Sanyo Will Focus On the Name Change At Ecobuild »

Monday 12th March 2012

SANYO Component Europe GmbH (SANYO), a group company of Panasonic, will be exhibiting at this year's Ecobuild.

The focus will be on the upcoming "Panasonic" brand change for SANYO HIT solar modules, which will take affect from 1 April 2012. 

In addition, the team will also be displaying information about the Panasonic HIT Premium Installer Programme, the company's PV installer support programme. Launched in September 2011 in the UK following similar successful schemes introduced in other countries in Europe, the programme is designed to support PV installers in the UK, providing them with sales leads from their region, the latest information on products and technology and their own customisable micro site to help promote their business.

On display at the booth will be a number of models from the HIT[1] solar module series. HIT solar modules are based on thin mono crystalline silicon wafers surrounded by ultra-thin amorphous silicon layers to deliver high conversion efficiency, outstanding temperature characteristics and higher output power on a given roof area compared to conventional crystalline modules. 

Exhibited at the booth this year will be the HIT N240, the company's HIT solar module with a conversion efficiency of 19.0%, the HIT HD250, with a conversion efficiency of 18.0%, and the HIT Double bifacial solar module series, as well as a preview of the upcoming "Black Back-Sheet" solar module.

 [1] The name "HIT" comes from "Heterojunction with Intrinsic Thin-layer".
