Further, the patent-in-suit was granted in the United States in August 2020 and relates to REC Group’s award-winning split cell and junction box technology.

The Norway-headquartered company said that it had developed the technology in-house and has manufactured products incorporating this technology for more than half a decade in it’s Singapore production site. It’s patented solar cell assembly technology addresses the decreased overall current in solar modules caused by partial shading resulting in increased module power output and module efficiency. 

Commenting on the development, Dr. Shankar G. Sridhara, Chief Technology Officer of REC Group, said that that “REC Group’s R&D resources, time, and investments have significantly contributed to a new set of industry standards.”

Dr. Shankar further added that “REC Group filed this action to protect its intellectual property, investments, and reputation, as well as to encourage more innovation in the industry. The more solar companies invest in developing groundbreaking innovation, the more improvement we will see in efficiencies and costs per kWh and achieving full access to renewable energy generation and consumption for communities. As a global, pioneering solar energy company, we champion intellectual property rights and fair competition. This also means that we will rigorously defend our rights when they are being violated.”
