Panda Green Energy Group is a leading investor and operator focusing on photovoltaic power plants in China.

To propel the global application and development of green energy, UNDP and Panda Green Energy Group launched a global promotion program of panda-shaped solar plants on 1st September 2016.

The Panda Solar Stations base their appearance on China's national treasure - the Giant Panda. The 50 MW power plants cover a total area of 248 acres, with the black part composed of monocrystalline silicone and the grey and white part thin film solar cells. The first Panda Solar Farm has been designed in Datong city, in Shanxi province, China    

UNDP and Panda Green Energy Group are collaborating on a campaign designed to promote public consciousness about environmental-friendly technologies and sustainable development, as well as to encourage youth participation in innovation enterprises for social good. The campaign hopes to engage and inspire the youth in China and elsewhere in the world to promote the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and provide a platform to solicit ideas on helping to tackle some of the toughest development challenges.

We work with Panda Green Energy Group to:

  • Jointly advocate the Sustainable Development Goals
  • Engage youth in “innovation for development” initiatives
  • Develop research on the landscape of youth in China, as part of UNDP’s Global Youth Strategy (2014-2017)
