Dany Qian is not only one of the most recognized faces on the renewables circuit in Asia, she's also an instrumental part of the continued growth of Jinko Solar, the world’s largest producer of solar panels.
Jinko has been growing at a breakneck speed since its launch in 2006, with Qian playing an important role in developing and implementing the company’s market positioning strategy. The company sells its products in 100 countries and has 15,000 employees across seven production facilities and overseas subsidiaries.
Qian is a 10-year industry veteran and a highly visible advocate for solar power solutions and broader global sustainability conversations. Qian was selected to represent the Chinese solar industry at the landmark COP-21, in 2011, which resulted in the Paris Agreement.
With Jinko playing a huge role in providing energy alternatives around the globe, Qian has earmarked a new roadmap for the company to have all its operations and facilities powered by renewables by 2025.
“As the world’s largest solar module manufacturer, it doesn't make sense that we produce renewable equipment but not use renewable energy ourselves," Qian has said. "We are well positioned to lead the industry in the pursuit of giving the next generation a livable planet, an affordable and sustainable energy solution."
