Canadian Solar’s TOPCon series modules receive new IEC standard certification: Solar PV manufacturer Canadian Solar has announced that its TOPCon series modules have received the new IEC61215-2021/IEC 61730-2023 standard PV module certification from VDE. The company says that it is the world’s first company to be certified for the new version of standard tests. The certification is said to further validate the company’s TOPCon series for use in a variety of complex applications. Canadian Solar also said that its photovoltaic testing laboratory has undergone strict audits and it meets the new standards.
UtmoLight large-size perovskite modules achieve 19.5% steady-state efficiency: Solar technology company Wuxi UtmoLight has announced that its 810.1 cm² large-size perovskite module has achieved a steady-state efficiency of 19.5%. The company says that it has been certified by JET, an international testing organization. It surpassed the 18.6% set by Panasonic in June of this year, a record that was held for 3 years. Recently, UtmoLight announced that its 1200 mm x 600 mm commercial perovskite module had received IEC 61215 and IEC 61730 standard certification from TÜV SÜD (see China Solar PV News Snippets).
Risen Energy signs global cooperation MoU with OSW: Risen Energy has announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for global cooperation with the Australian solar and storage integrator OSW. The 2 parties had signed a 1 GW heterojunction PV module supply agreement in June of this year. The MoU was signed at a recent event titled China (Zhejiang) – Australia (Victoria) Trade and Investment Talks, held in Melbourne.
Last month, Risen Energy released data to indicate that its HJT modules generated 5.13% higher power per Watt compared to PERC (see China Solar PV News Snippets).
Shanghai Electric receives 1st batch of equipment for HJT cell & module fab: SPIC owned Shanghai Electric Power Co. has announced that it has received the first batch of equipment for the initial phase of its high-efficiency PV cell & module facility. The fab will be operated under the company’s subsidiary Hengxi Solar and is located in Haimen District, Nantong City, Jiangsu Province. The initial phase aims to achieve 4.8 GW capacity for high-efficiency heterojunction (HJT) cells and modules, with an initial stage capacity of 1.2 GW. The equipment included in this first batch, such as the PECVD main equipment and its automation facilities, constitutes the core equipment for the production of HJT wafers.
Mingr plans to enter PV EPC construction services and BOO projects through subsidiary: Well-known jewelry brand Mingr has announced its intention to diversify its business operations by establishing a subsidiary in the area of photovoltaics. The company said that it will invest RMB 10 million ($1.40 million) in a wholly-owned subsidiary, aimed at creating new avenues for profit growth and improve sustainable development capabilities. Once operational, the new company will engage in Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contracting services for PV power plants and will also pursue the Build-Own-Operate (BOO) model for the construction and ownership of 3 power stations.
