JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (“JinkoSolar” or the “Company”) (NYSE: JKS), one of the largest and most innovative PV module manufacturers in the world, announced that it has won a contract from GroupShops, a procurement and project management company in Israel, to provide 621 pieces of its full black BIPV modules for the National Library of Israel in Kiryat HaLeum, Jerusalem.
As an international landmark and beacon of pride in Israel, the Library Project deploys Jinko’s latest N-type full black BIPV modules covering a roof area of 1016㎡with a total capacity reaching 0.19MW. The BIPV module improves the thermal insulation of the Library, leading to reduced heat loss.
On top of that, Jinko’s BIPV module boasts inherent advantages of integration in module design without metal wire exposition, which significantly improves the aesthetic appearance of the building. And thanks to its N-type cell efficiency, the BIPV module has the added benefit of generating more electricity over the building’s life.
“Previously, the technology of BIPV is not widely used due to higher costs compared to conventional PV system. But we’ve made significant progress in the development of the BIPV systems,” said Dany Qian, Vice President of JinkoSolar, “we’ve played a leading role in the promotion of the cutting-edge N-type cell technology and always seek for cost optimization of BIPV system. We have every reason to believe that BIPV is a promising technology in the days to come.”
