3 out of 10 Finalists of InterSolar Photovoltaic Award in 2020 Are PV Manufacturers

The presentation of the InterSolar Photovoltaic Award 2020 winners takes place as part of the smarter E Europe on June 30, 2020 (3:00 pm-4:00 pm). It will live at the virtual AWARD Ceremony due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is worth mentioning that 3 out 10 finalists of the Photovoltaic Award 2020 are PV manufacturers including Jinko Solar, Trina Solar, and REC.

Jinko Solar

One of the leading ‘Solar Module Super League’ (SMSL) members, JinkoSolar has received the Intersolar Award 2019 for its Swan bifacial module with a transparent back sheet developed by DuPont. The Jinko Solar’s Cheetah bifacial half-cut cell technology, as well as novel utilization of transparent back sheet, making it significantly lighter than glass-glass modules. This year, they have come up with their Tiger Pro model which is one of the most powerful modules with more than 500 W output power. 

According to the E Smart, in the Tiger Pro N-type module with Tiling Ribbon technology, the cells within each string are extremely close together, ensuring a smooth appearance. The Tiger module has an efficiency rating of 21.6%.

Trina Solar

Similar to the Jinko Solar, Trina Solar has been entered into the finalist list of Photovoltaic Award 2020 due to its Vertex module with higher output power for its module as well. Trina Solar is achieved by 50 solar cells with a larger wafer size with a side length of 210 mm. The wafers – which are just 70 to 80 percent larger than the current standard – are produced using three-piece, non-destructive cutting. Together with the extremely small inter-cell gap of 0.5 millimeters, this allows the Vertex to achieve 21 percent efficiency, according to the E Smart.


REC’s Alpha series is one of the most powerful panels in the 60-cell and 72-cell format PV modules. The reasons behind the choosing of the jury are 21.7% efficiency and a temperature coefficient of just 0.26% per degree Celsius. In REC’s PV module reduced lead content by 81% and bringing a completely lead-free PV module.
