‘Solar Module Super League’ (SMSL) member, JA Solar is supplying its high-efficiency bifacial PERC modules for two 2.4MW PV projects in South Korea, the largest projects so far to use the technology in the country.
Leading ‘Solar Module Super League’ (SMSL) member, JinkoSolar has set its sights on PV module shipments globally in 2019 reaching between 14GW to 15GW, which would be a new industry record for a module manufacturer after setting a new shipment benchmark of 11.4GW in 2018.
PV module manufacturer, Seraphim Solar System Co was established back in 2011 and PV Tech has known the company from its formative years. Yet, there have been periods in the past when things went almost silent on the news front, not helped by the fact that the company has remained private over the years.
PV manufacturers JinkoSolar, LONGi Solar and REC Group have recently filed petitions for inter partes review (IPR) of U.S. Patent No. 9,893,215 B2  with the US Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) in response to Hanwha Q CELLS patent infringement cases announced in early March, 2019.
PV Evolution Labs (PVEL) has published the 5th Edition of its PV Module Reliability Scorecard in partnership with DNV GL, which remains the most comprehensive publicly available comparison of PV module reliability test results.
China-based PV module manufacturer, Znshine PV tech has won a bid to supply solar panels to DEWA (Dubai Electricity and Water Authority) based projects to be used in various residential projects as part of Shams Dubai.
PV module manufacturer ZNShine PV Tech have developed graphene coating in collaboration with the China University of Science and Technology for its G12 Series of monocrystalline panels, which is said to increase the transmission properties of the glass, while the hydrophobic effect of the graphene coating achieves the highest level of panel self-cleaning, reducing O&M costs for commercial and utility-scale PV power plants.
