JA Solar Holdings Co., Ltd. (Nasdaq:JASO), one of the world's largest manufacturers of high-performance solar power products, today announced that it will donate solar modules to Peking University, Tsinghua University and Beijing Jiaotong University for their participation in the 2013 Solar Decathlon China, hosted by the National Energy Administration of China and the U.S. Department of Energy.
"JA Solar is delighted to once again contribute to the Solar Decathlon, which for the past six years has made a huge contribution to bringing through the next generation of innovators in the solar industry," said Mr. Baofang Jin, executive chairman and CEO of JA Solar. "We hope that by offering these students the use of JA Solar's modules, we can help inspire them to push the boundaries of new technology, which has always been at the core of JA Solar's culture."
The International Solar Decathlon, often called the "Olympics of the Solar Industry," challenges participants to combine architectural design, energy efficiency, and cutting edge solar energy technology and apply them to residential buildings. This year's event, to be held at Peking University, will mark the first time it has been held in Asia.
JA Solar's support of the three universities in this year's event follows its sponsorship of Tsinghua University's participation in the 2012 Solar Decathlon Europe.
