Poland’s Solar Photovoltaic Market Explodes, and Traditional Coal Industry is Under Threat

Recently, the unions of PGG, Poland ’s largest coal group, warned that if the government does not provide help, the coal industry will collapse due to falling demand. Poland relies heavily on coal-fired power generation and is the only EU member state that has not committed to zero carbon emissions by 2050. But in the face of increasing pressure from the EU to reduce emissions, Poland began to encourage investment in solar and offshore wind farms. The increase in the share of clean energy in power generation, the decline in power demand after the epidemic is closed to the city, and coal imports have exacerbated problems in the coal industry.

The Polish government previously stated that the installed capacity of solar photovoltaics will reach 10.2GW in 2030 and 20.2GW in 2040. The Polish government also supports industrial and commercial and large-scale power plant projects through the renewable energy auction system. The new government regulations allow owners of solar photovoltaic systems of more than 50 kW to sell excess power. Growth in the industrial and commercial field will be particularly strong. At the same time, the promotion of rooftop solar photovoltaic incentives and corporate net measurement policies has stimulated the potential of the solar photovoltaic market. In 2019, solar power generation in Poland has risen sharply.

On the other hand, due to the increase in the price of carbon dioxide certificates, the impact of the increase in the price of European carbon dioxide emission quotas will seriously affect Poland ’s electricity prices, and coal is the most intensive energy source for carbon dioxide. Great power to promote the development of clean energy in Poland.

According to SolarPower Europe data, in 2019 Poland ranked fifth in the number of new photovoltaic installations among European countries, and it is only 300MW less than the fourth place in France. It is also unknown that it exceeds France. In early 2020, Bloomberg predicted that Poland will be one of the top ten global solar photovoltaic markets this year.

210 Technology Replacement Demand Exceeds 20 Billion, HIT Leads the New Trend of Next-generation Photovoltaic Cells

In the face of the epidemic sweeping the world, the problem of “two-level differentiation” is in front of the photovoltaic people.

SMEs are struggling in a crisis-ridden environment and seeking hope for life, but for leading companies, it is still difficult to stop their pace of active expansion.

The leading domestic solar cell manufacturers are not afraid of the impact of the epidemic and are actively expanding production.

Custom Solar Panel for Solar Powered LED Lighting

Recently, Tongwei issued a fixed increase plan, which will raise no more than 6 billion yuan of funds, and it is expected that 4.2 billion will be invested in Meishan Phase II (7.5GW) and Jintang Phase I (7.5GW) high-efficiency solar cell projects.

In addition to Tongwei, LONGi has announced a total expansion of 10GW of monocrystalline solar cells, AiXu expanded by 5.9GW, Jingao expanded by 10GW, and Jinko expanded by 10GW. It is expected that PERC solar cell expansion will reach 30GW this year , The corresponding equipment amount is more than 6 billion, and it is expected to begin to place orders in Q2.

It is worth mentioning that the acceleration of the industrialization of 210 silicon wafers is still the main theme in 2020.

Judging from the announcement issued by Tongwei this year, the above projects are mainly based on the 210-size PERC technology route, and reserve space for PERC + / TOPCON equipment.

From the perspective of this year’s new expansion plan for solar cells, the expansion of solar cell factories led by Tongwei and Aixu are mainly based on 210 large sizes.

Among them, the first 210 solar cell workshop of Tongwei-Meishan Phase I is expected to be mass-produced in mid-May, and the follow-up Meishan Phase II and Jintang 30GW plans will take the 210 route.

In January, Axu announced the mass production of 5GW 210 solar cell production line. It also plans to expand its solar cell capacity to 22GW by the end of 2020, 32GW by the end of 2021, and 45GW by the end of 2022.

As for solar modules, Dongfang Risheng and Trina Solar have successively released 210mm 500W solar modules.

In addition, as the leader of 210 large silicon wafers, China Central also recently announced an investment of 5 billion yuan in the construction of G12 PERC + solar cell lines and shingled solar module projects, which will further promote the industrialization of large-scale silicon wafers.

