Longi: 2020 is the Best Time for BIPV to Take Off

After years of development, BIPV is moving from concept to landing. 

More and more companies realize that the integration of solar photovoltaic modules and building materials is a double benefit for the solar photovoltaic industry and the construction industry, and in the process has set off a new revolution in green development. 

At present, the integration of green intelligent power generation systems in buildings has become the consensus of all countries and the trend of building development. 

BIPV is already well-equipped in China and will usher in rapid development. It is reported that in June 2020, a BIPV project with an installed capacity of up to 40.9 MW in Jiangxi Province will be completed and will be the largest BIPV project in the world after completion. 

BIPV exceeds the “trillion” market development potential, so that many solar photovoltaic companies are “coveted”.

Longji announced that in the second half of 2020, the company will join the BIPV market army and is expected to launch new BIPV products and solutions, which will further promote the rapid development of the domestic BIPV market. 

Longji New Energy said that for the Chinese BIPV industry, the industrial and commercial roof market has a huge capacity. According to data statistics, the total area of ​​photovoltaics that can be installed on the roofs of existing industrial and commercial (including public buildings) nationwide is about 6 billion square meters, and the facade is about 1.6 billion square meters, totaling nearly 8 billion square meters. If all are built into BIPV, a total of 1100GW can be installed, equivalent to A potential market of 5.5 trillion yuan. 

As early as two years ago, CITIC Bo discovered the huge business opportunities in the BIPV market. Relying on its own technical advantages, it carried out the preliminary layout, compared the advantages and disadvantages of various types of BIPV projects at home and abroad, and carried out technical research on the core difficulties. 

CITIC Bo predicts that in the future, more owners will adopt BIPV integrated solutions. While enjoying the green benefits of solar power generation, they will also save the capital cost and time of roof repairs. 

As one of the earliest domestic enterprises engaged in solar photovoltaic power generation business, Dongfang Risheng is also actively deploying BIPV. At the beginning of 2020, Dongfang Risheng said that the company has reserved and applied BIPV-related technologies. 

It is understood that Dongfang Risheng Changzhou’s 2.05MW BIPV project has passed the grid acceptance on August 28, 2019 and started generating electricity. It is estimated that the average annual power generation is about 2 million kWh, and the internal investment return rate is 14.8%. 

JinkoSolar has given a forecast of the legislative requirements for photovoltaic buildings. Jinkoko Electric said that by 2025, more and more countries and regions will adopt local regulations to modify or add building standards for local application of solar energy systems. It is required that within a certain height, new residential buildings above a certain area must be installed with photovoltaic systems; all suitable industrial and commercial roofs of the park must be installed with photovoltaics, which will also be incorporated into local park management regulations. 

The industry believes that BIPV is a key technical factor to solve the demand for near-zero energy consumption of building electricity. With the rapid reduction in the cost of the solar photovoltaic industry chain in recent years, the photovoltaic industry has moved from solar photovoltaic power plants to BIPV, and the industry has moved from policy dependence to no In the era of subsidies, the rise of spontaneous market demand will open up a broad space for the development of BIPV.

Longji said that 2020 is the starting point of the rise of BIPV, and BIPV’s investment income can recover the investment in the construction of the entire house within 20-25 years. 

LONGi shares revealed that in China, LONGi’s involvement in BIPV is mainly to enlarge the company’s industrial park, logistics and other major customers, and will not be pushed out to residents for the time being. 

Longji shares once said in a conference call, “Now Longji has done a lot of IP layout, more is the intellectual property protection of appearance and structure, that is, customer recognition, this should be the new blue ocean. In addition, in the photovoltaic scenario such as Rural distributed energy storage plus diesel backup can reduce costs, which is why the company is involved in BIPV (photovoltaic building materials). ” 

Lungi believes that with the continuous decline of BIPV investment costs, the continuous improvement of industry standards and the continuous completion of certification qualifications, market growth is expected to accelerate. Now, perhaps the best time for BIPV to take off.

Judging from the recent international orders signed, including Sri Lanka and Hungary, JinkoSolar supplies 400W high-efficiency Cheetah solar panels for Sri Lanka roof projects and 13.6MW modules for 19 photovoltaic power stations in Hungary. 

The announcement revealed that JinkoSolar provided 2MW high-efficiency Cheetah series solar panels to Jacksons Power and Energy in Sri Lanka, which is currently one of the country’s largest rooftop photovoltaic systems. Compared with traditional single-sided solar panels, Cheetah’s 158.75-size half-cell cell design enables industrial and commercial rooftop photovoltaic systems to provide higher power, efficiency, and less shadow blocking effects, increasing the power generation by 15% in the same area. 

