27.04.2021 / 06:41
At a web based product premiere on its web site and social media channels, Meyer Burger Technology Ltd will unveil its new high-performance photo voltaic modules at the moment at 3 p.m. (CEST, April 27, 2021). A recording will likely be obtainable after the net premiere on the corporate’s web site in addition to on Meyer Burger’s YouTube and Facebook channels. Three patent-protected product variants will likely be offered, all of which manufactured utilizing the proprietary heterojunction/SmartWire know-how within the firm’s personal manufacturing services in Germany.
According to the tenet “The best. From here. For tomorrow”, Meyer Burger is setting new business requirements with its new photo voltaic modules when it comes to efficiency, origin and sustainability. “We optimize our solar modules for maximum energy yield. They bring decisive differences compared to conventional products,” mentioned Moritz Borgmann, chargeable for international gross sales and advertising as Managing Director of Meyer Burger (Industries) GmbH. “The next-generation solar cells, which we interconnect with our proprietary SmartWire interconnection technology, enable our customers to achieve up to 20 percent higher energy yield on the same roof area.” The considerably greater power yield over the service life is enabled by a top-class module conversion effectivity of as much as 21.8 %. On prime, Meyer Burger’s modules produce considerably extra power from every watt-peak. For instance, the modules lose solely little or no efficiency because of excessive temperature, low-light situations or non-perpendicular incidence of sunshine.
Borgmann famous that there’s just one product function wherein the corporate is following the usual: “We achieve this industry-leading energy yield and up to 400 watt-peak module power without having to make the modules ever larger, as our competitors do. This allows installers to make the most of their customers’ roofs and to work with modules of familiar size and manageable weight.”
The firm initially affords the three product variants Meyer Burger White, Black and Glass within the rooftop marketplace for residential and small industrial clients. Meyer Burger photo voltaic modules function a homogeneous “full cell” look, although half cells are used. Due to the proprietary SmartWire interconnection know-how, the “Meyer Burger Black” specifically seems uniformly black. The heterojunction/SmartWire know-how additionally successfully prevents so-called “microcracks”, a significant reason for ubiquitous efficiency degradation. In addition, Meyer Burger employs a particular backsheet that considerably will increase the robustness and sturdiness of the modules and thus additionally their lifetime power yield. All variants subsequently exhibit superior longevity, underpinned with efficiency ensures of greater than 92 % for the “Meyer Burger White” and “Meyer Burger Black” after 25 years, and much more than 93 % for the particularly strong “Meyer Burger Glass” after 30 years. This module with a clear glass again is bifacial, which signifies that gentle captured on the bottom can also be transformed into electrical energy. The module units a document for the best bifacial output of a photo voltaic module ever produced in quantity, with a so-called bifaciality issue of 90 %. The panel achieves a mixed output of over 430 watt-peak at commonplace measurement situations (BSTC). A particular, proprietary “gapless” cell association additionally makes splendid use of the module’s floor space, which moreover will increase the power yield.
Meyer Burger depends on merchandise “from here”, with its personal know-how, developed at its Swiss and German websites. As a consequence, the corporate additionally has a short-, medium- and long-term roadmap that safeguards its know-how management in the long run. Both the photo voltaic cells and modules are manufactured in vegetation within the coronary heart of Europe. The ensuing proximity to clients – finish clients, installers and wholesalers – is a singular differentiator for Meyer Burger. The firm additionally strives to arrange its provide chains regionally to the best extent attainable. Already at the moment, all the silicon used in addition to different parts are sourced from Europe. Meyer Burger is thus additionally contributing to Europe’s strategic independence in the important thing know-how of photovoltaics and to the resilience of provide chains.
Meyer Burger’s merchandise are geared toward clients who take into consideration “tomorrow” additionally on the subject of photo voltaic modules and who connect nice significance to sustainability. The modules are manufactured in response to the best social and environmental requirements, as evidenced, amongst different issues, by a considerable grant from the federal state of Saxony-Anhalt, Germany, for considerably extra environmentally pleasant manufacturing in comparison with at the moment’s established manufacturing applied sciences. Meyer Burger’s vegetation in Germany draw one hundred pc of their electrical power from renewable sources. What’s extra, the modules are all freed from poisonous lead and subsequently already compliant with the European RoHS Regulation (Directive 2011/65/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 8 June 2011 on the restriction of the usage of sure hazardous substances in electrical and digital tools), for which the photovoltaic business at the moment enjoys a short lived exemption. Furthermore, Meyer Burger is striving for an answer for nearly full recycling of the modules, contributing to the round economic system.
For the gross sales of its new high-efficiency photo voltaic modules, Meyer Burger is working with main worldwide distributors, together with: BayWa r.e., IBC Solar, KdiSolar, Krannich Solar, Memodo, Solarmarkt, Solen Energy Europe and Sonepar Germany. Meyer Burger thus achieves protection of its focus markets of Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the Benelux area, Italy, France, Poland, the UK, the Nordic international locations and the USA. Further distribution companions will be discovered on www.meyerburger.com and can moreover be introduced within the coming weeks. Installers can order from the companions as of now, with supply of the primary modules beginning earlier than the tip of July 2021. Private and industrial finish clients occupied with Meyer Burger’s photo voltaic modules can discover specialist companions and installers at www.meyerburger.com or within the new Meyer Burger app, which is obtainable for obtain within the app shops (iOS and Android) and affords extra companies round Meyer Burger’s photo voltaic modules, together with a photo voltaic calculator, an installer listing for finish clients and an installer space. Meyer Burger will proceed to develop its digital companies for its clients sooner or later.
Meyer Burger is repeatedly rising its gross sales and advertising group. From May on, Meyer Burger will moreover strengthen its administration workforce with a photo voltaic gross sales professional well-known out there: Sven Stoffers will report back to Managing Director Moritz Borgmann as Head of Sales and will likely be chargeable for Meyer Burger’s gross sales actions worldwide excluding the USA. Sven Stoffers has a few years of expertise in build up gross sales organizations and efficiently promoting photo voltaic modules. Following main gross sales roles at SolarWorld AG, he served most just lately as Head of Sales for the DACH area at photo voltaic module producer Hanwha Q CELLS.
The new manufacturing services in Bitterfeld-Wolfen and Freiberg will likely be opened on the finish of May and can then progressively begin mass manufacturing. In the primary part, a nominal annual capability of 400 MW will likely be arrange, to be expanded to five GW by 2026.
Product premiere on-line: The product premiere will be watched and additional data is obtainable from at the moment (April 27, 3 p.m. CEST) on the web site www.meyerburger.com and Meyer Burger’s channels on YouTube and Facebook. The English-language product premiere will begin at 3:30 p.m.
