Bosch Solar Energy with innovative new products in module portfolio
Bosch Solar Energy will be attending this year's European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC) with several new product highlights in its module portfolio.
Bosch Solar Energy is using the EU PVSEC to premiere products like a new crystalline module consisting of sixty high-performance monocrystalline cells. This module offers over 260 watts of output and an efficiency rating of 15.84 percent. These characteristics have been verified by the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE) in Freiburg, Germany. The performance improvements come thanks to several key success factors: first, the panel contains the latest generation of Bosch solar cells based on a selective emitter. In addition, the optical and electrical losses are reduced by the use of a 'light harvesting string' as well as by further optimized components. The high-performance modules are expected to hit the market in the fourth quarter of this year.
Bosch Solar Energy is also taking advantage of the EU PVSEC to launch the Bosch Solar Module CIS EU2111, a CIS thin film solar module. The module type is produced at the company's Brandenburg an der Havel plant and is built around a semiconductor composed of copper, indium, gallium, sulfur, and selenium. The CIS modules come in the 58, 61 and 64 watt power classes and are also noteworthy for their attractive design and high workmanship. At just 10.5 kilograms and a compact 120 x 50 cm, the modules are easy to mount. That makes the CIS solar modules from Bosch perfectly suited for architectonically challenging photovoltaic solutions and facade systems.
You can find these and more forward-looking cell and module concepts at the Bosch Solar Energy stand in Hall B6, Stand C32.
Bosch Solar Energy AG is part of the business division Solar Energy of the Bosch Group and a leading supplier of photovoltaic products. From small plants for single-family homes to finished large-scale photovoltaic projects: Bosch Solar Energy offers high-quality solar cells and modules for producing electrical energy from sunlight. Bosch Solar Energy also handles the construction of solar parks from the planning and implementation to the handover of the ready-to-use plant. The division employees a total of roughly 3,000 people.
