In response to the host’s question on the future development direction of the photovoltaic industry, Chairman Zhong Baoshen said that the journey of the photovoltaic industry was not plain sailing, but we always firmly believed that the photovoltaic industry was a bright industry representing the direction of energy change in the future of mankind. President Li Zhenguo said that in the past 10 years, the LCOE in the photovoltaic industry had dropped rapidly, Brazil, for example, had a feed-in tariff of 1.75 cents just a few days earlier. Photovoltaic would become the most economical energy type in most areas of the world in the near future. The combination of photovoltaic and energy storage would become the future energy solution of mankind.

In recent years, LONGi has given full play to the advantages of photovoltaic enterprise and actively participated in the construction of photovoltaic poverty alleviation power stations in Province of Hainan, Shaanxi, Shanxi and Hebei, benefiting 5007 households with efficient and reliable photovoltaic products. LONGi also donated photovoltaic power stations to the School of Physics of Peking University and Yunnan Huaping Girls' Middle School to support education and scientific research, and donated more than RMB 40 million (about USD 5.82 million) of photovoltaic heating equipment to 544 village clinics in Guyuan, Ningxia, demonstrating LONGi's high sense of social responsibility and lofty mission.
