GCL System Integration Technology, a subsidiary of GCL, has been developing solar modules that utilize new technologies, specifically black silicon, PERC and diamond wiring. At SPI, the company showcased its latest products, including the Black Silicon 5 Busbar (5BB), Multi-Busbar (MBB) and Double-glass modules. The solar modules with these new technologies are all in a 72-cell format in each configuration.
“To differentiate from other solar energy companies, GCL-SI is able to provide high performance modules at a competitive price to the U.S. market due to the great advantage from integrated industrial chain of the GCL group,” explains Dong Shuguang, Executive President. “GCL-SI also offers design, product, service, finance, and operations as a whole.”
He further described that after their opening of a factory in Vietnam, the company is now able to provide 600 MW high-efficiency PERC modules to meet the requirements of the American market.
GCL-SI’s black silicon and PERC solar modules are based on multi-crystalline silicon. Dong adds that GCL-SI will maintain its focus on developing modules using multi-crystalline silicon, while continually researching more innovative ways to integrate black silicon, PERC and diamond wiring. The results will lead to lower costs and increase the efficiency of solar modules. If people are able to harness the full potential of the multi-crystalline material, that would ultimately contribute to broader adoption of solar energy by lowering the LCOE.
