Applied Materials Inc. says that the 5.7 square-meter solar photovoltaic modules produced by its SunFab Thin Film Line, using both single- and more tandem-junction technologies, have been awarded International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) certification.
This certification validates the panels' exceptional performance under extended outdoor exposure, according to the company. Certification of these SunFab modules, which are the world's largest solar PV panels, provides an opportunity for the widespread incorporation of SunFab panels in utility-scale, thin-film solar farms.
Certification was awarded by TUV InterCert, confirming that the SunFab modules meet IEC standards 61646 and 61730.