Relevant institutions judge that the future increase in the penetration rate of 210 technology will exceed market expectations. It is expected that the industry replacement demand brought by large silicon wafers will exceed 20 billion, and Jingsheng Electromechanical as the only supplier of 210 single crystal furnaces will greatly benefit.

It is worth noting that as early as a few years ago, in the photovoltaic industry, there have been disputes between PERC, TOPCON and HIT technologies in the solar cell technology.

It is reported that PERC + is based on P-type silicon wafers and currently has a laboratory efficiency of 23.5% or more. It is necessary to superimpose 4 devices on the original PERC production line. It is expected that a prototype will be released by the end of 2020 and need to be verified by the production line.

TOPCON is based on N-type silicon wafers, with a conversion efficiency of over 23.5%. The equipment is relatively mature, but since N-type silicon wafers and equipment are relatively expensive, the overall cost is higher than PERC +.

The industry believes that the current conversion efficiency of PERC + / TOPCON can reach more than 23.5%, but the cost reduction route is still unclear. It needs to undergo production line inspection and is expected to become a transition path for PERC to upgrade to the next generation of technology.

In terms of HIT, it can be said that the progress has been quite effective. Taking Tongwei as an example, the average conversion efficiency of its multi-main grid starts at 23.5%, and it is expected to see more than 24% in the second half of the year, and the highest efficiency on the production line is close to 25%. But at present, it is still not comparable to PERC in terms of cost performance.

In 2019, in addition to the four HIT test projects of Tongwei and Shanmei International, battery factories such as Aikang and Artus have also successively launched HIT layouts since 2020.

The industry predicts that with the decline of HIT costs and the improvement of conversion efficiency in the next two years, HIT will become a megatrend for the next generation of photovoltaic solar cells.

The Total Market Value Exceeded 100 Billion Yuan! “Expansion King” Longji’s Q1 Net Profit is Expected to Increase by More Than 170%

In the first quarter of 2020, solar photovoltaic companies issued performance forecasts, and more than half of the companies were affected by the epidemic, resulting in a decline in net profit.

However, the epidemic did not affect Longji, the world’s largest manufacturer of monocrystalline solar products.

On the evening of April 16, Longji announced that it expects to realize net profit attributable to shareholders of listed companies in the first quarter of this year of 1.65 billion to 1.950 billion yuan, an increase of 175.05% to 219.15% year-on-year. After deducting non-recurring gains and losses, the company’s net profit also reached 1.549 billion yuan to 1.849 billion yuan.

Public information shows that in the same period last year, Longji shares realized a net profit attributable to shareholders of listed companies of 611 million yuan. As a result, in the first quarter of 2020, Longji’s main business performance was very strong.

WSL Solar – Manufacturer of Custom Solar Panel

“The King of Expansion” Expanding Production Capacity

According to the announcement, Longji shares attributed the rapid growth of performance to the expansion of production capacity.

Throughout the entire solar photovoltaic industry, Longji shares are well-deserved “kings of expansion,” and public data compilation shows that the investment amount of Longji shares reached as high as 30 billion yuan in 2019 alone.

Longji said that under the influence of the expansion of production capacity, the company’s main products monocrystalline solar wafers and solar modules sales increased rapidly year-on-year, the proportion of large-size silicon wafers and high-power solar module products increased rapidly, and the operating income increased significantly year-on-year Costs continued to decrease, and product gross profit margins increased year-on-year.

Looking back on 2019, in the case of sluggish domestic PV market demand, many domestic PV companies, including Longji, have chosen to “go overseas.” Taking the company’s solar module shipments in the first half of 2019 as an example, its overseas shipments accounted for 70%.

Longji said that in the first quarter of this year, in the face of the spread of the epidemic and the complex external operating environment, it flexibly adjusted its production and operation plans. For overseas orders, the company strengthened timely communication with domestic and foreign customers, and strived to ensure timely and high-quality delivery of orders in hand.

In addition, the crazy expansion of Longji’s shares on the silicon side in 2019 seems to be preparing for the future price war of monocrystalline solar wafers.

