JinkoSolar Holding Co. Ltd. has incorporated a French subsidiary called JinkoSolar SAS and opened an office in Montpellier, in the province of Languedoc-Roussillon. The new location will support JinkoSolar's local partners and complement the growth of the region's solar market, Jinko says.
The new office will be located in the first energy positive office building of the Languedoc-Roussillon region, the company adds. The building, which is called the Montpellier International Business Incubator, was developed and is currently managed by Montpellier Agglomeration, the local government administrative authority responsible for business development in the greater Montpellier area.
Earlier this year, France introduced open tenders for large-scale solar energy projects. ‘The French market is evolving with the introduction of the new open tenders' framework. JinkoSolar is working with its local partners to prepare answers to the open tenders,’ notes David Li, company chairman.
