Yingli Group was founded in 1987 by Mr. Miao Liansheng. Yingli Group entered the photovoltaic industry in 1993 and was the earliest photovoltaic manufacturing enterprise in China. In 1999, Yingli Group undertook the country's first 3MW polysilicon solar cell and application system demonstration project, which passed the acceptance in 2003, filling the gap in the commercial production of solar cells in China. In 2007, it entered the field of green building materials (BIPV) industry and create a brand named “Gain Solar” and in 2017, the first national zero-carbon research institution was launched by Yingli group in.
