Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited (“Yingli ” or “Yingli Solar”) (NYSE: YGE), one of the world’s leading solar panel manufacturers, today announced that its PANDA Bifacial, Smart Hotspot Free, Black Silicon and many other products are displayed at PV JAPAN 2017 held on July 5, 2017 in Yokohama, Japan.
The PANDA Bifacial module is based on Yingli’s PANDA n-type monocrystalline solar cell, which can generate power on both the front and rear sides by leveraging reflected light in the environment. Therefore, the power yield of the PANDA Bifacial module could increase by up to 30% compared to a monofacial standard module. With a maximum system voltage of 1500 Volts (V), PANDA Bifacial module could improve system performance and help to reduce the balance-of-system costs.
In addition to its high-efficiency characteristic, PANDA Bifacial module has excellent performance to salt mist, ammonia or known PID risk factors. The special frame design makes it more suitable for the windy and snowy climate. Besides this, we also launch our PANDA Bifacial 144 half-cell module with greatly improved reliability. Thus, PANDA Bifacial module is the perfect choice in Japan in view of the tight land area there as well as the island`s climate and environment.
Yingli also shows Smart Hotspot Free module at PV JAPAN 2017, which is the first company to announce this module. The Hotspot Free technology is based on a concept where each cell is protected by a bypass diode. In any case that the current of a single cell doesn’t match to the rest of the string, e.g. because that cell is shaded, the bypass diode will be activated and will ensure that the rest of the cells can still work properly and avoid that the affected cell is heated up. Besides being safe, less heat also means less stress for the materials, prolonging the lifespan of the whole module, which improves performance ratio and increases yield for the investors.
Apart from PANDA Bifacial and Smart Hotspot Free modules, Yingli exhibits the Black Silicon module. The Black Silicon module uses new cell technology to make the cell absorb more light, which will greatly reduce light reflection and then increase the cell efficiency up to 19.4%. The power output of black silicon 72 cell module can reach up to 340W. Besides this, it also has a good-appearance which can greatly satisfy customer’s architecture aesthetics demands.
“Thanks to Yingli’s continuous efforts in R&D and pioneering innovations, these high efficient modules could be brought to the public. They are not only safe and reliable, but also are able to generate high returns, which could meet the increasing demand of our customers. We will work hard to promote and sell these modules all over Japan,” commented YAMAMOTO JOJI, Managing Director of Yingli Green Energy Japan.
