JA Solar Holdings Co Ltd of China and BP Alternative Energy Holdings Ltd, a subsidiary of BP plc, have announced their intention to jointly develop and market part of their solar photovoltaic (PV) product portfolio over the next five years. The definitive commercial agreement is expected to be entered into before year end.

Under the agreement, JA Solar is expected to contribute its cost-efficient manufacturing and rapid execution capabilities, plus its access to third-party silicon and/or wafers, while BP is expected to bring its access to its own silicon and/or wafer supply, provide access to its global customer portfolio, and leverage its strong brand and sales and marketing capabilities in key markets.
