CHANGZHOU, China, June 13, 2013

CHANGZHOU, China, June 13,2013 /PRNewswire/--Trina Solar Limited (NYSE:
TSL) ("Trina Solar" or "the Company"), a global leader in photovoltaic (PV)
modules, solutions and services, today announced that Semiconductor Equipment
and Materials International ("SEMI") has approved two standards submitted by
Trina Solar - the "Specification for Packaging Protection Technology for PV
Modules" (SEMI PV44-0513) and the "Test Method for the Content of Vinyl
Acetate (VA) in Ethylene-vinyl Acetate (EVA) Applied in PV Modules Using
Thermal Gravimetric Analysis (TGA)" (SEMI PV45-0513). Trina Solar is the first
PV company in China to lead the establishment of an international SEMI
standard.

The first specification aids in the standardization of packaging particularly
during the transportation of PV modules while the second specification
guarantees minimum quality standards around poly ethylene-vinyl acetate
(EVA).Both standards aim to ensure greater consistency across the industry.

"The establishment of the new standards is a milestone in the development of
both Chinese and International SEMI standards," said James Amano, Senior
Director, International Standards and EHS at SEMI. "The standards reflect the
success of increased global collaboration undertaken in recent years."

"We are proud to be the first PV company in China to establish new
international SEMI standards," said Wei Zhou, Vice President of Quality at
Trina Solar. "As an industry leader, Trina Solar is committed to contributing
to and supporting the scientific development and technological progress of the
PV industry. We developed these two standards based on our long industry
experience. We believe the standards will help the industry continue to meet
growing customer needs for more efficient and environmentally sustainable PV
solutions."

At its first plenary session in February 2012, the SEMI China PV Committee
accepted two proposals for new standards submitted by Trina Solar. The
committee also approved the establishment of the Crystalline Silicon PV Module
Task Force, which will be led by Trina Solar. The Company spearheaded the
drafting of the standards and the development of joint testing and
verification of technical indicators. The standards were technically approved
by the Photovoltaic Global Technical Committee and later approved for
publication by the global Audits and Reviews Subcommittee in May 2013.
