Striving for Sustainable Solar: Reducing environmental impacts at the module level

In this pv magazine Webinar, we will learn how REC Alpha Pure has achieved these advancements on solar sustainability, explore the product’s innovative design and exceptionally strong frame that ensures lasting high power, as well as discuss the critical role that sustainable manufacturing will play moving forward.

Cutting out the cracks: Advantages of thermal stress cutting

Since their introduction midway through the last decade, half cut cells have grown to become an industry standard technology adopted by virtually every module manufacturer. And as we see larger formats and other innovations that require cells to be cut into three or more pieces, the trend is only set to grow further; and this places the processes used to cut the cells at the heart of PV manufacturing. In this pv magazine Webinar we’ll take a closer look at the innovative thermal laser separation developed by 3D-Micromac, comparing this to the traditional ‘scribe and break’ processes still widely used in PV manufacturing, and taking a look at Voltec Solar’s production line in France where the TLS tool is in operation.

Keep cool and distribute stress: A recipe for improved performance

Both higher energy yields and longer lifetimes are needed for PV modules to meet growing customer expectations. Couple this with the fast moving nature of PV technology – larger formats, new cell interconnection techniques and many more can all affect long term performance – and it’s clear that understanding and mitigating the various mechanisms that lead to performance has never been more important. In this pv magazine Webinar we’ll examine the roles of temperature, humidity and mechanical stress in driving some of these mechanisms, and how Coolback’s innovative solution promises to limit the effects of these, ensuring both better day-to-day module performance and a longer operational lifetime.

Reducing solar project risk for extreme weather

We will discuss how rigorously tested modules and correctly engineered system designs create a major opportunity for U.S. utility-scale developers to lower project risk and LCOE.

Concerns and solutions – reliability in large-wafer modules

New technologies come with concerns as well as opportunities. This is true even for something as fundamental as changing the size of a silicon wafer- new dimensions and module layouts also bring changes elsewhere in the system design, and all of these need to be thoroughly tested to ensure there are no nasty surprises that appear later on. In this pv magazine Webinar, we’ll delve into the reliability concerns that the rapid shift to larger, high powered modules raises, and how Jinko Solar and the industry more broadly is tackling these.

Optimizing ROI: How to profit from using modules with high-power and large wafers?

Manufacturers promise that using high-power modules with larger wafers reduces the LCOE and increases the ROI compared to standard solutions. However, what exactly makes up the cost structure? We will discuss this in our pv magazine Webinar in partnership with Seraphim Solar System, on the basis of a case study.

Why bigger is better when bifacial modules meet single-axis tracking in the APAC region

Australia’s large-scale solar segment has adopted the combination of bifacial modules with single-axis tracking – delivering on LCOE and power output during the times of the day when wholesale prices are high. With large-format modules now coming on the market, will the wider Asia-Pacific region follow suit?

Retos y oportunidades de la integración de módulos de alta potencia en proyectos a gran escala con sistemas de seguimiento

La serie de módulos Tiger PRO de JinkoSolar será analizada en un Webinar de pv magazine, en el cual se discutirá el valor añadido de los paneles de alta potencia para las plantas fotovoltaicas a gran escala.

Packed with Power: High-powered solutions for agile utility-scale solar projects

Utility-scale PV in Europe is set for rapid growth in 2021. But with opportunities come challenges, and new large scale solar markets are emerging in new regions and countries. This geographical expansion can mean complications when it comes to grid connection requirements, supply chain management, and system design and construction. Join this special pv magazine Webinar to hear from market analysts, technologists, and project financiers, to learn how the new generation of solar project components can unlock 2021’s market opportunities.

Risk vs. reward: Optimizing energy yield with 182mm wafers

The shift to larger wafer formats has been by far the most important trend in the PV supply chain over the past year. While other sizes are also being introduced to the market, the 182mm product is initially expected to represent the largest share. And it is viewed by many as the optimal way to ensure considerable gains in energy yield whist minimizing disruption to supply chain and end markets. We’ll delve into these claims surrounding modules based on the 182mm wafer, taking a closer look at Jinko’s Tiger pro module series.
