Trina Solar modules recorded one of the highest average outputs in terms of actual electricity generated at Desert Knowledge Australia Solar Centre (“Desert Knowledge”) in Alice Springs, Australia.
Based on independent and ongoing test data collected by Desert Knowledge at its demonstration site from December 1, 2008 to July 31, 2009, the Company’s modules consistently held the top two position compared to modules from several leading European, Japanese, and American brands under the harsh Australia desert environment. Performance comparison was made based on similar system size operating at full capacity and fixed ground mount installation. Combining high performance with superior value, Trina Solar is dedicated to reducing the cost of solar provided electricity to accelerate the adoption of clean and efficient energy technologies.
Research and Development
Trina Solar’s partnership with leading educational institutions from around the globe will enable the company to continue its position as a worldwide technology leader. These partnerships include a technology transfer and collaboration program with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the United States. In Asia, Trina Solar has partnered with the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS) to develop an all-back-contact, high-efficiency, silicon wafer solar cell. The company has also partnered with Australia National University to develop n-type mono c-Si cells with conversion efficiencies of 20% for mass production, as well as p-type multi c-Si cells with conversion efficiencies up to 19%.
Company investments into research and development have more than tripled in 2010 to $18.6 million, up from $5.3 million in 2009. These investments have allowed Trina Solar’s high-quality modules to continue to perform at the top of the solar industry.
