Module maker JA Solar on Wednesday held the groundbreaking ceremony of the second phase of its 20 GW ingot factory in Qujing County, Yunnan Province.

Chinese state-owned energy company State Power Investment Corporation (SPIC) announced on Thursday that it had acquired Mexican renewable energy developer Zuma Energia for an undisclosed sum. Currently, Zuma Energia has four renewable energy power stations in operation with a total installed capacity of 818 MW, including two solar plants located in Sonora and two wind farms in Tamaulipas and Oaxaca. Zuma Energía, a joint venture between international emerging market investor Actis and Mesoamerica, a Latin American investment management firm, acquired the two projects from Spanish company Fisterra Energy in September 2016.
