While you're watching the final game of the World Cup today, keep a keen eye on the advertisements along the sidelines. You're likely to see the name Yingli Solar: a massive Chinese solar power manufacturer that few soccer fans are likely to know. Climate Desk recently visited Yingli's sprawling plant, and got a first-hand look at the booming company.

Founded in 1998, Yingli quickly grew into a global company with an IPO in 2007. Yet most people haven't ever heard of it—which is exactly why the company is spending millions to get its name on billions of TVs across the world today. Check out Climate Desk's excellent video below. [Climate Desk]
