Panasonic Eco Solutions Energy Management Europe (PESEMEU) has introduced the HIT Black Back Sheet solar module.
According to the company, this black panel allows for a greater design variety and better aesthetics than conventional modules. The modules have received TUV and MCS certificates.
The products feature a module efficiency of 18.6% (with a cell conversion efficiency of 21.1%), PESEMEU adds. Anti-reflection glass helps increase the energy absorption, while the three-tabs design has been translated into a full-black appearance.
Even at high temperatures, the HIT solar cell can maintain higher efficiency than a conventional crystalline silicon solar cell, according to Panasonic. This feature is particularly relevant in all-black modules, where heat absorption is greater. The HIT modules minimize that effect, achieving a top-level temperature performance.
