Utility-scale TOPCon – Financial & field performance analysis
By the end of this year, analysts expect to see more than 50 GW of PV cell and module capacity devoted to n-type tunnel oxide passivated contact (TOPCon) products, representing a significant and rapidly growing market share.
As these products are deployed in utility-scale PV projects in larger numbers, investors are keen to see how they live up to claims of significant improvements over their p-type PERC counterparts – from better bifaciality and stronger performance at high temperatures to longer working lifetimes and lower degradation rates.
JinkoSolar is among the largest movers into n-type so far, expecting to dedicate a significant chunk of its cell and module capacity to the technology in the next couple of years. Carlos Magistris, Senior Manager Technical Service at JinkoSolar Europe will join the webinar to provide an overview of the technology behind the Tiger NEO TOPCon module and the advantages it promises to utility scale solar projects.
Roger Chen, PV power plant engineer at TÜV Rheinland Greater China will also be on hand to discuss the findings from a recent TÜV Rheinland project study analyzing the difference in economic performance (IRR and LCOE) between Tiger Neo N-type TOPCon and 210 PERC bifacial in Australia.
Additionally, we’ll hear from Hyeon-jo Lee, Head of Investment at Vietnam-based developer Inpos, with a look at the most important concerns when it comes to module selection. And Shyam Yadav, Founder and MD of Clenergize Solar Consultants will share details of some LCOE and IRR simulations for projects in the MENA region.
