In this work we give an overview of the module monitoring results achieved within the H2020 funded project called HighLite. A dedicated online monitoring platform has been developed for the project to group and treat the data from all partners with homogeneous procedures. Monitoring of advanced prototype modules developed in the project and based on various cells and interconnection approaches, like silicon-heterojunction (SHJ)-shingle, TopCon-shingle, cut interdigital back-contact cells (cut-IBC) are reported. We describe key learnings from monitoring modules for various applications including building-applied PV (BAPV) and building-integrated PV (BIPV). Annual energy yield up to 1900 kWh/kWp is expected in Cadarache (France) based on HighLite PV technology. Temperature corrected performance ratios are used for a ranking of the new technologies against the reference PERC modules.
