In November, Hanergy signed a cooperation agreement with TAM-Europe Company, a subsidiary of China Hi-Tech Group Corporation to develop a brand new model of new-energy shuttle bus, exploring a path to integrate flexible thin-film module and shuttle bus to create a solar electric shuttle bus. In furtherance to this strategic goal, TAM-Europe Company is using Hanergy GSE’s next generation PowerFLEX flexible CIGS parts on its shuttle buses, integrating the advanced flexible thin-film cell technology and the critical ICI packaging technology and building better performing hi-tech airport shuttles.

The success of the current partnership paves the way for Hanergy to seek more cooperation opportunities in this field. Moving forward, Hanergy GSE will deepen its cooperation with TAM Europe and provide instant power for its clean energy products.” Sign up for the ESI Africa newsletter Source: Hanergy “Also, Since the airport shuttle buses operate under sunlight for a longer duration, the solar system can power the air conditioning system and extend the travelling range of the buses,” he added.   UNDP China, CCIEE launch report to facilitate low-carbon developmentlast_img read more
