Markets & Trends

Back-Contact’s Move to the Front

Back-contact technologies – metal wrap through (MWT) and interdigitated back contact (IBC) modules – promise high energy yields per square meter and are already making a significant impact in markets for residential rooftop and small commercial PV. In this pv magazine Webinar, we partner with leading materials company DSM for a closer look at how these technologies differ from conventional module designs, and the technology roadmap that could lead to bigger market impacts over the coming years.

Why Large-Scale Solar Alone no Longer Makes Sense

With grid congestion and curtailment plaguing utility-scale PV development in many parts of Australia and the proposed 5-minute settlement by AEMO, live from October 2021, the case for coupling solar arrays to large-scale storage is becoming increasingly compelling. But how can solar + storage projects be effectively executed? And what are the keys for developing a successful business model?

Data-driven monitoring starts at the inverter

Like so many other industries in 2020, operating a PV plant is all about data. Inverters, long known as the ‘brains’ of a PV system, are still getting smarter and, as the first component in a PV system where data on the energy being generated is gathered, have a key role to play here. In this pv magazine Webinar, we will take a closer look at the features of Sungrow’s CX Series inverters.

Large Scale Battery Energy Storage Safety: Trends & Standards

As battery energy storage technologies assume a bigger role in the global transition to renewable energy, the importance of developing and operating a safe system is paramount. In this pv magazine Webinar together with our initiative partner Clean Energy Associates (CEA), we will look at current safety trends in battery energy storage system design and installation, along with a review of relevant safety standards in the U.S.

Wind directionality and stowing position: A new nexus for single-axis tracker safety

In this pv magazine Webinar, we will welcome five experts to discuss wind directionality and stowing position of single-axis trackers, and how to avoid and mitigate common mistakes to build trust in the solar industry.

Bigger, better and more powerful: large wafers and HJT combine

The PV module technology landscape has an unavoidable feature in 2020: bigger modules with higher power output. But do bigger modules based on standard cell technologies really deliver? pv magazine Australia is partnering with Risen Energy Australia to examine what innovation looks like from the wafer, right through to the cell and a module – to investigate why 210mm wafers and the next-generation of heterojunction can cut through on cost and performance.

Tiling ribbon technology and the system implications of 500 W+ modules

Employing large size wafers and high-density tiling technology, JinkoSolar’s new Tiger Pro Series modules come with a power rating of up to 580 W. During this pv magazine Webinar, developed in partnership with JinkoSolar, we will take a closer look at some of the innovations helping to push module output beyond 500 W. And we will have further input from leading inverter and tracker suppliers on implications of such modules for other system components.

Filling in the gaps: The evolution of high-density module design

In this pv magazine Webinar, developed in partnership with Q Cells, we will examine some of the different approaches to high-density module design that are appearing on the market, placing recent progress within the context of other developments in the module market, and examining the areas where solutions are still needed.

Boosting your PV Business through Smart Energy Upselling

In this pv magazine Webinar, we will discuss how combining smart energy offerings can help homeowners make the best use of the rooftop generated PV power. Join us in the debate on how to boost self-consumption with smart energy management!
