Longi Roof is mainly oriented to the industrial and commercial roof users. It is positioned as a prefabricated BIPV product, which can be customized and used in the on-site construction of prefabricated building. Besides, the product is more adaptable for buildings, creating a new category of prefabricated BIPV.

“At present, there are about 4 billion square meters of buildings that have been completed every year. If 5% of the buildings are installed with BIPV products, the installed capacity would reach about 20GW, which is almost equivalent to a Three Gorges project.” said Chen Pengfei, General Manager of Longi’s New Energy Division.
