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

View Webinar Video

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.

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.

In this pv magazine Webinar, produced in partnership with Jinko Solar, we’ll delve into these claims surrounding modules based on the 182mm wafer, taking a closer look at Jinko’s Tiger pro module series. We’ll demonstrate how the Tiger pro achieves savings of more than 2 cents per watt over the previous generation of PV modules, and why it offers the most effective strategy in terms overall investment cost and rate of return. We’ll also take a look at the market dynamics driving PV this year, and examine the technologies and strategies likely to come out on top.

Last year saw a major shift in PV technology, with a raft of new products announced based on new, larger formats for silicon wafer. As 2021 gets underway and the modules based on these head into mass production, and begin to be installed in the field, the solar industry is keenly awaiting feedback on the performance of these modules, and further information on the most effective strategies at module level to integrate these larger format wafers.

We’ll examine the latest market trends across supply chain. PV InfoLink Chief Analyst Corrine Lin will take us through what we can expect to see in 2021 – as products based on new, larger wafer formats begin to roll off production lines in significant quantity, and the market gains new insight into optimal cost/performance strategies, both in manufacturing and further downstream.

With its latest series of PV modules, the Tiger Pro, Jinko Solar has integrated the 182mm wafer alongside other cutting edge technologies, and promises an impressive 40% gain in power output over earlier conventional PV modules. During the webinar, Waleed Alhallaj, Business Development Manager for the Middle East and North Africa at Jinko Solar, will demonstrate the Tiger Pro’s potential for higher yields, and how this allows it to achieve savings of more than two cents per watt when it comes to balance of systems costs.

We’ll also hear why Jinko Solar products based on 182mm as the most effective strategy for the solar industry, offering the highest gain in energy yield for the lowest technology risk.

Questions can be submitted beforehand or during the webinar through a chat window. Mark Hutchins from pv magazine will be the moderator of this webinar.

Registration for this pv magazine Webinar is free of charge.
