‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member, Trina Solar has been recognised as a ‘Top Performer’ in PV Evolution Labs (PVEL) 2020 PV Module Reliability Scorecard for the sixth consecutive time, while collecting 10 ‘Top Performer’ awards with six different modules.
‘Solar Module Super League’ (SMSL) member Trina Solar expects its recently introduced high-performance ‘Duomax V’ bifacial double-glass panel and ‘Tallmax V’ (backsheet) series panel nameplate capacity to reach around 5.5GW by the end of 2020.
Trina Solar has launched its latest ‘Duomax V’ bifacial double-glass panel and ‘Tallmax V’ (backsheet) series panel. Based on the 210mm x 210mm large-size silicon wafer and monocrystalline PERC cell, the new panels enable high power output of more than 500Wp and module efficiency up to 21%.
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.
ROTH Capital Partners has told investors that the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus in China is likely to impact the solar industry supply chain, due to extended work stoppage in eight provinces, many being key solar manufacturing hubs, through February 9th.
‘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.
The latest release of PV-Tech’s unique PV ModuleTech Bankability Rankings report confirms the exclusive status today afforded to just four PV module suppliers (JinkoSolar, LONGi Solar, Canadian Solar and First Solar), in being the only companies to have AA-Rating module bankability status within the industry today.
During the recent series of articles on PV-Tech - outlining the drivers, methodology and validation of the new PV ModuleTech Bankability ratings for PV module suppliers - one of the key inputs required to generate the overall supplier bankability score (and rating class) was the financial strength of each company.
PV Tech has been covering analysis of R&D expenditures of PV manufacturers for over a decade. This blog anticipates some of the key trends set to be fully revealed in the forthcoming edition of technical journal Photovoltaics International.
The PV industry roadmap - and related metrics of technology and bankability - are now being driven by leading module supplier, JinkoSolar, with others seeking to replicate Jinko’s product line options, trying to differentiate in markets that are receptive to low-cost alternatives, or focusing only on rooftop markets where volumes are lower and sales/distribution efforts are more intensive.
