Vietnam has produced the first line of solar batteries that meet international standards, offering consumers quality and affordable alternatives that cost 20-30 percent less than imported batteries.

The Saigon Giai phong (Liberated Saigon) daily reported on October 14 that Irex, an affiliate company of the Bach Khoa solar energy investment and development company, recently won the recognition from TUV Rheinland, a global provider of technical, safety and certification services.

As one of the pioneers in the application of solar energy in production and everyday use, Irex is the first organisation in Vietnam to win a TUV Rheinland certificate recognising its batteries meet the IEC/UL standard – viewed as a passport into the global market.-VNA
