The project, which is being lead by the Australian National University (ANU) and The University of New South Wales (UNSW).
A research project to identify solar cell conversion losses and provide commercial solutions, which was initiated in December 2017 by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA), has attracted ‘Silicon Module Super League' (SMSL) leader JinkoSolar.
The project, which is being lead by the Australian National University (ANU) and The University of New South Wales (UNSW) has attracted $29.2 million in funding and includes BT Imaging, Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems, US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), Sinton Instruments, Norwegian Crystals, Topsil Global Wafers, MiaSole Hi-Tech Corp and Tesla.
Although much is known about cell to module losses, the research program will include the entire supply chain, from silicon ingot growth, wafer, cell and module production. Also, new methods for detecting and eliminating defects in silicon modules are expected to be developed, and then applied in manufacturing.
JinkoSolar presents its tiling ribbon TR technology for the new high-end Tiger Pro series on June 8th, pressing ahead with plans to shift to a 500+ Wp range. As the first 580Wp utility solar panel, boasting an efficiency of 21.6%, Tiger PRO has been described as the world’s most powerful commercialised panel. Gain a comprehensive understanding of the Tiger PRO module series, with power generation of up to 580Wp. Learn about the premium technical features of the Tiger PRO series. Understand the impact of ultra-high efficiency modules on the LCOE of utility scale projects, including calculation of the yield benefit for different environmental conditions and installation types
The first ever event dedicated specifically to solar PV Heterojunction manufacturing and multi-GW production challenges and opportunities. Meet the global community driving Heterojunction to multi-GW status in mass production today in the spectacular setting of St. Petersburg in Russia.
Going into its fifth year over 200 delegates from 150 companies and 20 countries representing the PV supply chain will gather in Malaysia to discuss the technology roadmaps for PV cell advancement in GW markets. The scope of the event has been expanded this year, to cover developments in wafer supply and thin-film investments and technologies alongside all the regular benefits to all stakeholders tracking PV technology and investment trends for the next 5 years.
Understand fully the technical and logistical supply chains that determine the production and performance of solar modules, including all related factors impacting quality, reliability & bankability.
