‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member Trina Solar and building materials and PV systems developer China Singyes Solar Technologies Holdings have jointly secured a bid to build a 250MW ‘Top Runner’ PV power plant project in Tongchuan, Shaanxi province, China.

The ‘Top Runner’ program only promotes high-efficiency modules and has been a key driver of PV manufacturers transitioning from standard BSF (Back Side Field) cell technology to PERC (Passivated Emitter Rear Cell) technology and further advanced technologies such as heterojunction (HJ) and IBC (interdigitated Back Contact) modules. 

The 250MW ‘Tongchuan Photovoltaic Power Generation Technology Top-runner Base Project’ was said to be starting construction by the end of September 2018, and the project would be completed and grid-connected by 30 June 2019.

The ‘Top Runner’ program has been excluded from recent surprise caps on utility-scale and Distributed Generation projects in a Chinese government policy change, due primarily to over US$17 billion in back-payment FiT subsidies to PV plant owners after several years of deployments running ahead of government plans, which culminated in over 53GW was installed in China in 2017.

Bifacial PV modules will be the dominant solar PV technology globally within one or two years; in the utility-scale sector, their market share is already above 70%. This webinar will provide a clear view on the successful implementation of bifacial technology, maximizing system performance and minimising LCoE.
