JinkoSolar Holding Co. is touting a major technical breakthrough for its 182 mm high-efficiency N-type monocrystalline silicon TOPCon solar cell: a new record with the maximum solar conversion efficiency of 26.89%.
This result — which breaks Jinko’s own record — has been independently confirmed by the National PV industry Measurement and Testing Center.
The R&D department has developed advanced metallization enhancement technology, high energy bulk material passivation technology and high performance light trapping passivating contact technology. These advanced technologies can be applicable to large area solar cells.
“I want to thank our talented R&D team for their efforts in creating this important milestone in the innovation of the company’s products and solutions,” says Dr. Jin Hao, CTO of Jinko Solar Co. “We will continue to invest in R&D innovation and mass production capabilities, and to accelerate the pace of industry upgrading for advanced N-type product.”
JinkoSolar’s self-developed HOT technologies, and a series of material upgrades were integrated into the cell process to set this new record for maximum conversion efficiency of 26.89%.
