FuturaSun has launched its ‘ZEBRA’ Series n-type monocrystalline IBC (Interdigitated Back Contact) solar panel series to the residential PV and C&I markets across Europe. The new Zebra series offers a superior esthetics, enhanced electrical performance and a solid reliability and durability, a hallmark of IBC technology.
Ginlong Solis Technologies has launched its latest hybrid energy storage inverter across EU markets. The three-phase Solis-HVES (High Voltage Energy Storage) inverter has one of the highest conversion efficiencies on the market and is designed to maximise solar-plus-storage systems with its intelligent and fully integrated energy management system.
PV inverter specialist, Huayu New Energy, has launched its ‘HY 2000 Plus’ microinverter, which has the highest recorded power density on the market and has four (4) MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) and quad-module-level monitoring as standard. The HY-2000-Plus is also the first commercially announced microinverter that is compatible with the latest 500-580Wp high-performance large-area solar panels that are entering the global market.
JA Solar has launched its highest performing large-area PV panel series, DEEPBLUE 3.0, which integrates a number of key technologies to provide power outputs of up to 545Wp. The new series is designed for an era of grid parity and intensive electricity price competition to effectively reduce the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) and maximize the economic value of PV systems for the renewable energy generation.
Major PV inverter manufacturer Sungrow Power Supply Co exported a total of 9GW of PV inverters to overseas markets in 2019, an 87.5% increase year-on-year, due to the significant decline in solar installations caused by policy changes in the Chinese domestic market stretching back to May 2018.
In filings with Nevada's Public Utilities Commission, the utility has outlined plans to power an under-construction Google data centre with solar backed by energy storage, in a deal that has the potential to break the corporate PV/battery record.
India's largest solar panel manufacturer, Waaree Energies said it was closing in on achieving cumulative solar module shipments of 2.5GW as its recent capacity expansions took nameplate production to 1.5GW.
Major PV inverter manufacturer, SolarEdge Technologies has been forced to accelerate expedited shipping via air freight, despite a 25% increase in manufacturing capacity as the company continues to set quarter sales records.
This article introduces a new methodology that allows leading PV module producers to be categorised by manufacturing and financial strength metrics, ultimately providing an investor-risk (or bankability) profile for non-residential end-market selection.
