The solar ignited flame aligns with the sports’ concept of “All are equal, all gather under the sun and receive the energy.” Before the opening ceremony, at the site of Golden Summit atop of Emei Mountain, the Games flame is kindled by the power converted from first light of the sun by JinkoSolar’s N-type record-high efficient Tiger Neo panels installed on-site.
In addition to lighting the Games torch, N-type Tiger Neo panel has been widely used in a number of other ways, including the installations in some parts of the Olympic Village for lighting and air conditioning, carports, solar-storage-charging stations for EVs, residential complex with full scale set of solar powered infrastructure, etc.
“It is a great honor that our most advanced n-type Tiger Neo panels are used to ignite the Games flame, showing that N-type solution is staying ahead of the peers in terms of technological development on this front,” said Dany Qian, VP of JinkoSolar.
Lighting the flame of the torch for the National Games with solar power symbolizes the country’s determination to work towards its goal of building a renewable-based society.
