Large solar cell with a new maximum efficiency of 24.2%
We want to bring your attention to one of the latest news from the renewable energy website about the Asian module manufacturer-Jinkosolar, which has announced its large monocrystalline silicon N-type TOPCon solar cell has reached a maximum efficiency of 24.2 %.
How did they do it?
The tests have been carried out in the testing center for the measuring of the quality of photovoltaic and wind solutions of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).
To achieve this, the manufacturer has used the so-called hot technology, a novelty in the innovation, and R&D at the efficiency level.
JinkoSolar’s new strategy
Based on all this, we were not surprised by JinkoSolar’s statement a few weeks ago, that the Chinese manufacturer would move his focus onto creating a strategy based on the construction of a global research network capable of accelerating technological innovations. In fact, Jinkosolar is strongly committed to developing advanced technology photovoltaic solutions in close collaboration with the Institute for Solar Energy Research of Singapore, which works with both mono and polycrystalline technology; the University of New South Wales and the Australian National University.
Who are JinkoSolar Holding Co Ltd?
It is one of the main Asian manufacturers, which distributes its products and markets its solutions and services in more than eighty countries, employs over 12,000 employees, spread across six factories and owns 16 subsidiaries: two in Japan, and one in: Singapore, India, Turkey, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Australia, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates.
JinkoSolar is a truly vertically integrated company, with an annual production capacity of 9.2 GW in silicon ingots and wafers, 6.5 GW in solar cells and 10 GW in solar modules (data as of September, 2018).
