Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Award 2016 goes to Honeywell Solar Modules


The Honeywell solar modules are innovative, cost effective, and easy to integrate, enabling end users to adapt to the changing technological demands of the renewable energy industry.

Mountain View, California - 2016, May 9th - Based on recent analysis of the solar power market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Global Solar Trading as the recipient of the 2016 Global New Product Innovation award. Global Solar Trading has demonstrated its high responsiveness to customers' requirements with the rollout of its Honeywell photovoltaic (PV) solar modules. The company, along with its partners, aims to manage costs, increase output, improve return on investment (ROI), and broaden the market for a clean, renewable energy source.

"One of the dominant benefits of the Honeywell solar module is its versatility. It is compact, lightweight, and suitable for residential, commercial, and industrial projects," said Frost & Sullivan Program Manager Pritil Gunjan. "Importantly, the modules offer a valuable combination of quality, performance, and warranty and are extremely efficient and reliable in a variety of environments. Some of their advantages include salt spray resistance for maritime applications, ammonia resistance for agricultural applications, and an ability to handle high snow and wind loads."

The quality of the solar panels enables both the 60 cell and 72 cell modules to aid seamless monitoring of the production process (ISO). The modules exhibit positive power tolerance, excellent low-light response, and potential induced degradation (PID) resistance as well as boast a 4-busbar design for improved performance. The modules come with a 20-year product warranty and a 25-year warranty on power output and online quality control check.

Global Solar Trading uses durable materials such as anodized aluminum alloy and ensures they comply with industry regulations of the country in which they are being deployed. Additionally, Global Solar Trading employs poly-crystalline cells, which allow the larger 72 cell modules to achieve performance efficiency of up to 16.5%, compared to the industry average of 15%. In large projects, these modules can help save installation and labor costs.

Significantly, Honeywell Solar Modules' customers can check test results of their solar panels through the company's unique Online Quality Control Check. This feature provides customers with a thorough insight into the quality, performance, and specifications of their installed solar modules. The Online Quality Control Check can be accessed through their website

"Global Solar Trading follows a customer-oriented approach in its business practices and is successfully expanding in the fast-emerging markets," observed Gunjan. "This has been made possible by its superior customer responsiveness and partnerships with industry suppliers."

The company supports an organization-wide culture of developing competitive solutions by employing a diverse team of skilled management and professionals with considerable technological expertise and experience. This deep industry knowledge and excellence in understanding customer needs have gone a long way in helping the company develop an innovative product to address those needs in the solar power market.

The award recognizes the value-added features/benefits of the product and the increased ROI it offers customers, which, in turn, increases customer acquisition and overall market penetration potential.
