JinkoSolar Modules LCA Certifified by TUV Rheinland China (Int'l.)
JinkoSolar
Date: 2021-08-09
Shangrao, China-headquartered global solar energy specialist JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. reports it has received the first PV module LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) certificate in the Greater China region issued by TUV Rheinland (China) Ltd. The LCA certified modules are monocrystalline mainstream modules, with a total of 6 series and 43 sub-models.

The LCA certificate issued by TUV Rheinland is an important foundation for the Italian EPD certification. Based on the requirements of ISO 14040/ISO 14044, it adopts a life cycle assessment method focusing on environmental impact such as global warming potential, from raw material mining to the production of silicon wafers, cells, modules, upstream and downstream transportation, power station construction, operation and maintenance to final dismantling and disposal, and comprehensively evaluates and demonstrates multiple environmental impacts of JinkoSolar's photovoltaic products throughout their life cycle index.

Combining the world's carbon neutrality commitments and China's domestic 30/60 decarbonization goal, this certification can help companies fulfill their pledges on carbon emissions reduction through recognizing product low-carbon design, optimized energy management systems, and energy efficiency improvements, social responsibility for emissions and ecological impact, and achieve the ultimate goals of energy-saving and emissions reduction.

JinkoSolar has 9 production facilities and 22 subsidiaries globally and a vertically integrated solar product value chain, with an integrated annual capacity of 22 GW for mono wafers, 11.5 GW for solar cells, and 31 GW for solar modules, as of March 31, 2021.

Trina Touts PERC Module Aperture Efficiency (Int'l. Report)
Trina Solar
Date: 2021-07-02
Changzhou, China-based solar energy giant Trina Solar's State Key Laboratory of Photovoltaic Science and Technology (SKL) is reporting its proprietary Vertex high-efficiency p-type monocrystalline silicon module -- based on 66 pcs of 210 mm x 210 mm high-efficiency PERC cells -- has achieved a record aperture module efficiency of 23.03 pct for larger-area industrial silicon p-type modules, as independently confirmed by TUV Rheinland.

Trina researchers developed a new Multi-Musbar (MBB) technology to improve optical shading, and developed a new hybrid soldering technology to minimize the gap between cells, greatly improving the module efficiency, with solar cells from the production lines of 210 mm high efficiency PERC cells.

Huawei World Energy Storage Standards Certified (Int'l. Report)
Huawei
Date: 2021-06-04
Shanghai-headquartered global information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices provider Huawei reports its smart string energy storage system (ESS) for residential use, the LUNA2000, has scored 2PfG 2511 energy storage standard certification from German testing and certification service provider TUV Rheinland.

The TUV Rheinland standars cover most of the safety risks involved with energy storage systems, and set rigorous technical requirements and test conditions in terms of electrical safety, battery safety, electromagnetic compatibility, functional safety, energy management, transportation safety, and environmental impact.

The LUNA2000 series (LUNA2000-15-S0, LUNA2000-10-S0, LUNA2000-5-S0), designed to be a modular system, focuses on the functional safety of its electrical, battery, performance, BMS, EMS, and thermal management components. As such, the series are adaptable to a wide range of users and markets. Huawei's LUNA2000 product series not only satisfies the requirements of German and other EU markets, but are eligible to enter other markets in the world.
