Balancing cost and efficiency for a guaranteed LCOE reduction
In recent years, the industry has been chasing higher and higher efficiency, and lower production costs. However, with current cell technologies, efficiency-boosting innovations are increasingly hard to come by. This is leading the industry to focus on other ways to improve module efficiency and lower project investment.
In this pv magazine Webinar with initiative partner Seraphim, we are going to discuss balancing module efficiency and cost. We have invited Terry Jin, Technical Director at Seraphim Solar, to talk about the optical and electrical advantages of 9 busbar cells, reduced shading, mismatch loss, and bifacial power gains in Seraphim’s newest product.
With new data, Jin will demonstrate how these improvements increase module power outputs and how the CAPEX of solar projects, as well as the LCOE, will decrease markedly.
Through flexible application demonstrations and operation simulations in varied locations like Europe, Asia, and the Americas this pv magazine webinar will illustrate the potential for these module-level innovations to positively impact LCOE.
As our second guest we invited Pedro Magalhães, Director Global Engineering and R&D at Arctech Solar to share their practical experience in using Seraphim’s new module in combination with their tracker. He will discuss how their tracker relies on three fixed points for increased stability. Magalhães will also illustrate how the tracker’s built-in artificial intelligence controller can boost overall power generation, maximizing energy output at the PV plant level.
Join this pv magazine Webinar to learn how to balance efficiency and cost as well as improve energy yield at system level.
- How can you balance increases in both cost and efficiency?
- Discussion of new findings on the improvement of module power output
- How the right combination of module and tracker can improve energy yield
Questions can be submitted beforehand or during the webinar through a chat window. Mark Hutchins, Global editor at pv magazine, will be the moderator of this pv magazine Webinar.
