Bloomberg classifies Conergy Tier 1 Module Manufacturer

Bloomberg New Energy Finance study classifies Conergy as a Tier 1 module manufacturer
Conergy highest ranked European brand for modules most frequently used in solar parks

Hamburg, 30 October 2012 – In its latest study, Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) classified Conergy as one of the so-called “Tier 1” manufacturers of crystalline photovoltaic modules. Bankability is the key criterion for tiering: “In most cases, banks are the strictest party when it comes to verifying the quality of the components and engineering, procurement and construction services providers (EPCs). By ‘bankable’ we understand manufacturers whose modules would be financed in non-recourse projects by non-development banks. Such modules need to have historically high quality standards.”

The ranking of the top module brands by the BNEF Intelligence Service confirms this Tier 1 classification by Bloomberg New Energy Finance: Conergy appears in 11th place in the ranking of modules most frequently used in debt-financed projects, ahead of all other German and even European solar companies.

“Conergy’s entire product portfolio conforms to the highest quality standards that are continuously monitored and ensured by our team of around 30 engineers who perform sophisticated certification audits and inspections – both in our own manufacture and at the facilities of our suppliers,” said Conergy Board Member Alexander Gorski. “We have also proven our expertise in the provision of services: TÜV Rheinland recently certified Conergy’s outstandingly high standards in the areas of project planning, design, engineering, construction, and commissioning.

With its extended service portfolio Conergy offers its customers – and therefore also the financing banks – an all-round worry-free package. The services include the operational and commercial management of solar power plants, maintenance, output insurance, as well as comprehensive guarantees.
