Module manufacturer Meyer Burger has introduced a new product platform for its solar modules, enabling the scalability of new manufacturing capacities and accelerating mass production. 

The new product can also be combined with future solar cell technologies such as IBC-HJT (heterojunction) and HJT-perovskite tandem. According to the company, the planned products contain several characteristics of the glass-glass and glass-backsheet modules, including durability, bifaciality, low weight, and sustainably high performance, in addition to multiple editions in different colours.

Also, the new product can eliminate downtime due to product changes and complex procurement logistics processes caused by product diversity, helping Meyer Burger further reduce manufacturing costs. 

The production of the products will take place in the US. 

Looking forward, Meyer Burger aims to produce solar modules with a total output of about 800MW in 2023 due to ongoing disruptions in global supply chains for some industrial electronics components, along with the preparation of production lines for the new platform resulting in a lower production volume. 

Last month, Meyer Burger signed a supply agreement for silicon wafers with Norwegian solar energy company NorSun. The deal will allow Meyer Burger to increase its share of European-sourced wafers, strengthening “the resilience of its supply chains” as it aims to expand its solar cell and module production to 3GW of annual capacity by 2024.

This deal came after Meyer Burger’s agreement with Norwegian Crystals last year for European-made silicon wafers.

The conference will gather the key stakeholders from PV manufacturing, equipment/materials, policy-making and strategy, capital equipment investment and all interested downstream channels and third-party entities. The goal is simple: to map out PV manufacturing out to 2030 and beyond.

This special webinar will look at one of the most important changes impacting PV manufacturing today; how to establish and sustain new facilities around the world. For more than two decades, policy-makers have grappled with the challenges of nurturing domestic manufacturing sectors. Many countries have tried to create domestic sectors: Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, India, Europe and the U.S. But success stories have been rare. Mistakes seem to be repeated. And all the while, Chinese dominance of the industry has only increased. However, in the past 2-3 years, new drivers have emerged that suggest the dream of a global PV manufacturing ecosystem could be a reality. Join us as we shed light on this.

Understanding the PV module supply to the U.S. market in 2024 & 2025. The conference gathers together developers, independent power producers and module suppliers to the U.S. solar market as well as EPCs, banks, investors, technical advisory and testing & certification specialists.
8 October 2024
PV Tech has been running an annual PV CellTech Conference since 2016. PV CellTech USA, on 8-9 October 2024 is our second PV CellTech conference dedicated to the U.S. manufacturing sector. The event in 2023 was a sell out success and 2024 will once again gather the key stakeholders from PV manufacturing, equipment/materials, policy-making and strategy, capital equipment investment and all interested downstream channels and third-party entities. The goal is simple: to map out PV manufacturing in the U.S. out to 2030 and beyond.
26 November 2024
Understanding PV module supply to the European market in 2025. PV ModuleTech Europe 2024 is a two-day conference that tackles these challenges directly, with an agenda that addresses all aspects of module supplier selection; product availability, technology offerings, traceability of supply-chain, factory auditing, module testing and reliability, and company bankability.
