‘Solar Module Super League’ (SMSL) member Trina Solar is to supply its mono-PERC bifacial ‘DUOMAX’ Twin dual-glass modules to EDF Renewables' two PV power projects in France that meet the CRE4.1 and CRE4.2 low-carbon footprint contract requirements.
Renewable energy firm Unisun Energy has completed and grid connected the 11.75MW Zonnepark Rilland project in The Netherlands, which has deployed Jolywood (Taizhou) Solar Technology’s N-type TOPCon bifacial modules.
The solar industry gets to grips with the bewildering array of new module technologies at the second edition of the PV ModuleTech event in Penang, Malaysia. The conference raised a huge number of questions such as how to evaluate bifacial technology and whether it might rise faster than predicted, how long p-type multicrystalline has left in the running and the perennial issue of quality, to name a few.
PV Tech caught up with Oakland Fu, technical manager at DuPont, to discuss data from one of the industry’s largest field studies as well as challenges for the industry in adapting to new technologies on the way to grid parity.
PV Tech caught up with Tristan Erion-Lorico, Head of PV Module Business, Laboratory Services, at quality assurance and risk management company, DNV GL, to discuss extended testing of bifacial modules and third-party, outdoor trials using single-axis trackers on 1500V.
