Yingli Green Energy Holding Co.’s PANDA Bifacial modules, which just received China General Certification, received another honor from the Top Runner Program — the Chinese Technology Innovation Award for 2016. This was announced during the 2016 Innovation Conference of Top Runner Program of China held in early January 2017.
“We are glad to see that our PANDA Bifacial module continues to gain industry and market recognition, demonstrating its high quality and technology leadership,” commented Dr. Dengyuan Song, Chief Technology Officer of Yingli. “Yingli will always commit to technology innovation in order to reduce the cost of solar power generation and make solar electricity affordable and accessible for all.”
PANDA Bifacial module details
The PANDA Bifacial module is based on Yingli’s PANDA n-type monocrystalline solar cell, which can generate power not only from the front side, but also from the rear side by leveraging reflected light in the environment. Therefore, the power yields of the PANDA Bifacial module can be increased by up to 30% compared to the situation when it only generates from the front side. With a maximum system voltage of 1500 Volts (V), PANDA Bifacial module can improve system performance and help to reduce the balance-of-system costs by up to 25%.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
