europe.”
Memodo CEO Tobias Wenleder also expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership and the companies’ shared vision for advancing clean energy technologies, stating that Memodo had chosen to establish a long-term partnership with Aiko Solar based on their continuous exploration of market development and their relentless pursuit of innovative technology and products.
He added that Memodo would distribute high-quality ABC modules throughout Europe as part of this partnership.
