SANYO Component Europe GmbH is very pleased to announce that it will be showcasing a
variety of its energy creation and energy storage technology at Intersolar 2012, the world’s largest
solar technology trade show, to be held from June 13th to June 15th at the New Munich Trade Fair
Centre in Germany. The team will be happy to explain in detail products and projects to visitors at
Stand A1, 170. A live stage will see presentations and discussions to further attract and inspire
guests at the Panasonic booth.
On April 1st 2012, SANYO’s highly appraised HIT® solar modules have been rebranded as
Panasonic HIT®. They are now an integral part of Panasonic’s new Eco Solutions domain company,
which provides comprehensive solutions for both household and business, to promote lifestyles
with virtually zero CO₂ emissions throughout the world. At the Panasonic booth, visitors can follow
the cycle from energy creation via panels, over feed-in via inverters, to storage in battery systems.
As to HIT® modules, the display will feature the new black back sheet module, on sale this
summer. With a world highest module efficiency of 18.6 % (cell conversion efficiency: 21.1%)
among black back sheet modules in the market, this is a powerful alternative for the aesthetically
minded house owner. Also on display will be the HIT® N240, the most efficient HIT® solar
module to date with a module conversion efficiency of 19.0 % (cell conversion efficiency: 21.6 %)
and the HIT® H250, with a module conversion efficiency of 18.0 %（cell conversion efficiency:
20.8 %）. The booth further offers closer insights into cell production, giving extra information on
HIT® solar modules, which are based on thin mono-crystalline silicon wafers surrounded by
ultra-thin amorphous silicon layers. Extra efficient, HIT® modules are also renowned for their
unparalleled reliability – being the only PV manufacturer to publish their warranty claims,
Panasonic is proud to state an incredibly low 0.0023 % on product performance in the EU market.
In addition, the booth will also feature the “Smart Energy Storage System”, a Lithium-ion battery
system with customizable battery management system. The Smart Energy Storage System is ideal
for a wide variety of energy storage applications, from small scale residential systems to large scale
storage systems, allowing for a wide variety of benefits ranging from electricity cost reductions for
individual consumers by increasing self-consumption of electricity to reducing the usage of
electricity from the grid to grid stabilization for grid operators and utility companies. The system
has been successfully adapted by industry partners launching their products in the spring of 2012.
As Panasonic is aiming to become the No 1 Green Energy Company in the Electronics Industry by
2018, the company is moving towards providing solutions for clean, sustainable energy. And the
effects have been most inspiring, as visitors will agree after seeing the presentation on the Tokai
University Solar Car, which won the World Solar Challenge 2011
