Trina Solar Limited a leading integrated manufacturer of solar photovoltaic (PV) products from the production of ingots, wafers and cells to the assembly of PV modules, recently announced a collaboration with Germany-based E3/DC to develop next generation energy storage solutions for homes and small businesses.
After introducing Trinamount in 2011 and announcing the launch of Trinasmart recently, Trina Solar further strengthens its position as provider of solar energy solutions. "We are very excited about this new collaboration," said Ben Hill, Head of Trina Solar Europe. "Storage is a key technology going forward. It helps to balance solar energy generation with consumption. Customers thus become independent from rising energy costs. We see increasing interest in storage solutions and wish to be at the forefront of this development."
While the collaboration provides Trina Solar access to best-in-class storage technologies, E3/DC benefits from Trina Solar's global footprint. "Trina Solar is a well established and well respected global solar brand," said Andreas Piepenbrink, managing partner of E3/DC. "Trina Solar's sales and marketing offices throughout Asia-Pacific, Europe and Americas allow us to reach out to a multiple of markets and a broad scope of customers. This is a highly important and promising collaboration for us."
