Mono module manufacturer LONGi Solar has unveiled a PERC bifacial module at the SNEC exhibition in Shanghai.
The 72-cell version of the Hi-MO2 panel has a power output of 360-365W. According to LONGi, the front side cells will operate with a 21% efficiency. The rearside of the module will have an efficiency not less than 75% of the front.
Bifacial modules have emerged as a key technology theme at SNEC this year with a host of manufacturers launching new products. LONGi confirmed in a statement that it had reached “mass production” of the Hi-MO2 modules making it more than an attention-grabbing release scheduled to coincide with a trade show.
"Hi-MO2 extends the strengths of mono PERC to the backside of the module, and can achieve higher power and higher energy yield without increasing costs, which will help decrease the LCOE, and bring more value for PV power plant investors," said Li Wenxue, president of LONGi Solar.
"LONGi has the confidence to continuously provide high efficiency monocrystalline PV products with the best cost performance ratio for global customers, to use technology to speed up progress towards grid parity, and to make more contributions to improving environment condition," he added.
SNEC 14th (2020) International Photovoltaic Power Generation and Smart Energy Conference & Exhibition [SNEC PV POWER EXPO] will be held in Shanghai, China, on May 25-27, 2020. It was initiated by Asian Photovoltaic Industry Association (APVIA), Chinese Renewable Energy Society (CRES), Chinese Renewable Energy Industries Association (CREIA), Shanghai New Energy Industry Association (SNEIA),etc. and jointly organized by 23 international associations and organizations including Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA). The exhibition scale of SNEC has evolved from 15,000sqm in 2007 to over 200,000sqm in 2019 when it attracted over 2000 exhibiting companies from 95 countries and regions all over the world and the overseas exhibitor ratio is over 30%. SNEC has become the biggest international PV tradeshow with incomparable influence in China, in Asia and even in the world.
PV CellTech 2020 features invited presentations from CTOs from the leading multi-GW cell producers to the industry today, providing a full understanding of high-efficiency capex plans for 2020-2023, migration plans to n-type cell structures, plans to implement larger wafer formats, and what the 10-GW cell fabs of the future will look like.
