Module Technology

Powering the future with NEO n-type TOPCon

Recent years have seen PV manufacturers edge closer to the limits in conversion efficiency that can be achieved with the currently mainstream p-type PERC technology. In the push for ever-improving cell and module performance, many are now looking to bring TOPCon and other n-type cell technologies into mainstream production. In this pv magazine Webinar, we take a closer look at JinkoSolar’s latest Tiger NEO product range, and examine the recent developments with n-type products and their proven potential to keep efficiency figures rising, and the cost of PV energy falling.

Can N-type modules conquer the project market?

Join this pv magazine Webinar to learn about the factors that have led to JinkoSolar’s decision to switch to N-type cells, Jinko’s N-type expansion plans, planned products, and the company’s transition strategy.

Competitive and sustainable: The future of back contact technology

In this pv magazine Webinar we’ll examine the latest developments in back-contact manufacturing, and the materials that go into these modules. Viewers will see why the numbers are beginning to stack up for back-contact, in comparison to multi-busbar and other conventional module technologies. We’ll also hear why the materials and processes used in back-contact manufacturing, when chosen and monitored properly of course, can lead to big improvements on the sustainability side.

Sustainable solar supply chains: returning cell-to-module PV manufacturing to Europe

In this pv magazine Webinar, we will learn about Meyer Burger’s vision for Made-in-Europe PV and how the renaissance of a vertically integrated PV manufacturing ecosystem can create jobs and value across Europe. We will also look at advantages relevant for installers and consumers.

Module wind load resistance: Standards vs. reality

With extreme weather events becoming all too common, and a growing list of PV projects that have been damaged or destroyed by strong winds, ensuring that mounting structures are able to withstand the pressures they’ll face in the field is a vital concern for all involved. In this pv magazine Webinar, we’ll examine where current testing standards may fall short, and what this means for suppliers of trackers and mounting structures. And we’ll also be treated to a closer look at Gamechange Solar’s testing program, which takes into account the different pressure gradients across a module’s surface in a high wind environment; and ensures ample wind resistance.

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.
