Q CELLS awarded ‘Top Brand PV’ seal by EuPD Research for sixth year running


EuPD Research awards the Top Brand PV seals based on its Global PV InstallerMonitor survey, which compiles the opinions of participating solar installers from leading solar markets. Q CELLS received the Top Brand PV 2019 status in the European countries of Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, France, the Netherlands, the UK, and Belgium. Therefore, Q CELLS was rated as a brand that delivers exceptional products and service quality throughout the major dynamic solar markets of Europe.

Six-in-a-row achievement serves as a reminder of Q CELLS’ commitment to quality

In securing its sixth EuPD Research Top Brand PV seal, Q CELLS further cements its reputation as one of the most trusted and respected solar companies in Europe. The EuPD Research Global PV InstallerMonitor surveys more than 100 installers in each nation (75 in Belgium) and is widely renowned to be an accurate and independent method of gauging which solar companies consistently earn the trust of installers operating in these competitive markets.

Such feedback – derived from the very companies at the heart of the solar industry – is vital for end-users because it places emphasis not only on brand strength, but also on brand reputation and products’ quality. By receiving the Top Brand PV seal for six consecutive years, Q CELLS has demonstrated a level of consistency in quality and service that is largely unmatched in the industry.

The accolade follows on the heels of EuPD Research data confirming that Q CELLS was the leading solar module supplier in Germany in 2018, which remains to be the Europe’s largest solar market.

Mark A. W. Hoehner, CEO at EuPD Research, said: “There are only a few companies that have been able to consistently reach ’Top Brand PV’ status over the last few years. For almost ten years we have identified those top brands to enable installers and end customers to differentiate the most sustainable and reliable partners from others, and criteria like this are key purchasing decision drivers in Europe.”

Mr. Hee Cheul (Charles) Kim, CEO of Hanwha Q CELLS Co., Ltd., added: “It is encouraging to once again receive this distinguished accolade, especially at a time when European and Australian solar installers are demanding even greater quality and service. We are pleased to be able to consistently meet and surpass their expectations. We are already a market leader in many important European markets, and this further recognition from EuPD Research will no doubt spur Q CELLS to continue its drive to increase its market share across the continent.”
