As LONGi is one of the 21 new Lighthouses globally, the WEF made the following remark about LONGi’s manufacturing competitiveness: “Empowered by a number of intelligent technologies, LONGi’s Jiaxing Production Base has developed and implemented more than 30 digital technologies to promote intelligent manufacturing, many of which are industry-first independent patented technologies, reducing unit manufacturing costs by 28% within one year and reducing yield loss. It is reduced by 43%, the production delivery cycle is reduced by 84%, and the unit energy consumption is reduced by 20%. ”
