Canadian Solar Inc. announced it will introduce the global launch of its next generation solar modules at Intersolar Europe which will be held from June 20 - 22, 2018 in Munich, Germany. The Company's Chairman and CEO Dr. Shawn Qu will inaugurate BiKu, HiKu and HiDM modules during an exclusive event.
Canadian Solar's BiKu modules are at the forefront of high efficiency dual-cell bifacial modules in the industry. Its poly bifacial modules have up to 365 W power output on the front side and 75% bifaciality. It can increase energy yield by up to 30% with backside contributions under certain albedo, thus lowering LCOE dramatically. Canadian Solar's BiKu modules will certainly help you maintain IRR on your project investment, in case project PPA decreases year after year.
HiKu poly modules are developed specially for utility market with power output exceeding 400 W. This product uses the latest high efficiency cell technology, coupled with Canadian Solar'sKu module technology. HiKu modules can reduce EPC cost of solar projects in terms of lower BOS and installation costs.
HiDM (High-Density Module) is the shingle-type of module with Canadian Solar's unique IP-granted design features. It enhances module power density with module efficiency reaching up to 20.2%. The power output of a 60-cell mono HiDM module can reach 335 MW, about 10% higher than a standard full cell mono PERC module. In addition, the design of HiDM modules have much better physical appearance and less shadow effect on electricity generation. HiDM modules, with high wattage, appealing aesthetics and good shading tolerance, are one of the best products for rooftop systems where the space is limited and where shadowing is unavoidable.
BiKu, HiKu and HiDM modules will be on display at Canadian Solar Booth A1.480 during Intersolar.
