The clean energy giant, Hanergy Thin Film Power Group (00566.hk), today 
announced that it's all set for the global launch of Thin Film Flat SOLARtile, 
its cutting-edge solar roof tiling solution developed in collaboration with CSR 
Group, the largest roof tile producer and roofing solution provider in the 
Southern Hemisphere. The duo, Hanergy and CSR Group, have also co-constructed 
the Renewable Energy Roofing Display Center that was built last month at Monier 
Roofing Headquarter located in Rosehill, Sydney.

Ahead of the global launch later this year, Hanergy marks the debut of its 
brand new Thin Film Flat SOLARtile at the Renewable Energy Roofing Display 
Center, welcoming visitors and international companies from across the globe to 
give them a first-hand view of this innovative solar roof tiling solution. The 
two companies will also sign an agreement to officially commence the presales 
of Thin Film Flat SOLARtile in Australia, New Zealand, southeast Asia, Japan 
and the United States markets. 

The Thin Film Flat SOLARtile is specially designed to meet overseas market 
needs. Unlike the curved shape of HanTile, Thin Film Flat SOLARtile is flat and 
has a square shape, which enables the house to meet local housing standards and 
harmonize better with the neighborhood. It adopts CROSS BOND structure, where 
the tile-to-tile interlock is put right in the middle of the next row's tile to 
ensure the best waterproof performance. Junction boxes are covered by 2mm steel 
and safe trays are used to protect cables. The design of the roofing system is 
inspired by Gympie Pyramid to feature a traditional Pacific vibe and improve 
the aesthetics of the housing.

Mr. Lv Yuan, Vice President of Hanergy Thin Film Power Group, said, "We're 
particularly excited about the launch of Thin Film Flat SOLARtile in the global 
market. We're confident that our latest solar roof tiling solution will set a 
new standard in the global solar market. Further, we're thrilled to join forces 
with CSR Group and hope to create yet another case study pronouncing the huge 
success of our soon to be launched solar roof tiling solution." 

With the incorporation of the CIGS thin-film solar chips, Thin Film Flat 
SOLARtile can achieve conversion efficiency, as high as 18.7%, which is the 
world record. The product has received an outstanding rating for being 
exceptionally windproof, waterproof and fire resistant. It can work under 
extreme conditions from -40 degrees to 80 degree Celsius. Along with thin-film 
technology's characteristics of being light, thin and flexible, as well as 
being able to work under low light conditions, it has great adaptability and 
can be applied in various scenarios.

Seizing over 70% of the market share in Australasia and as the largest roof 
tile producer and roofing solution provider in the Southern Hemisphere, CSR 
Group is a major Australian industrial company producing building products for 
residential and commercial construction. It also owns the biggest glass 
manufacturer in Australia and a curtain wall solution company.

Earlier in December 2018, Hanergy signed a cooperation agreement with CSR Group 
to co-develop Thin Film Flat SOLARtile. With CSR's dominant market share in 
Australia and rich experience in the roofing industry, and Hanergy's 
cutting-edge thin-film solar power technologies, the collaboration has yielded 
substantial results.
