‘Solar Module Super League’ (SMSL) member, Trina Solar has started producing PV modules using the largest wafer size (210mm x 210mm) technically possible today with multiple other features to provide 500W-plus modules.
‘Solar Module Super League’ (SMSL) member, LONGi Solar has reported a new record P-type monocrystalline PERC (Passivated Emitter Rear Cell) PV module conversion efficiency of 22.38%, culminating in an overall efficiency gain of almost 2% in the last two years.
Leading monocrystalline wafer producer, LONGi Green Energy Technology has guided a surge in net profits expected for 2019, due to increased manufacturing scale lowering production costs and with significant growth in overseas market demand for its PV module subsidiary, LONGi Solar.
Inline solar cell measurement equipment specialist Aurora Solar Technologies (AST) has secured a new volume order for PERC solar cell measurement systems from what it said was the largest manufacturer of high-efficiency PERC solar cells.
‘Solar Module Super League’ (SMSL) members, JinkoSolar, JA Solar, GCL SI, Q CELLS and Canadian Solar have announced supply deals, new project developments as well as new partnerships and awards this week.
The fifth PV CellTech event takes place in Penang, Malaysia on 10-11 March 2020, and will be happening at a time when PV is going through its most dramatic realignment yet, in terms of manufacturers dominating the cell supply landscape, and the technologies being deployed in mega mass-production.
‘Solar Module Super League’ (SMSL) member, Risen Energy Co has continued to grow revenue in 2019, after shifting module sales and PV project development overseas after the China 531 New Deal in 2018, impacted its business.
Inline solar cell measurement equipment specialist Aurora Solar Technologies (AST) has won a major repeat order from two top-tier China-based manufacturers of high-efficiency PERC (Passivated Emitter Solar Cell) solar cells.
Major PV materials supplier Heraeus Photovoltaics has collaborated with German company, Cell Engineering to develop metallisation pastes for its ‘LECO’ (Laser Enhanced Contact Optimization) technology that can increase multiple solar cell architectures conversion efficiencies by up to 0.15%.
Fraunhofer ISE in collaboration with industrial partners have developed a fine-line metallisation process to create contact fingers with a width of 19µm and a height of 18µm in a single printing step that is almost invisible to the naked eye.
