China-based Risen Energy says mass-produce of its heterojunction (HJT) Hyper-ion solar modules has begun. The company plans to increase the production capacity of the HJT Hyper-ion solar cell and module to 5 GW by the first half of 2023, and then triple it to 15 GW in the following six months.
Since 2019, Risen Energy has invested heavily in research and development for materials, equipment, technology, and processes related to HJT technology. At the announcement press conference, Song Yifeng, the Product Director of Risen Energy, gave a keynote speech on the challenges and progress of industrializing HJT technology and discussed Risen’s focus on reshaping the n-type HJT product ecosystem while reducing costs.
Risen Energy has also launched targeted development projects for special packaging materials, special water-blocking process design, and anti-attenuation solutions, which have paved the way for mass production of the HJT Hyper-ion module.
Risen Energy tech
Risen Energy’s patented technology, Hyper-link, allows for the interconnection of ultra-thin cells with low silver consumption, reducing costs while ensuring power output and product reliability.
The power output of Risen Energy’s HJT Hyper-ion module reaches 710 W, with an efficiency exceeding 22.5%, which has been certified by TUV SÜD.
It also features a stable temperature coefficient and a high bifaciality of up to 85% ±5%, capable of maintaining its power output above 90% after 30 years of use.
Risen does not use a conventional metal frame. The alloy frame of the HJT Hyper-ion module boasts high strength with the tear-resistant capability of the steel material increased by 20%.
