Updated: Leading ‘Solar Module Super League’ member touts new conversion efficiency gains for its P-type PERC and N-type ‘HOT’ bifacial solar modules, verified by TÜV Rheinland.
Business leader talks top trends around bifacial, module-making markets and technologies as part of onsite interview series at last year’s conference in Penang.
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.
As cell output tops 20GW and annual revenues exceed RMB 10 billion, PV Tech’s Carrie Xiao speaks to Tongwei Solar to determine the secrets behind its success.
During the past few years, the migration from multi to mono, replacing Al-BSF p-type cells with rear passivation layers (PERC), and having the capability of bifacial light absorption, have been the very obvious technology shifts seen within the PV industry.
Capital expenditure (capex) for c-Si manufacturing (covering ingot/wafer and cell/module stages) is forecast at approx. US$9 billion in 2019, consistent with levels seen during 2017 and 2018.
The German-China partnership between Manz and China Energy Investment Group Co., Shanghai Electric Group Co and Future Science City, now known as NICE Solar Energy, have set a new CIGS thin-film module conversion efficiency record of 17.6 %.
The forthcoming PV CellTech 2020 event in Penang, Malaysia on 10-11 March 2020 is to feature a special session topic on thin-film solar PV, and review the prospects of this technology being the subject of another round of global investments.
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.
Executive meets PV Tech in Shanghai to discuss the markets and product lines the Shanxi-headquartered manufacturer will focus on as it aims to double production next year.
