-DMEGC Solar sets a global benchmark: Sihong plant receives first four-star zero-carbon certification in the photovoltaic sector by TÜV SÜD
HENGDIAN, China, Oct. 18, 2023/PRNewswire/ -- DMEGC Solar factory in Sihong, Jiangsu Province, was named a Zero Carbon Factory by TÜV SÜD on October 16, marking a historic achievement as the first photovoltaic (PV) manufacturer to receive a zero-carbon endorsement from the certification body. This recognition underscores DMEGC Solar's commitment to energy conservation and emissions reduction (ECER), following its previous milestone of producing modules using 100% renewable energy in September.
As one of the first agencies authorized by the China Energy Conservation Association (CECA) to certify zero-carbon factories, TÜV SÜD carried out a comprehensive and systematic evaluation of DMEGC Solar's facilities in Sihong using the latest Specification Evaluation of Zero Carbon Factories (T/CECA-G 0171-2022). The assessment confirmed that the Sihong plant is 99% greenhouse gas offset and runs entirely on renewable electricity. These achievements qualify the plant as a Four Star and Zero Carbon Type I Factory, consolidating its position as a leader in the photovoltaic sector.
DMEGC Solar signed a strategic cooperation agreement with TÜV SÜD at the end of July 2023, focusing on carbon neutrality and zero-carbon factories. After setting the ambitious goal, the solar module maker embarked on a set of forward-thinking initiatives to reduce carbon emissions, including launching a sophisticated smart digital management platform, refining the energy mix and harnessing energy renewable along with carbon offset strategies. Additionally, the company has integrated a distributed energy generation system within its facilities to amplify the adoption of clean electricity. By modernizing equipment and instituting precise operational controls, they have optimized processes to save costs and improve efficiency. Its holistic approach extends to greening the infrastructure of its factories, office complexes and park amenities, along with reinforced waste recycling protocols and resource recovery mechanisms.
The Sihong plant, recognized as a Jiangsu Provincial Green Factory and recipient of low-carbon footprint certification from France's Certisolis, is transitioning to a zero-carbon factory. In September, the plant achieved 100% renewable energy production for all photovoltaic modules, a significant step towards its goal of carbon neutrality. Through energy-saving modifications, such as upgrading laminated sections and air curtains in exhaust gas heat recovery systems, the plant can save up to 870,000 kWh of energy per year, reducing 594 tons of carbon dioxide emissions. of carbon and avoiding 254 tons of coal consumption. This achievement reflects the company's long-standing commitment and rigorous efforts over the past few months.
DMEGC Solar, a leading manufacturer of high-efficiency photovoltaic modules, consistently prioritizes green, low-carbon, and sustainable practices. Since 2013, the company has been a pioneer in the integration of distributed photovoltaic systems in its main manufacturing centers. Looking ahead, DMEGC Solar has ambitious plans to add 44 MW of rooftop PV capacity to its factories in Sihong, Lianyungang and Yibin. In particular, DMEGC Solar is among the world's pioneering photovoltaic module producers to receive Low Carbon Certification from France. Additionally, the company's core PV offerings have been recognized as China's green design products. Backing these achievements, DMEGC Solar remains dedicated to powering all module production with 100% renewable energy.
The certification underlines DMEGC Solar's commitment to establishing an efficient, robust and science-based energy management system, which serves as a benchmark for ECER practices both in the field of solar photovoltaics and in the energy sector. manufacturing in general. The company is prepared to continue championing the green evolution of the sector, reinforce its position as a carbon-conscious leader and drive the industry forward through sustainable energy solutions.
