JinkoSolar to Supply Sinopec With Panels for Green Hydrogen Production

  • JinkoSolar and Chinese oil major Sinopec Group have closed a large panel supply deal for green hydrogen projects using solar energy.
  • Jinko Solar is the largest solar panel manufacturer in the world in terms of cumulative global shipments boasting accolades for the highest quality and performance.

The generated electricity of JinkoSolar’s high efficiency solar panels shall power the electrolyser to produce hydrogen for further processing. The hydrogen produced is slated to meet the needs of the biofuel production process at Sinopec’s biorefinery, averting thousands of tons of CO2 emissions per year.

This landmark agreement between JinkoSolar and Sinopec Group for green hydrogen, leverages a combination of competence and technology – offering low-cost solar power generation to foster efficient hydrogen production.

“We are proud to collaborate with Sinopec Group as their preferred choice for efficient and reliable solar panels to power their green hydrogen projects.  These are critical for ramping up green hydrogen adoption and for driving costs down,” said Yao Feng, GM of JinkoSolar China,

“Sinopec Group’s renewable hydrogen production combined with our expertise in solar energy, is a step further towards China’s commitment to net zero emissions by 2060,” concluded Feng.
