Norwegian panel maker Renewable Energy Corporation (REC) is using this week's Intersolar Europe to showcase its desert-friendly technology as it makes a push for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
REC, which claims to be Europe's biggest solar panel manufacturer, is using its stand in Munich to demonstrate its bifacial REC Peak Energy Series panel, which has secured desert proof accreditation under the IEC 60068 sand blowing protocol of certification company SGS.
The Peak Energy panel has been tested in the field at the Desert Knowledge Australia Solar Center in Alice Springs and the manufacturer says the Australian center has stated the panel ‘performs better than most of the monocrystalline competitors (c-Si) and achieved higher yields than panels produced by REC's industry peers.'
As part of the company's efforts to diversify markets, REC has opened an office in Dubai as a regional hub and staff will be on hand to discuss MENA partnerships, at Intersolar Europe.
