Chief of China’s JinkoSolar addresses International Electrotechnical Commission

JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd., a global leader in the PV industry, was fully represented at the International Electrotechnical Commission’s (IEC) TC82 2017 Meetings that took place in Nara, Japan.

The company says Dr. Jin Hao, Vice President of JinkoSolar, gave opening remarks where he mentioned the future of the standardization of solar cells and silicon wafers. Dr. Jin Hao as the convener of a working group on solar cells, also chaired a seminar in which experts discussed the revision of cell standards.

The IEC/TC82 is a technical organization that specializes in the international standardization of photovoltaic energy-related technologies. It mainly undertakes the drafting, formulation and publication of international standard projects in related fields. The meeting was the first international technical seminar held by the IEC/T82 WG8 Working Group since its establishment.

Six working groups were convened during the meetings, including Glossary (WG1), non-concentrating modules (WG2), systems (WG3), balance-of-system components (WG6), concentrating modules (WG7) and photovoltaic cells (WG8), as well as several joint working groups. At present, IEC/TC82 has 91 published standards and 70 ongoing projects.

IEC standards carry significant authority around the world, which ensure product quality, create industry standards and protect the interests of customers. IEC attracts experts from all over the world to participate in the standard formulation and revision process. It is currently one of the largest standard-setting organizations in the industry.

Several IEC members from China, U.S., Canada, Switzerland, South Korea, Germany and Japan attended the Plenary Meeting.

During the WG8 Working Group meeting, experts discussed IEC60904-11 testing methods for initial light-induced degradation of crystalline silicon solar cell standards, which was jointly developed by JinkoSolar and Suntech. As the first IEC international standard for commercial batteries, the standard is closely followed by domestic and foreign experts. The standard has gone through numerous discussion, verification, and joint comparison and has basically completed the revision.

In his prepared remarks given at the IEC/TC82 Plenary Meetings, Dr. Jin commented, “China is a leader in manufacturing, marketing and technology in the PV industry. Its leadership however is not commensurate with its contribution to international PV standards.

Solar cells are distributed in the market as mature products, but the absence of a unified evaluation system has been a problem plaguing the entire industry. In order to better protect the interests of all parties, developing an objective standard is the only way to meet the market’s requirements.

JinkoSolar distributes its solar products and sells its solutions and services to a diversified international utility, commercial and residential customer base in China, the United States, Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom, Chile, South Africa, India, Mexico, Brazil, the United Arab Emirates, Italy, Spain, France, Belgium, and other countries and regions.
