CHANGCHUN, China, January.
19, 2020 /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 conversion efficiency of its P-type PERC and N-type HOT
bifacial solar modules reached 21.82% and 22.49%, respectively, breaking the
previous world record and setting a new industry standard for solar cell
efficiency. These results were verified during testing conducted by TÜV Rheinland,
an independent provider of technical services for testing, inspection,
certification, consultation and training.
JinkoSolar was able to significantly improve efficiency for its mass
produced modules by applying newly developed ARC and advanced metallization
technologies and existing and proven proprietary technologies to its large-area
N-type HOT high-efficient cell design. New Tiling Ribbon (TR) technology was
also incorporated into the cell design which eliminates any inter-cell gap,
ensuring high-efficiency and high-reliability, while significantly improving
the module's appearance. The high-efficiency modules also help reduce the
levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) as the industry approaches grid parity
Dr. Jin Hao, Vice President of JinkoSolar commented, "We are
committed to providing high-quality modules that will efficiently and reliably
operate under the toughest conditions. This new world record will pave the way
for a new round of technological and industry upgrades in module efficiency
with JinkoSolar leading the way. Going forward, we will accelerate the
application of the latest and most advanced technologies to the mass production
of our solar products which will drive an increase in cost-effectiveness and
promote grid parity on a global scale."
