JinkoSolar Partners with Beijing University to Build the University's First Experimental PV Plant

Research will be conducted on a number of PV modules and inverters while they are exposed to various conditions.

SHANGHAI, Dec. 20, 2013 -- JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. ("JinkoSolar" or the "Company") (NYSE: JKS), a global leader in the solar PV industry, today announced that it will partner with Beijing University's Solar Power Engineering Center to construct the University's first experimental PV power plant on campus which will be used for collecting and analyzing data on the power generation capabilities of PV modules when exposed to various conditions.


The experimental system will be constructed on the rooftop of Beijing University's Mechanics Laboratory Building. Research will be conducted on a number of PV modules and inverters while they are exposed to various conditions. JinkoSolar will provide modules for the system and jointly participate in the research.

"We are very pleased to partner with Beijing University on this experimental PV power plant. We hope that this project will mark the starting point of a long-term relationship," Mr. Xiande Li, Chairman of JinkoSolar commented. "We look forward to developing relationships with other universities and scientific research institutions in an effort to improve communication between academic and industrial circles, even on the aspect of cultivating the talent in the industry, we will create mutual benefits for all parties."

"Our teachers and students will be using this PV power plant as a base for future experiments in an effort to better understand PV solar application. We appreciate all the support and effort JinkoSolar has put into making this project a reality. The University's PV Research Group will use the data generated by the system and analysis results to provide further insight for PV engineering design," added Dr. Dong Wang, Professor of Beijing University.
