Solar panels lead losses in supply chain this week as serious competition added to the mounting price tension in the regional solar markets. Amid the expanded capacity in SEA, top tier Asian solar panel makers can gain access to the US market without high tariff rates and are offering strategic price reductions in order to compete with the western rivals and tier-1 Chinese manufacturers for more market shares. Recently, Hanwha Q-cell has been the dominant player that fuels price competition over major solar markets in EU, Japan and most noticeably in the US. Therefore, as Chinese module makers are also forced to join the price war, solar panel prices in these regions are further driven down by such competition. Moreover, solar panel prices in EU and US are further pressured due to thinning trading ahead of the year-end holiday period.

New analysis reveals how and why the Fortune 500 buy wind energy
Solar panel price around the world extend the slump over the past few weeks amid simmering intensity over competition of global players and strong dollar. Recently, Hanwha Q-cell has been the dominant player in the price war in major solar markets US, EU and Japan. Particularly in the US, the solar panel price has deteriorated most noticeably amid fierce competition. Such attempts lead by Hanwha Q-cell also forces other major Asian module makers to slashing the prices as well, leading US solar panel price drastically lower and continue to renew the record low level. Meanwhile, solar panel prices in China and India are also trending downwards. In China, even as the demand is relatively solid, solar panel prices are dragged down by depreciation of RMB as well as strategic pricing in efforts to win project tenders. As for India, solar panel prices slump as following the downtrend of the rest of the world regardless of its solid demand growth.
1366 Technologies and Hanwha Q CELLS Achieve 19.6% Efficiency Using Direct Wafer® and Q.ANTUM Cell Technologies
The wafers were produced with 1366's current production furnaces in Bedford, MA and the cell fabrication was completed at Hanwha Q CELLS' Center for Technology Innovation and Quality in Thalheim, Germany.
Steven Petersen is project director of Solarize Financial, based just outside Charleston, South Carolina. When his business partner introduced him to Roof Tech products, he knew he had found a great solution for his residential customers. "Initially, I thought RT E Mount AIR® couldn't possibly be as strong as railed systems," he admits. "But the first time I used it, it became clear that E Mount AIR is far less intrusive on the roof, and doesn't compromise the integrity of the roof the way railed systems can." In the fall of 2016, Petersen had occasion to appreciate the real strength of E Mount AIR when a major meteorological event affected his region.
The record-breaking solar cell was fabricated on a large-sized boron-doped Cz-Si substrate with a low-cost industrial process of advanced PERC (Passivated Emitter and Rear Cell) technology that integrates back surface passivation, front surface advanced passivation and anti-LID (Light Induced Degradation) technologies. The 243.23 cm2 solar cell reached a total-area efficiency of 22.61%. This result has been independently confirmed by the Fraunhofer ISE CalLab in Germany.

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