In Hungary, JinkoSolar supplied 13.6MW of solar modules to Photon Energy Solutions HU Kft (“Photon Energy”) for installation in three Hungary projects. These projects consist of 19 photovoltaic power plants, located in Tisa Kecske, Hungary, Ormászf it, and Nagyécéd, Hungary. It is understood that the total annual power generation of the above power stations is expected to be 16GWh. 

In addition, JinkoSolar recently provided 1GW of high-efficiency photovoltaic solar panels to photovoltaic power stations in Colombia, Mexico and Spain. 

In fact, most of the orders for photovoltaic module companies in 2020 have been signed in the second half of 2019, and JinkoSolar’s public orders are actually only part of the signed orders. 

People in the photovoltaic industry will not be unfamiliar with Jinko Energy. JinkoSolar Holdings Limited (NYSE: JKS) is a ground company in China, the United States, Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom, Chile, South Africa, India, Mexico, Brazil, the UAE, Italy, Spain, France, Belgium and other regions. Solar power products, solutions and technical services are provided by power station, commercial and civil customers. 

It is worth mentioning that JinkoSolar recently raised its forecast for the fourth quarter and full year of 2019. 

JinkoSolar predicts that total solar PV module shipments in the fourth quarter of 2019 will reach 4.5GW-4.6GW, with total revenue of US $ 1.35 billion-US $ 1.38 billion, respectively, a 6% increase from previous estimates, 14%. In terms of gross profit margin, JinkoSolar is expected to reach 18% -20% in the fourth quarter of 2019, and the previous guidance price was 18.5% -20.5%. 

For the full year of 2019, JinkoSolar will increase its total solar PV module shipments to 14.3-14.44GW. 

Looking forward to 2020, JinkoSolar estimates that this year’s module shipment will be about 18GW-20GW, which is about 4GW-6GW higher than the full-year forecast for 2019, which means that total PV module shipments will increase by 35%. 

It should be noted that since 2016, JinkoSolar has firmly occupied the leading position in global photovoltaic module shipments. 

According to statistics, JinkoSolar continues to be the leader in photovoltaic modules in 2019, and Jinko’s module shipments in 2019 are 14.3-14.44GW, which is 37.86% higher than the second place. This is the fourth consecutive year that JinkoSolar has occupied the largest shipments since 2016. 

JinkoSolar has established a vertically integrated photovoltaic industry chain. As of December 31, 2019, monolithic wafer capacity was 11.5 GW, solar cell capacity was 10.6 GW, and solar module capacity was 16GW.

What’s the Construction of a Small Custom Solar Panel?

A solar panel is a device that converts solar energy into electrical energy. Since solar panels can be customized flexibly, small custom solar panels have been applied to many off-grid solar applications, such as solar chargers, solar attic fans, and solar LED lights etc.

Usually the solar panels we see are a complete piece of panel, but do you know what the internal structure of the solar panels is?

Small Custom Solar Panel

Here, we mainly introduce the crystal silicon solar panels that are more common on the market as an example.

The structure of crystalline silicon solar panels is usually: tempered glass / EVA / solar cell / EVA / backsheet.

Solar Panel Construction

(1) Tempered glass: Its function is to protect the main body of power generation (such as solar cells). The choice of light transmission is required:

1. The light transmittance must be high (generally 91% or more); 2. Ultra-white tempering treatment.

(2) EVA: Used to bond fixed tempered glass and solar cell. The quality of transparent EVA material directly affects the life of solar panels. EVA exposed to air is prone to aging and yellowing, thus affecting the light transmission of solar panels, so then, affecting the power generation quality of the solar panels. In addition to the quality of the EVA itself, the influence of the lamination process of the custom solar panel manufacturers is also very large. For example, if the EVA adhesiveness is not up to standard, the bonding strength of EVA and tempered glass and backing plate is insufficient, which will cause EVA early aging, thus affects solar panel’s life.

(3) Solar Cell: Solar cells are the core components of solar panels. The main function of solar cell is power generation. 

(4) Back sheet: Its function is sealed, insulated and waterproof. Generally, materials such as TPT and TPE must be resistant to aging. Most solar panel manufacturers are guaranteed for 25 years. Tempered glass and aluminum alloys are generally no problem. The key is whether the back sheet and silica gel can meet the requirements.

 When the solar cell is soldered, the next step is to laminate, according to the following sequence, tempered glass / EVA / solar cell / EVA / back plate, stacked, and then sent to the laminator for vacuuming, and high temperature lamination. EVA is solid at room temperature, but when EVA is exposed to high temperatures, it becomes liquid. Therefore, in the laminator, after the EVA is melted into a liquid state, the solar cell sheet and the tempered glass and the back sheet are glued together.

Just after laminating from the laminator, usually on the four sides of the solar panel, there is some excess EVA overflow, which requires a knife to cut and burr. After processing, a complete solar panel is produced.
