LG Electronics Deutschland GmbH – Solar Module LG NeON 2 BiFacial
LG Electronics is a consumer electronics manufacturer and has committed to expanding its operations in the PV-industry. Their Solar Module LG NeON 2 BiFacial is a high-efficiency bifacial module that can provide a significant increase in energy yields. The NeON cell technology and the 12-wire CELLO interconnection were transferred into this new module. LG conducted and documented outdoor tests under several common conditions in which the yield increase was about 10 percent. With the junction box concept, the usual single junction box is split into three smaller boxes that are located outside the cell area to avoid shading and heating on the backside. The relatively low weight makes the installation more convenient. Bifacial technology is an important trend, and the jury was convinced by the cleverness of an installation that needs less material and less space while producing the same total system power.
