Trina expands Australian presence


The Chinese photovoltaic module manufacturer cites a growing customer base as a key reason for its decision. It is also looking to develop new business opportunities.

In particular, Trina is looking to collaborate with downstream partners, industry groups, universities, and research institutions.

Just last week, the company announced that it had signed a three year research and development agreement with the Australian National University. The aim is to develop high efficiency silicon solar cells for mass production.

Trina has been operating in the Australian solar market for two years now. It says it was drawn to the country due to its attractive government incentives, which include federal rebates, solar credits and state-level feed-in tariff schemes.

John Susa, newly appointed country manager of Australia and New Zealand commented: "We foresee strong growth for the industry, both for residential rooftops and larger-scale commercial and utility projects.

"Trina Solar looks forward to participating more directly in the growth of the industry and to collaborating with Australian partners to bring solar photovoltaics to the next level of adoption and popularity."
