BAODING, China, June 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited (NYSE: YGE) ("Yingli Green Energy" or the "Company"), the largest vertically integrated photovoltaic ("PV") module manufacturer in the world, known as "Yingli Solar," scored third rank in Huawei's recently launched study* in which Yingli Solar (17%) came out as the most popular Chinese-origin brand after Lenovo (30%) and Huawei (21%). For the study that was prepared in cooperation with the GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies and TNS Emnid, 2600 individuals were interviewed, among those 200 top economic decision-makers, 100 policy-makers and 1000 random respondents in both Germany and China.
As a China-based solar PV industry leader with global presence, Yingli Green Energy has been investing in marketing campaigns to promote brand equity and public reputation which is brought to the world stage. As Yingli Green Energy is the first Chinese and the first renewable energy company in the tournament's history to sponsor both the 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cup™, the Company's brand campaign "All Under One Sun" incorporates elements of Chinese culture into the message of sustainability awareness. It encompasses both digital promotions and the Company's on-site activities in Brazil.
At Intersolar Europe, the world's leading exhibition for the solar industry taking place in Munich from 4 - 6 June, 2014, the Company will take the opportunity to pre-celebrate the kick-off to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ one week prior to its official start. Visitors will experience a show act including photo opportunity with the Official World Cup™ Mascot "Fuleco".
At booth 370, Hall A1, the Company will showcase its latest products of multi- and monocrystalline PV modules. Yingli Solar products have been on the market for more than 10 years. They win over by their high quality and module yields proved by in-house lab tests as well as comprehensive third-party tests executed by leading independent testing institutes.
"Our strong position as a top PV module supplier in Germany underlines once more that our long-term investment in our brand, customer base, products, and employees has paid dividends demonstrating our commitment to the European market even during challenging times," said Mr. Liansheng Miao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yingli Green Energy.
