China Southern Power Grid Co., Ltd. ranked 110th on the 2017 Fortune Global 500 list, with a latest fiscal year revenue of $72.8 billion. The MOU concerns co-operation in building a demonstration project of micro-energy network complementary with renewable energy in Nansha, Guangzhou.

The Chinese government has developed a massive plan for converting fossil energy consumption to sustainable energy consumption. This MOU is an example of Savosolar’s strategic intent to be an active player in the vast China market of renewable energy. It also shows that the work we have done and are doing in China on several fronts is step by step bringing positive results. We believe this demonstration project could be first of many and it also supports the understanding of the high potential of the Chinese market for large scale solar thermal systems.
