Having launched its new Vertex range of modules, Trina Solar is pushing the technology envelope as it joins the latest in a wave of manufacturers to bring 500W+ modules to market. PV Tech spoke to Dr. Franck Zhang, head of product strategy and value management at Trina Solar, to get all the details about the technology within the module.
Despite having experienced numerous ups and downs over the years, Suntech has retained its status within China’s PV industry as an internationally respected and richly experienced solar player. Carrie Xiao reports.
Following the successive release of new high efficiency modules by JinkoSolar, JA Solar, Trina, Risen and others, the debate over wafer size has drawn to a close, at least for the moment. PV modules have too entered a new era featuring “big” products topping 500MW.
PV Tech’s Carrie Xiao speaks to Yingge Wang, head of global marketing at LONGi Solar, about the firm’s commitment to particular wafer sizes, and how the upstream sector opening up to new sizes is akin to opening Pandora’s box.
Carrie Xiao speaks exclusively to Trina Solar vice general manager and executive vice president Yin Rongfang on the company’s continued R&D, the roadmap for its new 210 module and why he feels modules remain “grossly undervalued” in the solar supply chain.
