DuPont, JinkoSolar Join Forces to Launch High-Efficiency Bifacial Module with Transparent Backsheet

Further, this bifacial panel ‘Swan’ will be the latest addition to JinkoSolar’s Cheetah premium range.

DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions, together with JinkoSolar Holding unveiled the new Jinko high-efficiency bifacial module “Swan” protected by clear DuPont™ Tedlar® PVF film-based backsheet.

Further, this bifacial panel ‘Swan’ will be the latest addition to JinkoSolar’s Cheetah premium range.

The company further claimed that, “with a combination of high-efficiency Cheetah bifacial cells and clear DuPont™ Tedlar® PVF film, Swan can achieve a high-power output of up to 400W in the front side and up to 20 percent energy gain from the rear side.”

Leveraging clear DuPont backsheet materials, Swan can produce the same power output level as dual-glass bifacial module with lighter weight, easier installation and 30 years power warranty, it added.

In addition, bifacial panels with transparent backsheet can efficiently reduce the overall system installation cost, as lower weight reduces cost related to mounting and module installation, compared with dual-glass bifacial module with frame, bringing higher IRR and lower LCOE for bifacial module photovoltaic (PV) projects.

Both the companies have been in close collaboration for some time.

Commenting on the development, DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions, PV Global Business Director, Eric Wang said, “The two companies adhere to a common philosophy of excellence, quality and innovation, and strive to promote the continuous improvement of solar panel power output and durability.”

“We are honored to work with JinkoSolar to launch the high-efficiency bifacial module protected by clear Tedlar® PVF film based backsheet. We look forward to supporting JinkoSolar in leading the competitive and technology advantages with DuPont’s backsheet materials with long-term field-proven performance, research and innovation capabilities, and jointly promote the sustainable development in the solar industry,” Wang added.

With the iterative development of bifacial power generation technology, bifacial modules are gradually becoming one of the mainstream industrial applications. The clear backsheet materials can meet the requirements of light-transmittance, weather-resistance and ultraviolet-resistance for bifacial solar panels.
