Global Reach, Local Support
AUO has started to develop its solar business in 2008 and formed a high-efficiency vertical solar value chain to provide customers with high quality modules and solar power project services. With solar factories and offices spanning Europe, the U.S. and Asia, BenQ Solar offers global reach and local support as well as providing prompt services and product delivery.
Our green commitment makes a difference. In 2010, we obtained the world's first PAS2050 Carbon Footprint Verification ever awarded for a PV module. In 2011, we joined the European PV Cycle Association to offer truly sustainable energy solutions. AUO SunPower, our cell manufacturing site in Malaysia, expects to be awarded LEED certification for its fab and office building.
In 2011, BenQ Solar sponsored the Apollo VI Solar Car, which competed in the World Solar Challenge in Australia. The Apollo VI, outfitted with BenQ solar cells, generated more than 1200W of electricity and reached a top speed of 120 km/h.
