Intersolar 2014: Trina Solar presents smart solutions for rooftop solar systems
Market demands high-performance and cost-efficient
Munich, 19th of May 2014 - Trina Solar Limited (TSL), a global leader in photovoltaic modules,
solutions, and services, will be presenting its products and solutions for
rooftop PV systems at its booth (Hall A1.290) at this year’s Intersolar Europe.
This includes a special feature of the integrated power optimiser Trinasmart,
as well as the high-performance Honey M module series and the Quadmax module
with its smaller format. Moreover, Trina Solar will grant insight into its
latest research and development highlights, including both its world record Honey
Ultra module and the high efficiency interdigitated back contact solar cell, which
Trina Solar only recently reported.
Profitability and efficiency are key
priorities for the PV industry, particularly in light of declining incentive
schemes. Consequently, Trina Solar’s products and services address these
requirements. Trinasmart, for example, allows for the automatic monitoring and
management of PV systems at module level, while maximising output with a
module-integrated optimiser and enabling first-class fire protection. Installers
benefit from fast and easy installation as well as full flexibility at the time
of selecting an inverter; all this supports their business. In combination with
its Honey M and Quadmax modules, Trina Solar offers a cost-efficient and high-performance
product portfolio particularly well-suited for rooftop solar systems.
DC05A Honey M modules are characterised by
their high performance, even under low light conditions, and are an aesthetic
fit for residential roofs. They are available with either a white or a black
back sheet. The square cells of the DC80.08 Quadmax modules maximise the
module’s energy generating surface by 8% over conventional mono modules,
increasing the total output of the modules. At the same time, its smaller
dimensions allow optimum use of precious roof space.
Additionally, the Dual Glass module TSM-PDG5, with its robust frameless design,
is another part of Trina Solar’s product portfolio. Thanks to its durability Trina
Solar offers an extended 30-year linear power warranty with this product.
Besides the company’s current product
portfolio, Chief Scientist Pierre Verlinden will also present the latest
innovations, developed by Trina Solar’s State Key Laboratory of PV Science and Technology. This includes the new high-efficiency Honey Ultra module, which is
based on Trina Solar’s Honey technology and has achieved a world record
performance of 326.3W, documented by TÜV Rheinland. In cooperation with the
Australian National University (ANU) and the Solar Energy Research Institute of
Singapore (SERIS), Trina Solar has also developed a highly-efficient interdigitated
back contact silicon solar cell which has delivered an efficiency of 24.4%,
putting it among the most efficient solar cells to date.
Ben Hill, President at Trina Solar Europe, comments: “PV has established
itself as a competitive source of energy in Germany and in other markets, but to
harness the full potential of PV systems, they have to be cost efficient and perform
to a high standard. We are looking forward to presenting products and solutions
at this year’s Intersolar Europe that will benefit installers and operators
alike and will maximise the output generated from solar energy.”
