Meyer Burger manufactures solar cells and modules to the highest quality standards in Europe using Swiss and German high technology.
Thanks to these industry-leading and exclusive technologies, our solar modules achieve both higher efficiency (output per area) and significantly higher energy yields for the same power output compared to standard modules. This means that the modules achieve more watts per square meter, and even more energy output (watt-hours) per watt.
This double advantage enables the highest energy yield per area in the solar industry. At the same time, Meyer Burger's technology allows very economical solar installations.
Unveiling of the solar modules at Intersolar Europe in Munich
In mid 2021, we will present our groundbreaking high-efficiency solar modules at Intersolar Europe in Munich.
Comparison standard modules and Meyer Burger Solar modules
|Standard Module (PERC Technology)||Meyer Burger Module (Heterojunction/SmartWire)|
|Cell efficiency (degree of efficiency)||PERC cells are limited in efficiency to 21.5 % - 22.5||Meyer Burger's exclusive heterojunction cell technology allows efficiencies of up to 24.5|
|Temperature influence||Reduced performance at rising temperatures||Performance stability even at high temperatures|
|Degradation (aging)||Decreasing performance due to high aging of the modules over their lifetime, e.g. due to micro cracks||Low aging effects over lifetime. SmartWire reduces susceptibility to microcracks and their effects|
|Light output on the back of the module (bifaciality)||Lower light yield on the back side due to different front and back side structure of the solar cells||Höhere Lichtausbeute erhöht Energieertrag auf der Rückseite dank beidseitig gleicher Solarzellen-Struktur (bis zu 92% Bifazialitätsfaktor)|
|Cell interconnection||Busbar wiring reduces the module output by lower light yield and increased electrical resistance||Highest light yield and low electrical losses thanks to extremely thin SmartWire connection|
|Angle dependence||Conventional busbars reflect oblique incident light out of the module||SmartWire connection increase the energy yield through increased reflection of oblique and diffuse light into the module|
|Low light yield||Significantly reduced energy yield in morning and evening hours (low light)||Highest possible energy yield even in the morning and evening hours|
