JinkoSolar has taken the Intersolar Award 2019 in the Photovoltaics category for its Swan bifacial module with transparent backsheet from DuPont.

The Intersolar Award is presented to companies that have made a substantial contribution to the success of the industry, honoring technological innovations and groundbreaking solutions using photovoltaic-related technologies.

The Swan module incorporates the company’s Cheetah bifacial half-cut cell technology and a transparent backsheet, making it more lightweight than glass-glass modules.

The panel generates up to 400W on the front side with up to 20% energy gain from the rear side, the company says.

The technology is backed up with a linear 30-year performance warranty.
