AIKO claims top spot in PV Magazine energy yield ranking for monofacial modules

November 14th, 2023

14 November 2023 – AIKO has claimed the top spot for the energy yield of monofacial modules in PV Magazine’s latest ranking in November, validating the superior performance of AIKO’s modules.

The test was conducted on AIKO’s n-type ABC (All Back Contact) mono glass modules. The AIKO modules in the test achieved an average energy yield of 104.79 Wh/Wp, the highest among the 10 monofacial modules from different brands tested outdoors at a facility in Xi’an, China during September 2023.

The AIKO modules also achieved a temperature coefficient of –0.26%/°C, which is superior to that of modules from other brands.

AIKO’s solar modules offer the world’s highest conversion efficiency of 24% and a very low degradation rate of only 0.35% per year after the first year. They provide superior power output, of up to 620W from AIKO’s 72-cell modules.

“AIKO’s achievement of the top spot in the ranking is testimony of the quality and reliability of our number-one efficiency solar modules,” says Cris Lu, Director of Product Management from AIKO. “We are also very proud to have achieved a –0.26%/°C temperature coefficient in this test, setting a new standard for the market.”

As part of the test, the AIKO modules were placed under a rigorous set of procedures to ascertain the module’s quality and performance. These tests covered visual inspection, EL image inspection, low irradiance and temperature behavior, PID (Potential Induced Degradation) resistance, and outdoor performance.

September 2023 was a warm and sunny early autumn month typical in Xi’an. During the test period daily ambient temperature ranged from 16°C to 27°C and daily irradiance ranged from 0.5 kWh/m² to 7 kWh/m².

The measurements were carried out in GSolar’s test laboratory in Xi’an, and independently audited by Clean Energy Associates, an advisory firm for PV manufacturers.

Cris Lu adds: “Our modules’ high performance and clean look make them especially attractive for the high-end residential and commercial applications.”

AIKO won the 2023 Intersolar Award and the Red Dot Design Award for the superior performance and aesthetics of its solar panels. AIKO’s solar modules are available on the market in Europe, Australia, Japan, and China through select distributors.  

AIKO’s solar modules use the company’s innovative n-type ABC (All Back Contact) technology. By eliminating grid line shading losses, the technology enables a record-breaking efficiency and modern, full-black aesthetic look. AIKO’s products are backed by a 30-year performance warranty and a 15-year product warranty.
