Leading ‘Solar Module Super League’ (SMSL) member, JinkoSolar has received the Intersolar Award 2019 for its Swan bifacial module with a transparent backsheet developed by DuPont.
A major theme at Intersolar Europe was the rapidly expanding number of high-performance solar panels, driven by p-type mono PERC (Passivated Emitter Rear Cell) and bifacial versions, in half-cut, half panel configurations that reached or exceeded 400Wp power output.
The Intersolar Award Jury recognized JinkoSolar’s Swan bifacial module for its comprehensive performance quality with its Cheetah bifacial half-cut cell technology, as well as novel utilization of transparent backsheet, making it significantly lighter than glass-glass modules.
With an output of up to 400W, the modules are designed for PV power plants applications given that they are optimized to ensure a low LCOE, backed by a linear 30-year performance warranty, setting a new standard for power output, energy yield, reliability and LCOE for this technology class of solar panel.

Frank Niendorf, JinkoSolar General Manager Europe said, "This prestigious award is a great honor for our company and speaks to the high level of innovation that we constantly strive to achieve. Our Swan module builds on our core Cheetah cell technology and combines a number of innovations. The power increase, mounting method compatibility, lighter weight, and improved shading-response performance ensure that the module will stand out in an increasingly competitive market. Overall, this product is yet another example of our ongoing efforts to develop better solutions that address the constantly increasing demands for quality and technology in the post-subsidy era."
The Swan modules can achieve power output of up to 400W on the front side and up to 20% energy gain from the rear side.
Bifacial panels are expected to gain considerable market share in the industrial and utility-scale European markets as several projects in a post subsidy market such as the UK became financially viable by adopting bifacial technology.
Mar 10 - Mar 12, 2021
Penang, Malaysia (also available virtually)
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. This event will be run as a live event in Penang for delegates able to attend and will also welcome virtual delegates via streamed content and online networking.
Oct 27 - Oct 29, 2020
Going into its fifth year over 200 delegates from 150 companies and 20 countries representing the PV supply chain will gather (virtually, due to COVID-19) for 3 days 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.
