Sunman Commences World's First Lightweight PV Manufacturing Factory with 1 Gigawatt of Capacity January 17 2022

2022 Lucintel Composites Market Insights, January 17, 2022

Sunman held a grand commissioning ceremony with local authorities in Yangzhong City, China for its new 1 gigawatt manufacturing base – set to take the solar PV industry to new heights. This new base is a significant advancement for the PV solar industry as it showcases the success of Sunman's commercialization of a new PV solar technology, which now has the capability to scale globally.

The new factory based in China marks the return of the Sun Kking, Dr. Zhengrong Shi, a professor at the University of NSW in Australia. Through the use of polymer composite materials, founder Dr. Shi and the Sunman Team have successfully developed a lightweight and glass-free, flexible and thin solar PV module that unlocks far greater volumes of rooftop applications around the world. 40% of commercial rooftops for example are unable to withstand traditional glass panels, but with Dr. Shi's new PV technology: eArc, the addressable market for distributed solar will expand dramatically. these rooftops are now able to install solar panels (or “solar skins”).
