Ultra-high performance panels in the utility scale projects in the European markets – the importance of durability, reliability and innovation in reducing the LCOE and maximizing the IRR

May 13, 2019

Presented by Andrea Viaro, Head of Technical Service Europe from Jinko Solar, the initiative partner of this webinar, as he outlines the key features and benefits of using ultra high performance modules. Viaro discusses how Jinko Solar’s new technology innovations impact the LCOE and IRR of the PV utility-scale power plants. Viaro is joined by Athanasios Bakalis, Group Technical Director and Nikos Sokos, General Manager MEA and Central Asia of METKA EGN, who presents a currently announced 300MW project in Spain, that will be fully powered by Jinko’s Cheetah modules and will deliberate potential cost benefits and risk assessment of the utility scale projects and what drove METKA EGN to choose Jinko’s ultra-high efficiency modules. Ruben Ron Head of Section Solar Iberia and LATAM for DNV GL, also joined the webinar to discuss an impact of the reliability and bankability of solar panels and how world-class best practices in manufacturing and upholding stringent quality standards, coupled with the use of field-proven components can help protect solar investments?
