Alpha Leads Industry Discussion on Advancements in PV Module Assembly


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions has launched a new technology-focused group on LinkedIn for advancements in solar (PV) module assembly.

The purpose of this group is to serve as a venue for technical exchanges between solar professionals including scientists, engineers and others involved in:

  • The assembly of thin film and crystalline silicon (cSi) PV modules including P-Type, N-Type, PERC, back contact and metal wrap-through designs
  • The design and assembly of junction boxes used with solar modules
  • The design and assembly of inverters for PV applications
  • Supplying equipment or products used to enhance or improve the electrical conductivity of the solar panels and related system equipment

Alpha welcomes postings and input input related to current issues, new materials, ideas or other technological advancements to help improve the efficiency, appearance or reliability of a solar module, as well as, lower the modules assembly cost. All exchanges should be posted for the purpose of improving the collective knowledge of the Group’s members. Submissions in any language are accepted.

Anyone interested in these topics is welcome to join and contribute. Please link here to Advancements in Solar (PV) Module Assembly or search for Advancements in Solar (PV) Module Assembly in the Groups category in Linkedin.
