Copenhagen Welcomes Yingli Solar's Expansion into Denmark's Green Energy Sector

Mar 6, 2024 The Chinese enterprise Yingli Solar, a frontrunner in the global solar energy industry expands to Copenhagen.

We are thrilled to announce that Yingli Solar, a frontrunner in the global solar energy industry, has chosen Denmark for its latest expansion. This strategic move by Yingli Solar, a company renowned for its comprehensive smart photovoltaic (PV) energy solutions, highlights Denmark's leadership in sustainability and renewable energy.

Established over 25 years ago, Yingli Solar has become a dominant force in the PV industry, with a presence in more than 100 countries worldwide. The company is dedicated to advancing solar energy technologies and has been instrumental in the development of 118 Chinese and international standards, showcasing its commitment to sustainability and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The decision to expand into Denmark was influenced by the country’s exceptional ecosystem for green energy and technology innovation. During an early 2023 fact-finding tour facilitated by Copenhagen Capacity, Yingli Solar identified Denmark's vibrant market and the strategic significance of aligning with the Danish government's vision and industrial support for the SDGs.


Yingli Solar's entrance into the Danish market is poised to foster exchange of cutting-edge experiences and technologies in the photovoltaic sector. It is anticipated to stimulate the entire value chain of solar energy solution operators active in Denmark and across Europe. Initially focusing on sales and service, Yingli Solar's Danish operations are expected to create approximately 10 jobs and lead to the establishment of an Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) service company around Nordic Green Tech. This expansion aligns with Yingli Solar's mission to contribute meaningfully to the global SDG goals for a sustainable human society.


"We are delighted to welcome Yingli Solar the Greater Copenhagen Region. Their expansion here is a testament to Denmark's leading position in green technology and our commitment to sustainability. Yingli Solar's presence will not only create valuable job opportunities but also enhance the solar energy solutions landscape in Denmark and beyond."
- Asbjørn Overgaard, CEO of Copenhagen Capacity


This significant development underscores Denmark's appeal as a hub for green technology and innovation, attracting world-leading companies like Yingli Solar. Through collaborations such as this, Denmark continues to make strides toward a sustainable future, leveraging solar energy to meet its ambitious climate goals.
