Intersolar AWARD 2019: Finalists announced

Post Time:Apr 12,2019Classify:Industry NewsView:964

High-performing, robust and efficient – the solutions presented by the finalists of the Intersolar AWARD 2019 make them worthy contenders for the prestigious prize, which honors pioneering technologies and services for the solar industry.

The submissions for the award span a wide range of technologies, from solar modules to inverters to substructures. The prizes will be awarded on May 15, 2019 at The smarter E Forum in hall B3, booth B3.570 as part of The smarter E Europe, Europe's largest platform for the energy industry.

The winners of the Intersolar AWARD and their products reflect the developments in the modern energy supply and motivate the industry to play an active part in shaping the energy future with groundbreaking innovations. The sector benefits from this – along with the winners – as the award attracts international attention from clients, partners and the trade press.


Higher performance and greater efficiency combined with a longer service life – those are the trends for solar modules in 2019. Product and performance warranties are extending for as long as 35 years, while modules are more resistant to linear degradation.

Cell technology is dominated by half-cut cell modules. Laminating bypass diodes into each cell minimizes shading loss and prevents hotspots when temperatures climb. High-performance monocrystalline n-type half-cut cells optimize bifacial glass-glass modules for use in power plants. Thin-film modules in CdTe technologies for power plants provide an output of 420 watts.

For inverters, the focus is on long service lives and improved maintenance strategies. Additional functions being implemented include characteristic curve analysis, multi MPP tracking, combination with performance optimizers, or connection to a battery. Interconnected technologies are increasingly enabling app-based services such as monitoring and system operation as well as smart home and smart grid applications

Planners developing substructures on industrial and commercial rooftops and verifying technical specifications can draw on professional CAD-based programs. Set-up is becoming simpler thanks to novel high-tech, age-resistant mounting systems using plastic material and a click-fit mechanism.

Installations are being tailored to individual buildings with solar roof tiles, trapezoid and triangular modules, and patterned transparent module front glass. And this green technology is becoming greener – special substructure systems are making it possible to generate solar energy on rooftops planted with vegetation.
