Bifacial module is one of upcoming module trends. The lastest developments in Solar Industry across the Globe has attracted attention towards bifacial modules. China is a good example to study this trend. PV InfoLink reported that share of bifacial modules increased from 2% in 2017 to 10% in 2018. This soar in bifacial module installation was driven by China's Top Runner Program. Among which, more than 90% is dual glass encapsulation.

But there are questions underlying the dual glass technology that deserve attention. Glass-glass bifacial module is 30% heavier than mono-facial module. How will it affect BOS and LCOE of Solar Project? The outcomes of higher weight are surprisingly tricky to sort out. Particularly for the array deployment in locations which are hard to access, such as high mountain areas, adding more challenges for panel transportation and installation. As a result, the increased cost is expected to roughly offset the benefits gained from bifacial module.

JinkoSolar's newly launched Swan bifacial series with transparent backsheet intends to address this issue in addition to offering numerous benefits. Its feature of 25% less weight has already beaten the glass-glass bifacial.

Adaptation of bifacial modules is expected to boost generation of Solar PV Plants substantially. JinkoSolar Swan module can generate up to 415 Wp from the front side and 5 to 25% extra power gain from the rear side. When compared with mono-facial modules, the incremental generation in Swan with transparent backsheet is more than that by glass-glass bifacial module. In addition to generation advantage, negligible weight increase in mono-facial module positions Swan as better alternative in bifacial module category.

At SNEC 2018, Jinkosolar talked about bringing Cheetah in market. Despite 5/31 turmoil, Cheetah received a huge response across the Globe. It enjoyed tremendous success to the date including the regions that are price sensitive like India. Earlier this year, JinkoSolar has made it clear that in addition to Cheetah, Swan bifacial panel is another major pillar of its business going forward.

The reason behind JinkoSolar's confidence of 40-50% growth in 2019 over its impressive World-leading shipment of 2018 is its important business philosophy. That is "We are going to deliver what our customers care about, which is performance improvement without sacrificing our commitment towards Module Quality & Reliability" This is a real and important point to be noted.
