LONGi is named after the former president of Lanzhou University. In 1986, when Li Zhenguo and Zhong Baoshen had just enrolled, the formal opening ceremony of Lanzhou University was held before the statue of its president, Jiang Longji. His inspirational life story planted the seeds of a long-cherished dream in their hearts: We will name our company LONGi! LONGi represents a continuum of cultures and education-driven technologies.
Technical Innovation in the Semiconductor Sector.
On Feb. 14, 2000, Xi’an Xinmeng Electronic Technology Co., Ltd., the predecessor of LONGi, was established.
Xi'an LONGi Silicon Technology Co., Ltd., was established.
Xi'an Lumei Single Crystal Silicon Co., Ltd. was established.
The first batch of 18 monocrystalline silicon furnaces began operations, with a production capacity of “device-level” mono silicon ingots up to 30 tons per year.
Lead in the new era of monocrystalline silicon wafer in the world!
The 1,000 ton Mono Silicon Ingot Project (Phase I) of LONGi was completed in Ningxia.
The company name was changed to Xi’an LONGi Silicon Materials Co., Ltd.
Xi'an Tongxin Semiconductor Accessories Co., Ltd. was established.
The 350 MW Mono Silicon Wafer Project (Phase I) of LONGi was built.
The Wuxi Project of LONGi (Phase I) was built, with a production capacity of mono silicon wafers up to 600 MW.
The LONGi Research and Development Center was founded.
LONGi was officially listed on the main board of the Shanghai Stock Exchange (stock code: SH601012). Production expansion was completed, with wafer production capacity growing to to 1 GW. The Ningxia Project of LONGi (Phase II) was built, with a production capacity of mono silicon ingots up to 8,000 tons.
For the first time, LONGi’s annual wafer shipments exceeded 1 GW.
SOLAR TECHNOLOGY ERA
Marching towards the global leading solar technological company.
Xi’an LONGi Clean Energy Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of LONGi, was officially established, marking LONGi’s formal entry into the EPC business of solar power plants. LONGi merged with Zhejiang LERRI Solar Technology Co., Ltd. and extended its business to the solar cell and module sector.
Xi’an LONGi New Energy Co., Ltd. (formerly LERRI Solar Energy Co., Ltd.) was registered, and the company began to develop its distributed solar business.
LONGi (Kuching) SDN. BHD., the first overseas production base, was founded. The LONGi Employer Brand was officially released. LONGi New Energy Division of the Thai subsidiary was established.
Li Zhenguo, President of LONGi, proposed the “Solar for Solar” concept of PV power generation for PV products at the 24th U.N. Climate Change Conference, which attracted global attention.
The rated power of the LONGi 72/144 half-cell module exceeded 450 W, setting a new world record.
LONGi was designated as the “solar solution supplier” for the China Pavilion at EXPO 2020 Dubai, UAE. The company’s first building-integrated PV (BIPV) product — ‘LONGi Roof’ -- went into production. LONGi joined in the Climate Group’s RE100, EV100 and EP100 Initiatives as well as the Science Based Targets initiative, or SBTi.
PV+ HYDROGEN ERA
Green electricity makes green hydrogen.
Xi'an LONGi Hydrogen Energy Technology Co., Ltd was established.
May 2021, The opening of LONGi Green Energy Exhibition hall
Jan. 2022, LONGi and Xi'an Jiaotong University's technology cooperation received the attention of People's Daily
Feb. 2022, LONGi adds 54-cell module to its Hi-MO 5 product line
March, LONGi achieves new world record for indium-free HJT cell efficiency. LONGi sets new record for p-type HJT silicon solar cell efficiency.
In May 2022, Forbes released its 2022 Global 2000 List, in which LONGi rose to the 724th place in the rank.
In June 2022, LONGi released the 2021 Sustainability Report globally.
