REC believes this will be the world’s most powerful solar panel for rooftop customers, emerging from the company’s half-cut cell technology.
REC Group, one of the largest European solar panels manufacturer, has launched a new solar panel at the Intersolar Europe. The new panel combines heterojunction cells (HJT) with advanced connection technology from the joint development partner Meyer Burger.
REC believes this will be the world’s most powerful solar panel for rooftop customers, emerging from the company’s half-cut cell technology. The new product comes one year after the highly sought-after REC N-Peak solar panel out of REC’s innovation labs, and only a few months after the production start of monocrystalline panels based on REC’s multiple-award-winning TwinPeak technology.
REC CEO Steve O’Neil said, “Our new flagship product will deliver significantly better power density and will fundamentally change the competitive balance between REC and Tier 1 players, opening up a big power gap far beyond what is available today.
With the HJT cell technology, it becomes easier to combine the benefits of crystalline silicon solar cells with those of thin film technologies for much higher efficiency and electricity yield. Enabling the manufacture of panels even at lower temperatures.
REC’s collaboration partner for this new solar panel is Swiss PV technology leader Meyer Burger. And its evolutionary SmartWire (SWCT) cell connection technology, which maximises the energy yield of HJT solar modules.
