Fewer microcracks thanks to HIT technology?

We are currently seeing more and more heterojunction modules coming onto the market. So we asked Panasonic, the pioneer of this technology, to focus on reasons why HIT modules last longer and yield more than standard modules, and to explain the pros and cons.

Improving the output and lifetime of PV through cost effective cooling

Integrating cost effective cooling methods in module manufacturing to increase module output and lifetime

According to Simon Meijer, CEO of COOLBACK Company, and our webinar partner, up to 10% of output and up to 20% of lifetime is lost through this excess of heat in the PV module; this is by far the biggest impediment to improving output – far greater than reflection, dust or humidity. If this is the case, should module manufacturers be taking a closer look at heat losses, and looking at ways to improve output by thermal management? And can asset managers, EPCs and investors improve their solar projects output and lifetime with effective heat management?

Solar design for new construction: Opportunities and challenges

As a new market emerges due to the growing demand for solar on new buildings, contractors and installers need new design and sales processes to effectively serve this sector. This webinar, in partnership with Aurora Solar, will showcase how contractors can overcome the challenges of designing PV systems for new residential and commercial buildings. Policy […]

Safety through module electronics? SMA advises less is more

Do residents and firefighters gain heightened security from additional solar module shutdown facilities, like Module Level Power Electronics (MLPE), or would they fare better without them? And if MLPE are used, how can they be made safer? Despite TÜV Rheinland finding that fire safety is sufficient and Fraunhofer ISE stating that current PV systems are […]

Emergency power supply – what are we really talking about? Is it a ‘full home backup’, or something else?

What is emergency power, what is ‘full home backup’, and what is the difference between the two? Additionally, what do different homeowners need and how do you install an emergency power or ‘full home backup’ system? These questions will be answered during the next pv magazine Australia webinar – hosted in partnership with SMA. The webinar will dive into what […]

Is residential battery storage becoming a “no brainer” in Australia?

Is residential battery storage becoming a “no brainer” in Australia? Australian solar analysts tip the residential storage market to see 10,000 units installed this year. In 2018, that is likely to triple to 30,000 electrical storage systems. Why is solar+storage becoming such a compelling proposition for the market? And what is it that will set […]

Why size matters. How correctly proportioning a storage system can pay off for Australian households and installers

The Australian distributed storage market is taking off. With well over 7,000 systems having installed in the first six months of 2017, the full year looks set for 15,000, with that potentially growing to in excess of 25,000 in 2018. However, sizing a system for Australian household requirements is key to maximizing the utility of […]
