1. Can you tell us more about LONGi’s new anti-dust panels and how they address the issue of dust accumulation on solar panels?


All praise to LONGI’s industry transforming move of adopting Back Contact Technology in it’s product range, LONGi’s newly developed anti-dust panels represent a significant advancement in addressing the common issue of dust accumulation on solar panels. This innovation is a testament to LONGi’s commitment to integrating field experience into its product development, highlighting its position as a forward-thinking and strategic entity in the green energy sector. By focusing on reducing the Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE), LONGi underscores its mission to enhance solar panel efficiency comprehensively. The company’s dedication to solar technology evolution is driven by the urgency to achieve carbon emission reductions rapidly. The innovative design of these panels not only tackles the challenges posed by dust and water accumulation but also simplifies ongoing operations and maintenance (O&M) efforts, thereby safeguarding project key performance indicators (KPIs) against the detrimental impacts of environmental substances. Additionally, the design’s effectiveness against snow accumulation further exemplifies LONGi’s relentless pursuit of durable and efficient solar solutions, aimed at contributing to a sustainable future for succeeding generations.


2. How do anti-dust panels help mitigate water accumulation on the edges of solar panels and improve panel efficiency?

Capitalising on efficiency levels achieved due to the back contact technology, Anti-dust panels are designed to enhance solar panel efficiency by mitigating water accumulation along the edges. Firstly, they achieve this by lowering the height of the base color and incorporating a minimal sliding angle, promoting water and dust to skid off the surface effortlessly. Secondly, a strategically placed slit within the panel’s frame serves as a drainage path, allowing water to flow downwards and away from the panel, further preventing accumulation and potential efficiency loss.

3. What inspired LONGi to develop these anti-dust panels, and what sets them apart from conventional panel designs?

LONGi’s commitment to innovation, is evident by their mission of testing various technologies to evolve the Solar Tech. Proof of it lies in adoption of the Back Contact technology. By investing 5% of it’s annual revenue back in R&D, LONGI’s puts innovation as a  cornerstone of its ESG policy encapsulated by the acronym LIGHT, where ‘I’ stands for Innovation, was the primary inspiration behind the development of these anti-dust panels. This dedication to innovation is fueled by a process of continuous feedback collection, learning from the execution of strategies, and incorporating these lessons into their work for perpetual improvement. LONGi distinguishes itself through a technology-oriented approach, setting its products apart from traditional solar panel offerings. This isn’t LONGi’s first departure from conventional practices; the company has a history of pioneering changes in the Solar Industry, LONGi led the solar industry’s shift from polysilicon to monocrystalline technology by investing in research and development to make monocrystalline production more economical and efficient, ultimately revolutionizing the industry with its focus on superior efficiency.

4. Can you elaborate on the potential cost savings associated with using LONGi’s anti-dust panels in terms of reduced maintenance and cleaning resources?

Utilizing LONGi’s Back Contact Technology based anti-dust panels has resulted in a 6% additional power gain compared to standard modules, according to the company’s R&D team. This enhancement, along with the estimated savings in cleaning costs ‘amounting to a third of the total project costs over its lifetime’ highlights the significant financial benefits of these panels, owing to their design that reduces dust accumulation and water retention, thereby diminishing the need for frequent manual cleaning and maintenance.

5. How does the launch of these anti-dust panels align with LONGi’s commitment to innovation and sustainability in the solar energy industry?

The introduction of LONGi’s anti-dust panels, part of the HiMOX6 – Guardian series, exemplifies the company’s adherence to its ESG policy, LIGHT, which stands for Lead, Innovate, Green, Harmonious, and Trustworthy. This development showcases LONGi’s leadership in the solar energy industry by pioneering the anti-dust design, highlighting their commitment to innovation through advanced mechanical engineering. Furthermore, by enhancing the efficiency of solar panels, thereby generating more clean power, LONGi contributes to environmental sustainability. The design’s reduced need for water in cleaning operations aligns with water conservation goals, supporting harmonious interaction with the environment. Additionally, by preventing water accumulation and sedimentation, the panels’ lifespan is extended, underlining LONGi’s reliability and trustworthiness in product development. Therefore, LONGI’s Back Contact Technology riden HiMOX6 panel variants, including Anti-Dust, are a testament of LONGI’s commitment to innovation and sustainability.

6. What impact do you foresee LONGi’s anti-dust panels having on the adoption of solar energy in regions with high dust levels, such as the Middle East?Firstly, the impact of Back contact technology is global and transformational. Which does not restrict the application of Guardian series Anti-Dust variant to Middle East but a globally adoptable product. Even in the regions, which are high on snow reception.So I won’t categorize it as a product for windy or dusty regions. However, talking of Middle Eastonly, the The deployment of LONGi’s anti-dust panels in regions with high dust levels, such as the Middle East, is anticipated to significantly influence the adoption of solar energy. By reducing the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE), these panels make solar projects more financially attractive to investors. This innovation is likely to draw foreign investment, capitalizing on the region’s abundant solar irradiation. Furthermore, it positions the Middle East towards becoming a self-sufficient green energy consumer and highlights its potential as a global clean energy exporter. The introduction of such advanced solar technologies in the Middle East underscores its emerging leadership in the global pursuit of a Net Zero landscape, making the region a pivotal player in sustainable energy development.
