Sharp Energy Solutions has introduced its expanded range of solar PV modules for solar plant and commercial installations at At Middle East Electricity (MEE) 2018

In addition, the company has also launched a new highly efficient back contact module for the residential market, the NQ-R258H during the event.

Andrew Lee, sales director for EMEA at Sharp, said, ?In the last 12 months, Sharp opened up several new distribution partners in the Middle East and neighbouring countries and shipped more than 50MW to this region. This is an important market for us and we look forward to meeting more prospective partners and customers at the show.?

In Turkey alone, Sharp is working on several projects totaling 11.608MW, with its partner Aldo Enerji. This includes a solar farm generating 7.153MW which uses Sharp?s ND-RJ270 module. This module provides a robust design, high quality and long performance guarantees.

Sharp launches new PV module with 20 per cent efficiency

MEE is the first event where Sharp introduces its new 48-cell NQ-R258H PV module, a new addition to its NQ-R product family of highly efficient back contact modules for residential use.

The NQ-R258H (258W) monocrystalline photovoltaic (PV) module incorporates Sharp?s back contact technology with efficiency of 20 per cent; increasing the amount of sunlight that can be used and returning maximum power output for minimum roof space.

The module has a discreet matt black finish, while reflections are minimised mostly due to the electrical contact wires being on the underside of the panel. It uses anti-reflection glass to make the panels even less conspicuous.

Modules for commercial installations

Sharp is introducing its full range of modules for commercial customers. For project applications, Sharp provides its 360W monocrystalline module NU-SC360 with a module efficiency of 18.5 per cent. The 360W 72 cell photovoltaic (PV) module offers the highest power output in Sharp?s range of polycrystalline and monocrystalline modules, and benefits from highly efficient PERC cell technology.

The PERC architecture means that the module can achieve higher efficiencies than standard modules, making it particularly suitable for large-scale roof top or ground mounted facilities that demand reliable, efficient energy supplies, such as solar parks, factories or warehouses.

Sharp also presents the powerful 330W polycrystalline module ND-AH330 with a module efficiency of 17 per cent, and its reliable ND-RB275 module with a module efficiency of 16.8 per cent (275W).
