Q Cells files additional lawsuits for patent infringement

Hanwha Q Cells GmbH has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Astronergy Solarmodule GmbH with the Düsseldorf Regional Court. According to the company, this follows the June 2020 ruling by the Düsseldorf Regional Court, in which the court decided that Jinko Solar GmbH, REC Solar EMEA GmbH and Longi Solar Technologie GmbH had »unlawfully integrated a patented technology of Q Cells (EP 2 220 689) into certain solar products of their respective brands.« The defendants have appealed the ruling to the Düsseldorf Higher Regional Court. The hearing in the appeal proceedings is expected to take place in April 2021, says the company.
