The smarter E: Féron presents highly reflective black backsheet

  • Aluminium Féron GmbH & Co. KG from Düren, Germany is presenting a new black backsheet for solar modules at Intersolar.

The polyolefin-based backsheet CPx w/b HR (High Reflectivity) is identified by a particularly high reflection of case sunshine, which, according to the maker, mores than 50 percent in the wavelength array from 800 to 1,200 nanometers, which is especially appropriate for crystalline solar cells. According to Féron, rivals are accomplishing just 5 percent in this array. By comparison, Féron's white back-sheet films reflect 90 percent of the incident light in the abovementioned wavelength variety.

Because mirrored light makes a things show up brighter, while absorbed light makes it appear darker, Féron's advancement appears a bit like squaring the circle. However, the firm does not offer any kind of details regarding the physical background,

Depending on the kind of cell utilized, the use of a black backsheet causes generate losses of around one percent, as dark modules heat up extra as well as the non-reflected light is missing out on for power manufacturing. Feron's new film currently allows module manufacturers to decrease these losses. Measurements are currently being performed to quantify them and also are anticipated to be completed by Intersolar. Market launch is prepared for the fourth quarter.
