The proliferation of solar PV and other renewables is a cornerstone of the emerging new power system and, as a result, the solar industry has entered its fastest-growth period. This has become typified by surging demand for high-power PV modules that both produce more power and are more efficient than their predecessors. Providing a significant boost to power outputs, large-format modules have become a popular choice for customers the world over. Outdoor testing of modules is now providing empirical evidence of the benefits large-format modules produce, providing a crucial benchmark and invaluable data for customers to evaluate their module selection and procurement processes. In this PV Tech webinar, experts from TÜV Rheinland, CPVT and Trina Solar will discuss how to ensure science based and precision testing under field conditions, how empirical data is collected and analysed during TÜV Rheinland and CPVT’s outdoor testing, the empirical data behind a 670W module’s ultra-high power, and more.

Consumers are turning to residential renewables in significant numbers, driven by a desire to be environmentally conscious and a wave of high power prices. But turning green requires easy-to-use and, above all, safe technologies that meet expectations. Huawei is committed to building efficient, safe, reliable and grid-supporting smart PV plants that also provide smart services to consumers, and its Residential Solution has been tailored to meet consumer demand. This webinar will demonstrate the full suite of technologies offered within the Huawei Residential Solution, including a smart energy controller, smart AC charger, and AI-powered energy storage solution, and detail how it can place power back in the consumer’s hands.

FREE WEBINAR: Where are PV modules going in 2022? Manufacturing trends, performance levels, most-bankable suppliers, and everything else you need to know! Hear two talks from Finlay Colville, head of PV Tech Research, that were first presented at the recent PV ModuleTech event. The first presentation analyses PV manufacturing and production through the value-chain at the end of 2021 and forecasted to the end of 2022. Over and under-supply issues through the c-Si value-chain in particular are covered, including also where the industry is going with n-type productivity during 2022. The second presentation reveals the latest PV ModuleTech Bankability Ratings hierarchy/pyramid, revealing which 40 module suppliers today are the most bankable for global module selection. Case-studies are reviewed, alongside how companies’ financial problems show up clearly in the final ratings grades assigned to each company, from AAA down to C-Rated suppliers.

Join this free webinar to hear Martin Green, Scientia Professor, University of New South Wales explain the physical and technological limits for PERC cells and the potential efficiency advantages of TOPCon, HJT and IBC: - How much further can PERC efficiency be pushed? Has it run out of puff or is it just getting started? - The relative merits of TOPCon, HJT and IBC cell variants - The manufacturing technologies that need to be optimised for each of these cell variants (This is the keynote presentation from PV CellTech Online, 25th August 2021)
September 1, 2021
Register to hear PV-Tech’s head of market research and Chair of PV CellTech, Dr. Finlay Colville, discuss and explain the latest developments by the PV industry to move technology from p-type to n-type: - Hear about the latest developments in ramping new production lines for n-type cell variants - Discover which of the n-type options are being promoted the most - What are the challenges today in moving n-type to the multi-GW scale? - Are leading p-type mono PERC producers reacting to the threat from n-type investments? Additionally, Finlay will reveal the latest PV ModuleTech Bankability Ratings for leading PV module suppliers: - Is the industry still dominated by a few PV module suppliers, occupying Ratings of A, AA, and AAA? - Are there any n-type producers among the most bankable suppliers? - Is consolidation a reality? Why are there so many new companies now entering the PV sector in China? - Will the U.S. trade threats result in any major changes in global module supply? The presentation will conclude by looking at key metrics through to the end of the year, including module price/costs, and polysilicon production/supply.

Knowing which module suppliers are in control of in-house production is a key issue when looking at quality control and field reliability. During the webinar, creator of the PV ModuleTech Bankability Ratings analysis - Finlay Colville - will report on the latest rankings analysis of global PV module suppliers, focusing on which companies are making their own wafers and cells, and which are dependent on third-party outsourcing. Also, during this webinar, Frédéric Dross - Vice President, Strategic Development at STS - will explain the processes and documentation that manufacturers and importers should be adopting, to be able to demonstrate the provenance of their products, as well as covering general principles that stakeholders should be implementing in order to provide transparency on their supply chain. STS recently co-authored the Solar Supply Chain Traceability Protocol, which was published in April 2021.
