Leading 'Solar Module Super League’ (SMSL) member JinkoSolar has secured a total of 10 ‘Top Performer’ awards in PVEL’s 2020 PV Module Reliability Scorecard in its sixth consecutive year of entering the test.
The annual ‘2020 PV Module Reliability Scorecard’ has been published in partnership with DNV GL and was announced in collaboration with PV Tech, via its TechTalk Webinar Series.
JinkoSolar had entered four different modules into the PVEL tests that each achieved at least one Top Performer award in the four historical reliability testing regimes, resulting receiving a total of eight Top Performer awards, according to PV Tech’s annual analysis of PVEL’s scorecard Top Performers.
However, the SMSL member also received a further two awards in the new PAN file test for module performance simulations in the field, bringing its total number of awards to 10.
Kangping Chen, chief executive officer of JinkoSolar, commented, "We are proud to be recognized for the sixth consecutive year by PVEL for the reliability and performance of our modules. Being recognized as a Top Performer once again reflects our dedication and commitment to the research and development of high-quality PV products.
PVEL set the benchmarks for testing higher this year which was a challenge our R&D teams were able to rise to. I am confident that global demand for our high-quality PV products will only continue to grow as customers increasingly gravitate towards products that offer the highest efficiency, long-term reliability, and best return on their investments."
JinkoSolar is also one of only two global PV module manufacturers that have been recognized as a Top Performer every year since 2014.

Virtually all PV modules for large-scale utility-based solar sites are imported to the US, especially from Chinese companies using manufacturing sites across Southeast Asia. This puts extreme pressure on US site developers, EPCs and investors, in understanding fully the differences between the companies offering imported PV modules How credible are the companies supplying the products? What is the financial health of the parent entity? Where is the module produced, and is this undertaken in-house or through third-party OEMs? What is the supply-chain for the module sub-components including wafers and cells? And then, how will the modules perform in the field, and is it possible to gauge reliability levels benchmarked against competitors? This webinar will provide insights from two of the leading experts in PV module manufacturing, supply, performance and reliability: Jenya Meydbray of PV Evolution Labs and Finlay Colville from PV-Tech. The 1-hour session will include presentations from Jenya and Finlay, and then a brand-new supplier scorecard matrix that combines the key outputs from PVEL's Module Reliability Scorecard and PV-Tech's PV ModuleTech Bankability Ratings, with specific focus on module supply and use in the US market.
