This year’s PV ModuleTech show in Penang opened once more a window into how manufacturers, and the developers they supply to, are navigating the rapid pace of innovation in the module making industry. The launch of the PV ModuleTech Bankability Ratings as the event got underway placed the spotlight on the financial and industrial health of the world’s top module manufacturers.
On the sidelines of the Malaysia show, PV Tech caught up with Jon Burke, solar market strategy head at Henkel. We quizzed him over the trends dominating conference floor discussions, from the top issues when benchmarking module quality today to IEC standardisation, bifacial applications and module manufacturing markets-to-watch.
