The PV module manufacturing supplier rating is one of the world-renowned and authoritative industry rating systems, wherein BNEF judges from multiple dimensions such as product quality assurance, government project bidding, and bank financing support. The quarterly tiering is widely regarded as the benchmark in the solar module manufacturing sector.
The selection of the first echelon manufacturers is regarded to be the strictest, where manufacturers must demonstrate that they can provide self-branded, self-produced module products for at least six projects. Moreover, these projects must obtain non-recourse financing from six different commercial banks.
Also, due to the rigorous selection process, BNEF Tier 1 is often used as a fair, objective and highly credible reference for attracting investment in PV projects worldwide.
