PV Tech continues its deep-dive into the making of Trina Solar’s new Vertex platform, delving into the thought process behind the manufacturer’s ‘low voltage, high current’ approach, how Trina intends to scale up manufacturing, and why it believes the solar supply chain must unite behind 600W+ modules.
The PV industry has recently witnessed the launch of a new wave of high-efficiency, high-power modules incorporating state-of-the-art technology. As China and other countries around the world embrace grid parity, modules with higher conversion efficiency and output are becoming increasingly favoured by the market.
