“Soitec’s new module, which is already in industrial volume production, has the highest efficiency of any commercial product available for multi-megawatt installations,” the company noted in a press release.
“Using an optimized anti-reflective coating, Soitec’s CX-M500 module increases nominal peak power output over previous generations from 2,335 Wp to 2,450 Wp. The new module has been certified according to the International Electrotechnical Commission‘s (IEC)and Underwriters Laboratories‘ (UL) standards (IEC 62108, IEC 62688, UL 62108 and UL SU 8703), confirming that it meets product safety, performance and reliability requirements in both the US and European markets.”
Soitec is bullish that it will soon achieve even greater efficiencies.
Amonix actually holds the record for CPV module efficiency (36%), but those modules are not being mass produced.
