Excellent to see our client Hanwha Q CELLS leading the way in reducing the carbon footprint of their PV modules. Organisations are increasingly looking at the environmental credentials of their supply-chain when choosing suppliers (I know we are) so this certainly elevates Hanwha Q Cell's position in the market. It also means that they meet the requirements for French public tenders which insist on solar PV modules having a low carbon footprint in their manufacturing process.
France have been operating this system successfully for some time and installed 875MW last year with 2018 looking to exceed this. This low carbon footprint model is certainly something other countries should be looking at with their public tenders to ensure their renewable energy projects have the lowest possible environmental impact.
Hyperion are currently working with Hanwah Q CELLS to recruit an Account Manager for their new energy storage solution in the UK. If you would like to hear more about the opportunity with this forward thinking company, please get in touch.
Hanwha Q CELLS GmbH, the German subsidiary of the world’s leading solar cell manufacturer (as compared to leading solar module supplier) Hanwha Q CELLS, revealed that it has reached a new carbon footprint of 250 kg-eq/C0²/kWc with its high-efficiency Q.PEAK DUO module series. The company’s Q.PEAK DUO module series combines half-cut cell technology, six bus-bars, and the Company’s proprietary Q.ANTUM (PERC) monocrystalline cell technology, and provides efficiencies of close to 20% and power output up to 330 Wp from 120 half-cut cells and up to 395 Wp from 144 half-cut cells. “Hanwha Q CELLS has always been keenly aware of the importance of selling eco-friendly products,” added Stephan Maurel and Laurent Bodin, Head of Sales, France. “We are pleased that our portfolio is ideally aligned to meet the clean energy needs of an important market such as France.”
