Sanyo is already one of the leading solar panel manufacturers in the world and is now trying to take the lead with the development of theworld’s most efficient solar module. The company has recently developedthe HIT-N230, which is being claimed to have an energy-efficiency of20.7 percent.
The company achieved this by increasing the number of tabs from twoto three and making tabs thinner. These tabs were then applied with AGcoated glass, which allows them to trap light and reduce reflection andscattering of light. The company’s N series HIT modules are scheduled to be launched in Japan in autumn 2010 and the HIT solar modules areplanned to hit Europe in early 2011.
