The movement to 6-busbar module architectures and the emergence of multi-wire technology were key topics at PV ModuleTech 2017. PV Tech caught up with Franck Genonceau, business manager PV portfolio, at leading PV manufacturing equipment supplier Meyer Burger, to look at what to expect in the next wave of mainstream module technologies.
SPONSORED: LONGi New Energy recently announced that its independently developed M2A1L4 5BB (busbar) mono module product has been certified by TUV SUD, a testament to the efficiency, reliability and stability of LONGi’s products from a third-party certification body, and also further evidence of LONGi continuing to lead in the technology developments within the PV manufacturing industry.
To guarantee the long-term competitiveness of the PV industry, the cost of PV power generation ($/kWh) must be continuously reduced. Such reduction can be achieved in two ways: 1) by improving PV module performance (efficiency, annual energy yield, reliability); 2) by reducing manufacturing costs ($/Wp).
