Moderated by TaiyangNews’ technology head Shravan Chunduri, the discussion panel of the TaiyangNews Reliable PV Module Design Virtual Conference deliberated on measures to ensure reliability for modules with high efficiency cell architectures.
According to PVEL’s Tristan Erion-Lorico, if the modules offer high reliability and are built to last 40 years or 50 years, it would mean we need to make less number of modules and we don’t have to recycle more modules either. This should contribute directly to lowering carbon footprint of the PV industry. Hence reliability should be a top priority for module manufacturers.
JA Solar’s Jerry Sun felt there should be more talk about recyclability aspect as it would encourage manufacturers to design their products with the end in sight.
HiUV’s Peter Peng stressed that to make a high-quality product using new age cell architectures as TOPCon and HJT, focus should be on making these products reliable so the future installations are long-lasting.
The TaiyangNews Reliable PV Module Design Virtual Conference took place on 14 December 2022. The Conference brought together stakeholders from different parts of the module manufacturing chain to discuss the latest findings on how to make high-quality solar panels that stand the test of time.
