Yingli Awarded “TUV Rheinland Star for 2015 PV Module Energy Yield” At Recent TUV Rheinland Solar Congress 2016

May 14th, 2016 by  

The troubled solar photovoltaic module manufacturer Yingli Solar was recently awarded the “TUV Rheinland Star for 2015 PV Module Energy Yield” at the TUV Rheinland Solar Congress 2016, the company announced.

Yingli Solar modulesIn addition, the company’s solar photovoltaic (PV) module was rated as a “Five-star PV Module” at the event.

The CTO of Yingli Solar, Dr Dengyuan Song, commented: “These honors awarded by TUV Rheinland highlight the outstanding energy yield performance of our PV modules under real outside operating conditions and our test result provides a benchmark for PV module energy yield in the industry. Meanwhile, our high, independently proven, PV module energy yield also delivers higher yield forecast confidence for larger solar power plants, increasing investment returns and supporting Yingli to achieve our mission ‘to provide affordable green energy for all’. Yingli will continue to dedicate itself to developing high-performance, differentiated products, strengthening innovation and product quality, and making leading contributions to the PV industry.”

The press release on the matter provides more:

TUV Rheinland conducted a one-year outside energy yield test for module samples from 15 leading PV module manufacturers around the world by simulating the operation of PV modules in solar power plants. The test showed that Yingli’s PV modules scored high in accumulated energy yield per watt peak during the testing period.

Therefore, Yingli was awarded “TUV Rheinland Star for 2015 PV Module Energy Yield” and its PV module was entitled “Five-star PV Module” by TUV Rheinland, which independently demonstrates the outstanding performance of Yingli PV modules in terms of energy yield. Noted for rigorous and reliable testing certification, TUV Rheinland, a leading provider of technical services worldwide with a history of over 140 years, was the first to start laboratory-scale technical testing of solar components decades ago and houses the largest worldwide PV testing network.

Despite all of this, it should be remembered that Yingli is not exactly in a great position currently — with the company dealing with a number of different problems, most notably big net losses and being on the verge of bankruptcy
