PVTIME - JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (the "Company," or "JinkoSolar") (NYSE: JKS), one of the largest and most innovative solar module manufacturers in the world, today announced that the maximum solar conversion efficiency of its large-area N-type monocrystalline silicon solar cells reached 24.79%, and have set a world record for large-size contact-passivated solar cells. This result was independently confirmed by the Institute for Solar Energy Research in Hamelin (ISFH), Germany.
JinkoSolar's R&D teams of experts in silicon wafer, solar cells
and solar modules have made significant breakthroughs in the field of
high efficiency and high power of cells and modules for many years.The
record-breaking mono-crystalline silicon solar cell was fabricated on a
high quality CZ mono-Si substrate, with a practical size of 267.72cm2,
and several advanced technologies have been implemented to achieve this
new record of 24.79%, including passivating contact technologies,
advanced diffusion system, surface passivation and advanced
anti-reflection technologies, and a series of material upgrade were
integrated into the cell process. The record-breaking mono-crystalline
silicon solar cell will be gradually applied to product production.
"JinkoSolar has reached a key R&D milestone and our commitment
towards technological innovation in silicon material, cell fabrication
and module processing technologies has led to multiple world records for
the efficiency of solar cells and modules. We are very proud to break
the world record with advanced large-area N-type cell in the world, and
this innovative cell technology also holds the world record for PV
module efficiency," commented Dr. Jin Hao, CTO of JinkoSolar.
"We will constantly invest in upgrading technologies to achieve mass
production, and to lead the way by providing high efficiency and
competitive industrial products for our global customers."
