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 Teresa Barnes, who manages the Photovoltaic (PV) Reliability and System Performance Group at NREL We quizzed her over the trends dominating conference floor discussions, from bifacial's real potential beyond the hype to module manufacturing markets-to-watch and the top issues when benchmarking module quality.
