Encapsulant, backsheet components of a module play have significant role in performance and life of solar modules

RenewSys India, an integrated manufacturer of solar photovoltaic (PV) modules and its key components — encapsulants, backsheets and solar PV Cells, has increased the manufacturing capacity of its encapsulant lines to 3 GW (from its current 1.65 GW) and backsheet capacity to 4 GW (from the existing 3 GW).

The company has decided to invest and expand the facilities at Bengaluru in the backdrop of the growing domestic solar PV industry and based on the government’s policies to promote local manufacturing (#Vocalforlocal) through various initiatives under the Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan.

The RenewSys Hyderabad facility is an innovation hub and manufactures bi-facial and other modules. Apart from being a hub for R&D, it is home to the first Intertek-certified Satellite Testing Laboratory at Hyderabad where solar modules can be tested under various conditions like damp heat, temperature cycles, and UV exposure variances, among others.