On March 25, 2020, LONGi released the price announcement of monocrystalline solar wafers. The price of monocrystalline solar wafers P-type M6 180μm thickness (166 / 223mm) is 3.41 yuan / sheet, which is the price announced on February 24 Compared with it, it is reduced by 0.06 yuan / piece; the price of single crystal solar silicon P-type M2 180 μm thickness is 3.07 yuan / piece. Compared with the price released on February 24, it remains unchanged.

In this announcement, Longji announced the same price for P-type boron-doped and gallium-doped silicon wafers. Industry insiders believe that its official announcement of the same price for both may be laying the foundation for the elimination of backward monocrystalline solar capacity.

The long-term trend of solar photovoltaics has not changed

At present, under the spread of overseas epidemics, short-term demand in overseas markets has been impacted, and whether the overseas sales of Longji shares have been affected has attracted considerable attention from investors.

On April 15th, Longji’s board secretary responded that the epidemic was a short-term impact on the solar photovoltaic industry, and the mid-to-long term trend of the solar photovoltaic industry has not changed. The company’s order fulfillment has been normal in the past week, and it will carefully evaluate the market situation to fully prevent market risks.

It is worth mentioning that in 2020, Longji shares non-stop, and has successively announced a number of expansion projects to further enhance the overall production capacity.

According to public information, Longji’s planned production capacity has exceeded 133GW, and on its traditional strength silicon side, it will achieve 80GW of production capacity in 2020.

It is worth noting that the development trend of large-size silicon wafers has also become a hot topic this year. M6 (166mm) size silicon wafers represented by Longji shares and M12 (210mm) size silicon wafers represented by Zhonghuan shares Direct collision.

According to Longji shares, the company ’s M6 (166mm) silicon wafer orders have been filled in the second quarter since full production resumed in March. Looking forward to the whole year, its calculated M6 silicon wafer will account for more than 70% of the total shipments.

It can be said that from the comparison of production capacity, Longji currently has no rivals on the silicon side.

Finally, back to the performance forecast, affected by the large pre-increased performance of Longji shares, Longji shares opened higher and higher today, and once touched the daily price limit, the total market value exceeded 100 billion yuan.

Relevant agencies expect that the second quarter of this year will be a period of downturn overseas. The adjustment of the industrial chain price will accelerate, driving the demand after the epidemic. The leading share will further increase. The current adjustment is relatively large. The long-term value of the solar photovoltaic leading including Longji shares appears.

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.

What are the Basic Parameters of Custom Solar Panels?

Custom Solar Panels have several basic parameters, rated power (Pmax), efficiency (η), open circuit voltage (Voc), short circuit current (Isc), peak voltage (Vmpp), and peak current (Impp).

Custom Solar Panel

Their definitions are as follows:

Rated power (Pmax): indicates the power generated by the maximum power point voltage when the custom solar panel is at the standard ambient temperature (STC, ie, the atmospheric mass is 1.5, ambient temperature is 25 ° C, the light radiation intensity is 1000 W/m 2 );

Efficiency (η): represents the photoelectric conversion efficiency of the silicon wafer inside the custom solar panel, such as an efficiency of 16.5%, which means that the silicon wafer can generate 165 W of electricity per square meter;

Open circuit voltage (Voc): indicates the voltage across the positive and negative terminals (custom solar panel’s no-load voltage) when the solar panel is open at standard ambient temperature;

Short-circuit current (Isc): indicates the short-circuit current generated by short-circuit between the positive and negative terminals of the solar panel when the panel is at the standard ambient temperature;

Peak voltage (Vmpp): indicates the operating voltage of the customized solar panel at the maximum power point (the highest voltage in strong light) when the panel is at the standard ambient temperature;

Peak current (Impp): Indicates the operating current corresponding to the operating voltage of the solar panel at the maximum power point when the panel is at the standard ambient temperature.

Ranked No. 1 in the World for 4 Consecutive Years. Why Jinko?

Recently, Jinko has frequently moved, and international solar module orders have been continuously updated. At the same time, it has also raised its 2020 performance forecast. 

According to incomplete statistics, JinkoSolar’s international solar photovoltaic module orders opened in 2020 only reached 1.2GW. 

5W Solar Panel from WSL Solar


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. JinkoSolar has 7 production bases worldwide, 15 overseas subsidiaries, and more than 15,000 employees.
