Maxeon will also be showcasing its flagship Maxeon line of panels, which provide leading energy density, high energy yield, and superior shade tolerance as well as a 40-year power and product warranty. Alongside the Maxeon line, the company will be revealing its newest generation of Performance line solar panels, with high efficiency TOPCon cell technology offering improved aesthetics, increased mono or bifacial power generation, and a lower temperature coefficient for enhanced power density.
Additionally, Maxeon will announce that it has become a member of the European Solar PV Industry Alliance (ESIA) to better support the growth of a resilient solar value chain in the EU. The company is currently taking an active role in three working groups of the ESIA; "Non-pricing criteria": to emphasize the importance of ESG and human rights standards across the supply chain, "Supply chain": to ensure that the EU is capable of producing 30GW at each step of the supply chain by 2025; and "Financing": to fill OPEX and CAPEX gaps across the value chain and provide proposals for financing support and mechanisms and bring the European Solar Manufacturing back.
"The EU has set incredibly ambitious targets to grow a mature, domestic solar PV industry in just a few years. So, together with over 100 organizations, we're joining this race. Where we can, we want to be part of that effort towards Powering Positive Change™. With this crucial step, Maxeon confirms its desire to actively participate in the creation of a European photovoltaic ecosystem, bringing its experience and expertise as a consolidated manufacturer of high-efficiency modules," commented Mark Babcock, Chief Revenue Officer at Maxeon Solar Technologies.
