PV ModuleTech 2020 will return to Penang, Malaysia on 28-29 October. The conference will directly follow PV CellTech (which has been moved to 26-27 October due to COVID-19) in the same venue, The Hotel Equatorial. Once again the agenda sessions and topics will focus on the key global issues today in terms of module technology, quality, and reliability – specific to large-scale module purchasing decisions over the next 12-18 months.
Module technology offerings are changing at a rapid pace, with half-cut cells, shingled arrangements, PERC and bifacial types now appearing on reliability and bankability listings for site investors. Higher-efficiency and power ratings are also appearing as new n-type variants are being pitched at developers and EPCs. Finally, new materials used in module assembly – both on the front and rear side of modules – are coming to the market, lowering assembly costs, adding reliability, and assisting during site construction.
In addition to hearing from the leading global companies spanning the module value-chain (from production to supply, across materials and technology, inclusive of testing, inspection and quality auditing), PV ModuleTech 2020 will also feature an invaluable update from the PV-Tech market research team on their ongoing supplier rating analysis that will assist any module buyers/users to fully understand the supply landscape on offer going forward.
