Hanwha Solar has recently reached a partnership with nationally recognized wholesale solar distributor AEE Solar.

Announced at the Solar Power International conference in Orlando, Florida, the new partnership allows Hanwha Solar to increase and firm up its market share in the residential solar market. In October, AEE Solar will add Hanwha Solar’s HSL60 poly module to its distribution arrangement, according to the release.

“The next generation of solar PV systems will be highly efficient, flexible and reliable. Hanwha Solar and its partners are on the vanguard of this evolution,” said president Mark Bronez, of Hanwha SolarOne North America.

“Faced with tremendous pricing pressures, solar companies must differentiate with innovative products that maximize value for customers. Hanwha Solar will continue to build strategic partnerships across the value chain to solidify this company as the most innovative, trusted partner in solar.”

Meanwhile the Hanwha Solar is showing off three new products, including the OptiMax, a PV module with advanced design that is highly efficient; the OptiMax Wave, a commercial rooftop PV system that has very high energy density; and SunBank, an entire energy storage and solar system combined.

Another interesting product being showcased by Hanwha Solar is the Epi Thin-Silicon Technology module. This technology will cut  manufacturing costs up to 50%, thanks to processing directly from gas to module, the statement said.

“Epi Thin-Silicon technology will pave the way for cost-effective solar power on a global scale,” said Chris Eberspacher, Chris Eberspacher, chief technology officer of Hanwha SolarOne said in the statement.

“We have just begun to activate our partnerships with innovative companies across the value chain, like Crystal Solar, tenKsolar and Silent Power. Hanwha Solar will continue to develop new technology that meets evolving customer needs.”

The Epi Thin Silicon module should initially hit the market in 2013, with increased volumes expected a year later, the company noted.
