Li Hejun is considered by many to be a saviour rather than a ruthless businessman, owing to the fact he makes money from renewable energy sources. This means that Hejun has pioneered an idea for people to discard unnecessary fossil fuels and harness energy from sources that are renewable, such as solar and hydro power plants.
He is the founder and the chairman of Hanergy, which is China’s biggest and one of the world’s most acclaimed renewable energy source companies. Renewable energy is touted to be the future of the world and Hejun, the visionary was able to figure that out before anyone else in China.
Life of Li Hejun began in the humble surroundings of Heyuan in Guangdong in China. Born in a middle-class family, not a lot is known about his childhood, but Hejun rose to prominence as the chairman of the Hanergy firm. He was not so long ago- February 2015 to be exact, the richest man in all of China.
