Jolywood said it had collaborated with TUV NORD and the National Center of Supervision and Inspection on Solar Photovoltaic Product Quality (CPVT) to establish a preliminary testing standard for bifacial solar modules.
Dedicated N-type monocrystalline module manufacturer Jolywood (Taizhou) Solar Technology Co. Ltd (Jolywood) said it had collaborated with TUV NORD and the National Center of Supervision and Inspection on Solar Photovoltaic Product Quality (CPVT) to establish a preliminary testing standard for bifacial solar modules.
The company noted that it recently held a seminar with the testing organizations that was related to best testing methods for bifacial modules as result of long-term outdoor testing, laboratory research validation and collection of data.
Jolywood noted that the ‘I-V test method was preliminarily confirmed after discussions on bifacial solar cell modules, including test conditions, test methods and processes, nominal requirements for module nameplates, test reports and other relevant elements. At the same time, the corresponding recommended values of the standard have also been proposed in accordance with different installation sites.’
Liu Yong, CEO of Jolywood Solar Technology said, “This a significant step forward for Jolywood. We expect it to bring commercial success. Jolywood is committed to promoting further cost-cutting in the breakthrough technology and its large-scale application in order to inject new momentum into the industry.”
Recently, Yingli Green touted its role in developing international standards for bifacial modules and is one of leading suppliers to date.
Jolywood is currently ramping the world's largest 2.1GW N-type monocrystalline bifacial solar cell production facility in China.
Bifacial solar cells and modules were the hottest new products showcased at SNEC 2017, in Shanghai, the largest dedicated solar exhibition.
The 4th bifiPV workshop is being held in Konstanz, Germany on October 25 to 26, 2017.
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.
