Carbon footprint verification demonstrates WINAICO as one of the cleanest solar module producer in the world

Bureau Veritas Certification's recent carbon footprint verification on WINAICO's WST-P6 shows WINAICO's manufacturing processes only contribute to 3.86% of the products' total Greenhouse Gas emission, proving WINAICO as one of the cleanest solar module producer in the world

WINAICO, Taiwan's largest PV module brand, receives the carbon footprint verification on the WST-P6 module production by Bureau Veritas Certification. In order to determine Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission of WINAICO's WST-P6 product series, assessments were conducted across all WINAICO facilities and suppliers in accordance to ISO/TS 14067:2013. The result positions WINAICO as one of the cleanest manufacturers in the industry.


The contribution of raw materials is shown as Resource Extraction and found to be responsible for 94.16% of all GHG emission. The manufacturing operations and facilities have been assessed to contribute only 3.86%. This positions WINAICO as one of the cleanest manufacturer in the module manufacturing industry. To put it into perspective, the total energy payback period to offset 100% of GHG emission measured is <1.5 years for modules installed in most places across Australia (based on emission factors of grid electricity from 2008). Similarly, energy payback period is approximately 1-3 years across other major solar markets of the world (based on emission factor data from 2011).

"It is WINAICO's mission to deliver the cleanest form of energy to the market", said Davis Chen, Chairman and CEO of WINAICO. "The carbon footprint assessment shows WINAICO's manufacturing processes only contribute to 3.86% of WST-P6 modules' Greenhouse Gas emission volume. It is further proof that WINAICO is one of the cleanest solar module manufacturers in the world."

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
