LONGi Solar, a leading manufacturer of monocrystalline high-performance modules, is a winner of the 2018 Solar + Power Award in the category Silicon Module for its innovative Hi-MO3 half-cut bifacial PERC module series.
The Solar + Power awards have been created to recognise the PV value chain and the people, products and services that will develop innovative manufacturing and product approaches that have the potential to change the way we live.
The winning module uses half-cut techniques to reduce the operating current of the cell by half, effectively reducing resistance losses and increasing power by 5 to 10 watts on average. Combined with bifacial technology, front-side power reaches 320 watts (60-cell). Under shaded conditions, Hi-MO3 yields more energy than a full-cell module array. The advantages of Hi-MO3 include lower hot spot temperature at all irradiation levels.
Technology leader for highly efficient PERC modules
"This award recognizes photovoltaic modules with particularly high efficiency that exceeds industry standards. That is why we are particularly honoured to receive this award," says Wenxue Li, President of LONGi Solar. "We are proud of our innovations that are driven by technology and advances in manufacturing. To remain the technology leader, we invest more than any other PV manufacturer in research and development."
