Bankable Module Deployment in Europe in 2023: What Matters Today when Doing Due-Diligence?

The opening session reviews the current landscape for bankable module supply to Europe during 2023, including module suppliers that are being routinely short-listed for high-volume deliveries and the metrics that are being applied today when module buying decisions are being processed.

European High-Volume Module Supply: Which PV Module Suppliers are Part of the 100GW European PV Market Today?

This session explores what the new 100-GW-scale European PV market looks like, from a module supply and supplier standpoint. Which companies are leading shipment volumes, which are seeing strong growth and uptick by domestic EPCs, and how can we expect module supply to Europe evolve going into 2024 and beyond?

Establishing Standards for Reliability of n-type Modules in Europe

Utility-scale PV solar farms in Europe are increasingly being supplied with new n-type modules. This session will explain what the key changes are in terms of n-type module operation and performance, in addition to the testing and qualification of these new products before installation, during installation and once operational.

Choosing the Most Reliable Modules for European Utility Deployment

Module testing protocol in Europe is currently being improved to bring this into alignment with the more detailed testing currently undertaken in other global regions, in particular in the US. This session will look at how modules are being tested and qualified in Europe today at origin and destination. Hear from established module suppliers that have a track-record in meeting these requirements with field-data to support the testing protocols in place and companies providing testing services.

Panel Discussion

Module Production in Europe: Manufacturing, Supply-Chains & Product Quality Analysis

During the past decade, European utility-scale solar farms have relied almost exclusively on module supply from China and Southeast Asia. Changes however regarding new policies and directives being implemented by the EU and from institutional ESG buying criteria are now accelerating the use of domestic EU-produced modules. This session will examine where this new domestic module supply will come from, the materials supply-chains being used to decouple from China, and how these new products are being tested and qualified prior to site delivery and installation.

Module Construction & Backsheet Coatings for Sustainable Supply-Chains in a Domestic European Manufacturing Landscape

Having a sustainable supply-chain for new module production facilities within Europe is set to become a critical part of low-carbon manufacturing and creating a bill-of-materials that is not overdependent on traditional Asian channels. This session will explore some of the most promising solutions here for the next wave of new module assembly factories that will comply with legislation likely to be in place across the EU by 2025.

Heterojunction & Back-Contact Modules: Availability in Europe & Field Performance

Heterojunction and back-contact modules were previously used for rooftop applications, but the rapid growth in manufacturing capacity and cost reductions is now making these technologies serious options for utility-scale deployment. This session will explain how heterojunction and back-contact modules differ from other silicon-based modules; where volume supply to Europe is coming from and how product quality and reliability can be assessed.
