Polaris solar PV net news: spaceflight machine in terms of cells, modules, or photovoltaic power plant development and construction are the formation of a high quality and pragmatic style. The latest development of the n-type single crystal component is expected to increase generating capacity compared with conventional products by 30%, and apart from the rolling development of photovoltaic power station 400MW annually, spaceflight machine is more concerned about how to give customers the most core value: everything from solving practical problems, through value-added services as much as possible, solve financing and improving power generation in the late early.
Grounded grounding when the tall, space technology and spaceflight machine will give the industry what a surprise?
Reporter: spaceflight machine in the industry’s most difficult moment did not give up research and development and innovation, what are the scientific research company recently?
Shiller: we recently launched an n-sided cells, module efficiency of about 17. Compared with upgrading the efficiency of general industry 16% 1%) we currently have achieved mass production, then we’ll do a test by a 200kW pilot project and a final validation of the product.
Reporter: is to introduce new components to build a station, please?
Shiller: Yes, an actual power station by way of comparison, according to our lab data, this product will generate about 30% more than conventional products, because it back to power. Then we have to verify, so we did a pilot project to 200kW and others compare the p-type single crystal and polycrystalline.
Reporter: what do you say 30 I think I think it is a very alarming figure. You say to increase high performance power station refers to a collection of new technologies to create a whole, still apart from the components do not, other equal conditions can increase 3%?
Shiller: the only component to it. First based on single crystal n-type characteristics, attenuation of the n-type single crystals much smaller than p-type. According to SunPower’s data, n-type batteries do very little attenuation of components five years ago, after 15 years of decay is at such a low level 0.5%, which has a generating capacity of increase. And compared to conventional technology, improves the efficiency of 1.5% n-type batteries.
And the best thing is the back of the power generation technologies: back generation capacity able to effectively compensate for the positive angle defect, making some components in the corner or a less important place, back to power. Especially the snow in many areas, power generation on the back of the component of the winter snow melt very quickly, making the winter of efficiency of power generation, power hours and power generation efficiency will be greatly enhanced.
This examples has in Japan get has confirmed: positive snow covered has component, and due to n type component back can power, produced heat snow will soon to of off, in Germany, and Netherlands this latitude high of national, snow yihou solar on not power has, application n type component, in light good of situation Xia, back of power on can will positive of snow melted, makes positive also can power, extended has power time.
Reporter: is there any electricity from the back is said to be positive and the number of percentage?
Shiller: positive efficiency of our 20.5%, we require at least 18 per cent on the back, front and back of the efficiency difference is less obvious, and according to the angle of the Sun, after the afternoon sun in the past, could generate more than the face amount on the back.
Reporter: back contact solar cell material requirements are not very high, or what difficulties are on the device?
Shiller: single crystal material itself is generic, you need to consider is how to reduce process steps because shortening the process steps means lower costs, more reliable quality.
The purpose of our research is on the leading-edge technology to service to our products, the most important thing is to define a suitable product, good performance, then the cost is acceptable, use products to improve market efficiency, and technology does not in itself increase the benefit.
Reporter: research and development of military enterprises which must have this Foundation to transform to upgrade later. Spaceflight machine also continued this tradition?
Shiller: Yes. We have a lot of technology stocks, but now we emphasize the product, how to use technology with reasonable economic cost to products, making our products for consumer acceptance. For example: we have a leading space photovoltaic cells, but there is no way to commercialization, the cost is too high. But we can take the technology used in existing products, the introduction of low cost, more cost-effective products, so that consumers will accept.
Please talk about spaceflight machine in the photovoltaic industry in the layout and positioning of the company.
Shiller: we don’t want to do capacity of giants, this doesn’t make any sense. Enterprise is the ability to say its profit contribution, giants of our industry a lot of capacity to its profit contribution are very poor, are largely at a loss. Spaceflight machine will look for a reasonable amount of capacity is the most economical, the second was more conducive to our technology. We’re looking for the right kind of capacity, now we see 1GW capacity is appropriate. Photovoltaic manufacturing companies very much pressure on cash flow.
