< VIDEO REVIEW >
One of the world's largest solar power plants was recently built in southeast Italy. 32,202 Panasonic HIT solar modules have been installed at this power plant to produce approximately 7.6MW of electricity.
HIT solar modules take advantage of a hybrid structure developed from Panasonic's unique technologies which enable amorphous silicon layers to reduce energy loss and to realize world's highest level of energy conversion. The high performance these solar modules have exhibited in people's homes have been very highly regarded. And as a result, theses solar modules have begun to be adopted for many large-scale power generation projects around the world. These solar modules that have been installed in Italy are truly a spectacle. As the demand for renewable energy rises, we may be seeing such a sight all around the world.

The HIT solar modules have a unique hybrid structure that reduces energy loss and realizes an excellent conversion efficiency. Ordinarily, the conversion efficiency of solar modules declines at high temperatures, but Panasonic's HIT solar modules can maintain a high output even under hot temperatures.
At the solar power plant in Italy, these solar modules change the direction they face once every few hours following the sun's trajectory with the "tracking system" to generate even more power. This helps improve output by 20 to 30%.
The latter portion of the video introduces HIT solar modules that have been implemented in other parts of the world.
On the left you can see the HIT solar modules at the Infineon Raceway located in California, USA. And on the right you can see graphics of what the Blackfriars Station in London, UK, will look like when complete. As you can see, a wide range of Panasonic's energy solutions are in use in large-scale projects around the world.
