In recent months, several module manufacturers have launched ambitious plans to build tunnel oxide passivated contact (TOPCon) photovoltaic module factories and most of them have launched their first products, including the world’s largest panel manufacturer, JinkoSolar.

In this pv magazine Webinar, Jinko Solar will present its own TOPCon technology and analyze market trends and the potential for TOPCon over the coming years, especially for markets in the MENA region. Some business cases will be introduced to present the technology main features that, according to the manufacturer, will make TOPCon modules prevail in the global market.

Jinko’s Head of Technical Services Middle East & North Africa, Mohamed Saady, will be on hand to take us through the company’s technological achievements, and the advantages of TOPCon technology in comparison with other technologies. Prof. Stefan Glunz, Head of Division Photovoltaics Research at Fraunhofer ISE will also join the discussion.

pv magazine Webinar content:
• Overview of TopCon N-type technology
• N-type market growth and trends
• JinkoSolar’s TopCon manufacturing expansion plan
• Jinko Tiger NEO modules
• Q&A

Questions can be submitted beforehand or during the webinar through a chat window. Emiliano Bellini from pv magazine will be the moderator of this webinar.