Reporter: is n-type battery capacity of your company how many?
Shiller: currently we have formulated a capacity of 10MW. Technology until you have shaped us to no rushing. This capacity is in our view no problem cases, and we have received some cooperation intentions.
Reporter: what prices will be higher?
Shiller: high price will certainly be higher than conventional products, we are not saying we want to sell higher-priced products, we sell high quality products.
N-type batteries are you entering a foreign market? Because foreign markets itself more considering the price, on the other hand, residential users, he might want to install higher capacity limited roof.
Shiller: Yes, cost is the area of the roof, for as much electricity as possible has high requirements for efficiency and quality of components. I personally think that there are two trends in the future of this technology, a cheaper polycrystalline products. Much cheaper or cheaper grain to cover vast areas of land, then we say n-type product is probably going to some of the high end of the market, residential, commercial roof space-constrained and high cost of its area, and then by n-type high efficiency power generation to make up for it.
There are many special applications, for example, we launched the “Highway”, on both sides of the highway if you install these components, then he was not under the influence of angle, double power, greatly improving the efficiency of power generation, but also to the new energy and building together.
Reporter: could you talk about spaceflight machine market strategy.
Shiller: our main market is divided into three blocks: domestic support, Japan, and India we will have big moves, and potentially large demand this year in Europe and America. To relative stability, I think it’s globalization, India Japan market driven demand in the first quarter, European Union to stimulate demand in the second quarter, coupled with domestic as well as some other markets will have a good performance in the three or four quarter.
Just you also mentioned has Europe market, feels Europe market of (situation) I feels in gradually deteriorated, may United Kingdom will good point, Germany, and United States this, Germany is traditional market, United States is future a emerging market, I feel market are in by some challenge, some double anti-some market atrophy has, that we how to viewed such of market, addition, space electromechanical did looking for some emerging of market?
Shiller: spaceflight machine we still want to make the world’s top 500 companies this year, not only in the India market with, in India the market strength, but we are the South American market, actively for the African market, in the European and American markets, according to the launch of his two-handed backhand, we will also adopt some emergency response plans will break through the market’s resistance. PV trends from Europe is very successful, today it may be the future of our country today. Increasing demand of market transition from the big power stations to the roof of the small power station, energy storage technology development in Europe is also very leading, we see if the trend is likely to grow in the future to the roof of the power station to change really can do very little European countries like, most major is energy storage breakthrough technologies and breakthrough in energy storage power management technology. I think Europe is promising to do.
Reporter: you mean that is most apt to get rid of subsidies in Europe realize real profit?
Benji: Yes. Because electricity prices in Europe is also very high, separate small roofs and small projects combined with energy storage technology, possible lower price than traditional electric, miniaturization of PV market will provide direction for further development. This is also from a technical point of view we are bullish on single crystal n-type of reason.
Now, manufacturers are not open around one topic: turnover. Then inside the module manufacturer, how to make the higher turnover?
Shiller: we do not support blindly to ask suppliers dianzi, spaceflight machine trying to build a very stable environment. We have a very stable accounts, this payment may be provided us with stability of purchases acquired, rather than all of a sudden a lot of weight, because of large orders in the past, many suppliers are also contradictory. Seasonal fluctuations are extremely strong, high season buy very much, very little in the off-season.
So we propose is a stable procurement, pulling it to stabilize. Customers and we are looking for a stable customer, he needs each month, demand fluctuation within probably not I give you how many orders this month, next month, and none. This customer is not our long-term customers.
Reporter: but many State-owned enterprises are purchasing on the amount of one year’s total procurement, if you can’t get into this, possibly the hundreds of MW a year and lost it all.
