Awards and Tests
The Winner Takes It All
7The Q.PEAK RSF L-G4.2 convinces Intersolar Award jury, the Solar Power Portal Award jury and PV magazine jury with reinforced steel-frame concept and many additional innovations Reinforced steel frame design, decentralized junction box, easy mounting system and Q.ANTUM technology combine numerous advantages for higher yields and system performance as well as lower installation cost and lower LCOE.
Receiving the award on behalf of Hanwha Q CELLS, the company´s Global CTO, Ph.D. Daniel JW Jeong, said:
“We are very pleased about the judgement of the Intersolar Award Jury. Our new steel frame module combines a number of innovations on different levels with our high performance cell technology Q.ANTUM. The improvements in terms of performance, installation cost and LCOE are such that we believe this technology is likely to be setting the next industry standard regarding solar modules for utility scale applications.”
Solar + Power Award for Excellence - Innovation
The Solar + Power Awards were created 7 years ago, to recognise the whole value chain and those people, products and services that develop innovative manufacturing and product approaches. The Solar + Power Awards 2017 categories consider the whole value chain from materials to end product, from process to individual. The judges are the industry itself. Last year, over 4,800 industry professionals cast 30,000 votes to create our winners through online and web portals. Q CELLS got the award for Excellence Innovation. Judge’s remark: "Hanwha Q CELLS is commended for its Q.ANTUM technology that enhances conventional PERC cell performance through nano coatings while also controlling degradation effects (PID, LID, and LeTID) for increased efficiency and quality."
PHOTON MODULE YIELD MEASUREMENT 2014: Q.PRO IS THE BEST POLYCRYSTALLINE SOLAR MODULE
The Q.PRO solar modules outperform their competition and come out as the No. 1 poly-crystalline module in the 2014 PHOTON module yield measurement test. The Q.PRO-G2 235 Wp modules have been the top-performing poly-crystalline modules of 147 different PV modules from 107 manufacturers.

“Top Brand PV Modules Europe 2017” for Hanwha Q CELLS
In 2017 Hanwha Q CELLS obtained the “Top Brand PV” Seal (modules) of EuPD Research (Hoehner Research & Consulting Group) for the markets in Germany, France, Italy and Great Britain.
EuPD Research regularly evaluates the brand management of module and inverter manufacturers in Germany, France, Italy and Great Britain. They analyze, how companies positively differentiate their products and services as well as the own company from other options in the market and thereby further develop and manage the brand. For the release of the “Top Brand PV” Seal EuPD Research consult installers on brand awareness, brand evaluation, customers’ selection and buying decisions as well as sales.
OUR SOLAR MODULES ARE TOP PERFORMERS EVEN IN HARSH CLIMATES
Q CELLS modules are tested under climatic condtions far beyond the moderate climate of Germany. Even in such climate conditions, Q CELLS modules maintained its leading position.
- Alice Springs, Australia: unbeaten in the dry, hot Australian bush for more than two years (www.dkasolarcentre.com.au).
- Saudi Arabia: even the desert sand dust cannot harm our modules.
- New Delhi, India: even in humid, subtropical conditions our test systems achieve a performance ratio of more than 80 %.
