Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited engages in the design, development, marketing, manufacture, installation and sale of photovoltaic (PV) products in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and overseas markets. The company’s products and services cover the entire PV industry value chain, ranging from crystalline polysilicon ingots and wafers, PV cells and PV modules to the manufacture and installation of PV systems, and starting from 2012, to the development and operation of solar projects. The company’s end-products include PV modules and PV systems of different sizes and power outputs. It sells PV modules under its own brand names, Yingli and Yingli Solar, to PV system integrators and distributors located in various markets worldwide, including China, Japan, the United States, the United Kingdom, Chile, Algeria, Germany, France, South Africa, Turkey and Honduras. Products and Services The company’s products and services include the manufacture of polysilicon ingots and wafers, PV cells, PV modules and integrated PV systems; and the development and operation of solar projects, which include the entire PV industry value chain, with the manufacture of polysilicon feedstock being the exception. Polysilicon Ingots and Blocks A polysilicon ingot is formed by melting, purifying and solidifying polysilicon feedstock into a brick-shaped ingot. The polysilicon ingots are then cut into blocks. The company mainly produces 800 kilogram multicrystalline polysilicon ingots and its polysilicon blocks are generally available in cuboid with the same face size of 156 millimeters x 156 millimeters and different heights. Polysilicon Wafers The polysilicon blocks are then sliced into wafers with wire saws. Thinner wafers enable a more efficient use of polysilicon, and lower the cost per watt of power produced. The thickness of its wafers and the diameter of its wires were 180 microns and 120 microns, respectively, as of December 31, 2015. The company’s wafers are generally available in the size of 156 millimeters x 156 millimeters. PV Cells A PV cell is a device made from a polysilicon wafer that converts sunlight into electricity by a process known as the photovoltaic effect. The conversion efficiency of a PV cell is the ratio of electrical energy produced by the cell to the energy from sunlight that reaches the cell. In addition, the company has commercialized 600 megawatts of monocrystalline production capacity for each of monocrystalline ingots and wafers, cells and modules in Baoding, Hebei Province. These production lines are designed to produce next-generation high efficiency monocrystalline PV cells based on the technology developed through Project PANDA, a collaboration project among the company, the Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands, a major solar research center in Europe, and Tempress Systems, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Amtech Systems, Inc., a global supplier of production and automation systems and related supplies for the manufacture of PV cells. The company uses all of its PV cells in the production of its PV modules. PV Modules A PV module is an assembly of PV cells that are electrically interconnected, laminated and framed in a durable and weatherproof package. The company’s PV modules are made with a frame design that improves their ability to withstand strong wind and vibrations. A majority of its own PV modules are made with PV cells produced by it and have output ranging from 250 to 340 watts. Integrated PV Systems A PV system consists of one or more PV modules that are physically mounted and electrically interconnected with system components, such as batteries and power electronics, to produce and store electricity. The company produces PV systems and also designs, assembles, sells and installs stand-alone PV systems for lighting systems, mobile communication base stations and residential applications. Markets and Customers The company’s products are sold in China’s domestic market and in various international markets, including, among others, Japan, the United States, Turkey, France, Germany and the United Kingdom. The products that it sells are primar
