Dr. Jin Hao, Vice President of JinkoSolar and had been inviting domestic and foreign experts to discuss draft testing proceedures for IEC60904-1-2 bifacial standards and openly discuss the difficulties of testing bifacial technology.
Leading Silicon Module Super League (SMSL) member JinkoSolar said it had been collaborating with TUV Rheinland to develop standardized testing methods for bifacial PV module technology.
JinkoSolar noted that it had already been working in this area, having convened the IEC/TC82 solar cell working group and efforts by Dr. Jin Hao, Vice President of JinkoSolar and had been inviting domestic and foreign experts to discuss draft testing procedures for IEC60904-1-2 bifacial standards and openly discuss the difficulties of testing bifacial technology.
The company also noted that it had joined a working group organized by Dr. Christos from TUV Rheinland to develop standardized testing methods with a draft of the testing method having recently been released for review.
Dr. Jin Hao said, "As an industry leader, JinkoSolar has deployed considerable resources towards further developing its bifacial technology and standardizing testing methods. We will continue to work with authoritative independent technical service providers such as TUV Rheinland to further study and standardize testing methods for bifacial modules used in outdoor power generation systems."
Recently, Yingli Green Energy highlighted their efforts in developing testing standards for bifacial technology and has been responsible for supplying its bifacial modules to a 50MW ground mount project in China, the largest to date to use bifacial modules.
Dedicated N-type monocrystalline module manufacturer Jolywood (Taizhou) Solar Technology Co. Ltd (Jolywood) has also recently noted that it had been collaborating with TUV NORD and the National Center of Supervision and Inspection on Solar Photovoltaic Product Quality (CPVT) in China to establish a preliminary testing standard for bifacial solar modules.

Understanding bifacial’s true potential: technology innovation and technical bankability of bifacial
The deployment of bifacial PV technology is growing rapidly. It has proven to be the most effective solution to reduce levelised energy costs (LCOE) and increase the Investment Rate of Return (IRR) of PV systems, offering substantially improved energy yield compared to the use of standard mono-facial modules. Even though the concept is not new, it has been a niche technology for many years with uncertainties in predicting performance and optimizing installations. Today, bifacial technology is becoming mainstream, with capacity available at the multi-gigawatt scale and with corresponding global deployment of project pipelines. Join this webinar, presented by Andrea Viaro, as he discusses the award-winning Swan bifacial module with transparent backsheet from DuPont, its features, benefits and differences vs. standard glass-glass modules. Jinko Solar’s new bifacial technology innovations will also be highlighted, specifically covering profitability in deployment at utility-scale PV power plants. Andrea will be joined by Dr.Lars Podlowski who will give a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of bifacial PV technology, with a special focus on benefits and risks industry buyers and investors should pay attention to.
