    Upsolar’s UP-MxxxP modules were awarded with UNI 9177 Fire Class 1 resistant certification.

International solar PV module provider Upsolar was awarded with UNI 9177 standard, an Italian Fire Class 1 reaction certification.

The company’s UP-MxxxP series modules consist of non-flammable materials that ensure fire resistance and environmental sustainability.

Giuseppe D'Elia, Upsolar’s country manager in Italy said: “The results of this Fire Resistance Test are a testament to the excellence of the materials used by Upsolar in the production of our high-quality photovoltaic modules. Upsolar’s modules, especially when combined with power optimizing solutions from our technology partners SolarEdge and Tigo Energy, are among the safest products currently available on the market. By minimizing the risk of the formation and spread of fire, our modules simplify operations for installers while assuring the safety of our customers for the long run.”

The UNI 9177 test complies with the “Guide to the Installation of Photovoltaic Systems - Edition 2012” published by the Italian Ministry of the Interior’s Department of Fire, Rescue and Public Civil Defence.

    Now that the PV industry has unquestionably entered a new growth phase, all eyes are on which technologies will win through into the mainstream of PV manufacturing. PERC, n-type, p-type bifacial, heterojunction – all have become familiar terms in the ever-growing constellation of solar cell technologies. The question is which will offer manufacturers what they are looking for in improving efficiencies and cutting costs.

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
