Residential PERC solar panel list as part of PERC technology roadmap

Last night I read the @TaiyangNews - 'PERC Solar Cell Technology 2018' presentation. Part of the document included a great list of the leading PERC solar panels. The broader document paints a wonderful picture of the different potential technology pathways of PERC solar cells. Seems like PERC based solar cells will hit almost 50% of global sales this year, and it might hold onto its position of leading technology from the upcoming, higher efficiency heterojunction because it has a few more pathways to squeeze more efficiency from the solar cells at such amazing pricing. PERC cells have peaked at 23.9% efficiency…

20GW of new silicon manufacturing capacity – LONGi vs GCL Poly arms race

20GW of silicon manufacturing is not trivial. Global volume installed last year was ~98GW. Adding 20% of capacity is big. What's really interesting is that GCL-Poly and LONGi are ramping up some serious competition! And that is really exciting - because two companies with ego fighting each other helps us all. (more…)
