The global RE100 initiative aims to unite Global Fortune 500 companies such as Apple, Google, Facebook, Coca-Cola, Microsoft, Philips and Goldman Sachs, to the committed goal of 100% renewable energy in the shortest possible timeframe. In order to achieve this climate goal, each company in the RE100 will commit to source 100% of the electricity used across their global operations from renewable energy.

In joining the RE100 initiative, LONGi will assume greater responsibility for the global development of the low-carbon economy and achievement of climate goals.

From 2006 to present, LONGi’s energy strategy is divided into three major stages:

Stage 1: 2006-2015, using traditional energy to produce clean energy.

Stage 2: 2016-present, using clean energy to produce clean energy.

LONGi manufactures photovoltaic products in China’s Yunnan and Malaysia’s Kuching – regions that are rich in hydropower. The finished products are exported to customers in all parts of the world, becoming “amplifiers and porters of clean energy”.

Stage 3: In the future, LONGi will realize its “Solar for Solar” concept of manufacturing clean energy products using 100% clean energy and achieve a negative carbon earth.

In recent years, LONGi has installed solar photovoltaic systems on the rooftops of its production facilities to promote the use of clean energy. At the same time, LONGi also actively developed solar photovoltaic power stations with more than 2GW of ground power stations and 1.5GW of commercial & industrial power stations cumulatively. LONGi is one of the first photovoltaic enterprises to purchase “Green Electricity Certificates” and has been listed in the list of green manufacturing enterprises by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People’s Republic of China many times.

Helen Clarkson, CEO of The Climate Group said, “LONGi is a world leading solar technology company. The Climate Group and LONGi are fully aligned in the concept of sustainable development. We hope to work with LONGi to jointly promote the rapid development of global renewable energy.”

We will take concrete steps to ensure that our commitments are achieved. LONGi is willing to work with global partners to drive the global energy transformation, and we firmly believe that the goal of 100% renewable energy worldwide by 2050 can be achieved, even possibly sooner.”

Shanghai Electric Resumes Major International Projects, Empowered by “Desert Roses”

SHANGHAI, March 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Shanghai Electric Group (“Shanghai Electric” or “the Company”), the world’s leading manufacturer and supplier of power generation and industrial equipment, one-stop energy solution provider, has resumed construction at majority of its International projects including the 700 MW CSP + 250MW PV Hybrid Project in Dubai, the Pancevo Gas Turbine Combine Cycle Power Plant in Southeastern Europe, and Sylhet 225MW Combined Cycle Gas Turbine Power Plant Project in Bangladesh.

As the world’s most comprehensive single-site CSP project, its core building solar collector tower that has just completed topping-out in January 2020, Dubai 700 MW CSP + 250MW PV Hybrid project concentrated solar power plant has been speeding up its construction to meet the commercial operation deadline in August 2021.

To overcome the challenges of the outbreak of the Coronavirus, Shanghai Electric has launched a video-conferencing and telecommunications solution to streamline communications between the local branch and the Design Institute.

Since January this year, Shanghai Electric has worked with local partners to establish a specialist virus prevention and control team to protect staff while working on-site. The local-hired personnel received fact sheets and advisory handbooks with on-site safety training in both English and Arabic.

Mr. Abunayyan, Chairman of ACWA Power, has commended the achievement of the government of China in controlling and managing effectively the widespread of Coronavirus. He also emphasized the achievement of Shanghai Electric in controlling the project site and working on mitigation actions for possible damages and to catch up with work schedule.

“Readiness is the outcome of preparedness, therefore it’s significant for Shanghai Electric to allocate resources, deliver timely training, and build a system to improve operational capacity based on risk assessments,” said Zhao Hui, the manager of Dubai project. As part of the system, the UNESCO’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is implemented across all projects conducted by Shanghai Electric, with Shanghai Electric Dubai holding regular HSE safety drills for unforeseen events.

The project has also recruited an additional 903 local employees in construction and management positions in response to a reduction of on-site staff as a result of global travel restrictions.

“We are likely to go ahead of the timetable in extending local talent pool as an outcome of the epidemic outbreak,” said Zhao Hui.

“People are the main force for resuming to normal work. There are 70 Chinese workers who remain working on-site amid the virus outbreak and 10 of them are female. I am particularly grateful to the female workers as they are the well-deserved ‘desert roses’ who entirely act out the spirit of #EachforEqual,” said Zhao Hui.

“I choose to stay despite the fear,” said Guo Liming, engineer of Dubai project, also one of the female workers remain on site in Dubai project. “Our team has been working to turn the desert into oasis and I am proud to be part of it.”

In Shanghai Electric, 19.9 percentage of the positions are held by women, which is surpassing the global female participation rate in the industry at 12% as shown in “The Future of Women at Work” report by consultancy firm McKinsey.

“Shanghai Electric recently launched a commendable contribution campaign to help those in need at China. We as a project team has been stronger than ever before, fighting the unfortunate turn of events with all necessary control measures in place. Alone, we can do so little but together we can do so much,” said Amreena, the HSE engineer in Dubai.

Government says patients of coronavirus in Palestine are in good health

Spokesman for the Palestinian government, Ibrahim Milhem, said today that the health of the 35 patients of novel COVID-19 (coronavirus) in Palestine remain in good health so far.

Speaking at a press conference in Ramallah, the occupied West Bank, Milhem said in addition to the 35 confirmed cases of COVID-19, another 35 samples are currently under laboratory examination, and whose results will be announced later in the upcoming night.

He said all future samples taken in the West Bank district of Bethlehem, the worse affected district in Palestine, will undergo medical examination in the same district rather than being sent to Ramallah, the home of the central laboratory of the Ministry of Health, which is to ensure faster results.

Milhem called upon the media to deal with the current crisis with utmost professionalism and transparency to avoid the propagation of rumors, which are often misleading.

“Global reports indicate that the death rate from coronavirus does not exceed 1%. Children are the most resilient to the virus, and no deaths have been recorded for any child yet,” the government’s spokesman reassured the Palestinian citizens during the conference.

Earlier today, Milhem announced that the number of cases in Palestine has reached 35 since March 5.

All of the 35 cases are in the Bethlehem district, except for one case in Tulkarm.
