Yingli Presents CleanARC® Anti-reflective Glass Coating at the World Future Energy Summit

Published on 2015-01-23. Author : SpecialChem

BAODING, China and ABU DHABI -- Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited "Yingli Green Energy" or the "Company"), one of the world's leading solar panel manufacturers, also known as "Yingli Solar," announced at the World Future Energy Summit that innovative CleanARC® anti-reflective (AR) glass coating is now available on all Yingli product lines. Developed by California-based Enki Technology and offered through Yingli, CleanARC® coating enables panels to generate more energy over time while simultaneously reducing cleaning requirements, creating additional project value in comparison to conventionally coated panels.

Due to their high resistance to abrasion and environmental degradation, Yingli's CleanARC® coated solar panels are ideal for project sites with harsh environmental conditions such as sandstorms, sea mist, high humidity, and extreme temperature fluctuations. CleanARC® coated solar panels can also reduce operations and maintenance expenses because the coating's structure and hydrophobic properties enable more effective self-cleaning than conventional AR coatings.

"We are pleased to bring this unique product to market in partnership with Yingli. Glass coatings are a deceptively simple component that create long-term financial implications for solar project owners. Extensive lab and field testing demonstrates the clear advantage of multi-functional CleanARC® coatings in challenging operational environments," commented Kevin Kopczynski, Chief Executive Officer of Enki Technology.

"It is extremely promising that our new CleanARC® coated solar panels have already spurred project development in areas where solar adoption has been constrained by harsh climates. By driving innovation across all PV technology components, from cells to AR coating, we are making solar power a pragmatic clean energy solution everywhere the sun shines," commented Dr. Dengyuan Song, Chief Technology Officer of Yingli Green Energy.