Shiller: so, from the perspective of orders is to be Division. Our orders for large power companies, no more than one-fourth, we built in our may account for its share of one-third to one-fourth in this way, in other words, or to the EPC to find some stability in the world, stable client, they can give you a capacity of stability, stability will be able to bring the cost down. Our philosophy is to stabilise rather than reduce the amount of cost, experience tells us that this is impossible, because if it is, a large number of purchases, today there is no tomorrow, then this will not make the supplier’s cost reduction. They can’t cut costs, has not revealed a low price.
Reporter: Wu Hao, first of all, we want you to tell us about our spaceflight machine in terms of station layout.
Hao Wu: we divide the plant into four categories. From a power plant on the surface is the same, but the four types of power plant business model is completely different, we build photovoltaic power plant first before looking at their business model. In terms of large power stations, our business model has come through, has sold a 200MW. Our large terrestrial photovoltaic plant services covering eight provinces in the country in 16 municipalities.
First large power station, spaceflight machine can guarantee almost 400MW of rolling development of capacity each year. Second class is and agricultural phase combines of station, currently we has in do pilot, will in Central of a place do such a station, although said it and large station of category should almost, but it core of is can effective to solution Central land problem, and now and agricultural combines from a species degree Shang said investment cost increased has, but for station, it do for agricultural big shed of extra proceeds also increased has. Third category is what we call a distributed access, current distributed access and we are already considering this business model, we should say in distributed access entire industry this year there should be a breakthrough. There are some small solar applied products, the relatively small, I need make no elaboration.
Benefit from trimming the background spaceflight machine, a lot of our peers or the media asks me, what exactly is our core competency? I think our core competence in strict sense is our project for ability and skills as a financing.
Our aerospace electromechanical components, aerospace-quality engineering. While a maintenance company in Gansu province has set up a company. The profitability of power stations rely on electricity, how to ensure that electricity production and is good and steady 25 years power output is the key. In the area of distributed access, we will also take this mode, just distributed it to some objective factors as opposed to large power plants can be much more complex, we have been on our first investment in the technical specifications and construction of internal norm or internal norm.
In terms of rating quality, when we are doing system integration design compatibility with particular emphasis on major equipment, systems integration is our strength. Our understanding of costs does not mean that the construction costs and pursue the lowest capital cost of what we think is not responsible for customer, give the customer assures lowest life cycle cost 25. Is operation and maintenance company will be set up because we think photovoltaic operation is a special product, it has characteristics of PV and characteristics of high pressure, and grid interfacing is the characteristics of the electric power company from a professional we hired a professional team, then in combination with my own PV team make it a combo.
Reporter: are you referring to “internal controls” is risk control?
Wu: that’s right. We made over more than 600 power plants, the quality, the technology is still very confident. And we suspect that distributed power station’s legal and business conditions, as well as national policies are not perfect. We have developed a series of specifications, project selection was done, according to our financial model financial investors as mutually agreed, we went ahead. Distributed project financing issues have all been resolved, now we are concerned about is how to control the risk, ensuring a steady revenue to our clients.
Reporter: spaceflight machine expects to sell this year how many PV?
Hao Wu: we as a whole are expected to be sold to 400MW. Portfolio is concentrated in five Northwestern provinces, plus eight provinces of Hebei, Shanxi, Yunnan.
Reporter: spaceflight machine time for PV investment institutions reached an agreement, completes the plant immediately after the transfer?
Hao Wu: we don’t want to make a premature sign strategic agreement. This is a culture of spaceflight machine to sell this standard involves two aspects, from an investment standpoint is a rigorous process. Not only are customers in the us, we also selected customer. Plants for sale we are to turn off State CDB loan, involves State CDB we are selling this customer recognition. Now only in the implementation process, but I feel that this is a two-way process, rather than used to be a one-way process. Many companies are most interested in this one, in addition to the technology, integration, project gets, we are truly to make photovoltaic power plant into a deep understanding of financial products is well done.
Reporter: you are the industry’s first in preparation for these businesses.
Hao Wu: Yes, we understand PV from a financial perspective, so no other companies sell power station, we give customers he can think of in our range of value-added services to do.
