Trina Solar wins prestigious international design award for Vertex S+ module series

Trina Solar has won the 2024 German Design Award for its Vertex S+ n-type dual-glass rooftop PV module series in the ‘Excellent Product Design’ category. The German Design Award, founded by the German Design Council in 1953, is one of the world’s most prestigious design awards. Only works that have passed the review or recommendation of the German Design Committee can be nominated, and most of the nominated works are international design award-winning designs, also known as “winners among winners”.

The recognition of the Vertex S+ modules’ design and aesthetic value by the German Design Awards follows the success of Trina Solar’s Vertex S module, which won the Red Dot Design Award, the international industrial design award known as the ‘Oscar’ of the design world, last year.

“Winning the German Design Award is not only confirmation of the creative and innovative design and performance of our module, but recognition of the entire concept of our aesthetic product range, which Vertex S+ is part of” said Gonzalo de la Viña, President EMEA at Trina Solar. “As a pioneer with black modules, we have sparked a global trend in the integration of solar energy and technological aesthetic experience. With the continuous growth of the global residential PV market, more and more high-end users have higher requirements for the appearance of PV modules. Aesthetic modules have become the first choice of high-end users thanks to their appearance and performance.”

The module series aims to achieve the perfect black look in every detail to a high standard. High uniformity between all cells, between cells and frames, and between modules ensures the integrity in building exterior design. The design also aims to create more visual quality for users on their rooftops and promote a beautiful way for thousands of homes worldwide to experience solar energy.

Trina Solar launched the Vertex S+ dual-glass module series for rooftops in February, setting off a new round of PV aesthetics innovation in the global middle- and high-end residential market. Based on 210mm rectangular silicon wafer (210R) cell technology, this series of modules is combined with n-type i-TOPCon advanced technology. Its triple-cut cells have been designed for electrical compatibility with 99 percent of mainstream inverters, thus seamlessly integrating with existing system components. The 1.6+1.6mm lightweight dual-glass structure ensures ultra-high reliability and safety of the module, while maintaining the same low weight as comparable standard backsheet products.

The NEG9RC.27 Clear Black module is the Vertex S+ series’ flagship product. It comes with black cells and a black frame. It incorporates bifacial cell technology with transparent encapsulation for additional power gain from the back side of the module, making it a universal premium solution for any type of residential and commercial rooftops. Additionally, it is perfect for specific application settings such as carports, public spaces, and agricultural projects.

On the other hand, the monofacial NEG9R.28 Vertex S+ module comes with a white encapsulant for top rated power output of up to 450Wp, thus maximising performance on limited rooftop spaces.

The innovative Vertex S+ product series brings users a richer range of choices to customise and add more aesthetic possibilities to their roofs.
