After recently setting a test record of 25.25% for large-area N-type monocrystalline silicon solar cells, JinkoSolar Holding Co. says the maximum solar conversion efficiency of its high-efficiency solar module reached 23.53%, outperforming the previous record of 23.01%, also set by JinkoSolar, in January 2021. The result was independently tested and confirmed by TÜV Rheinland, one of the world’s leading testing service provider on internationally recognized safety and quality standards.
How they did it: The module’s breakthrough performance was the result of adopting JinkoSolar’s TOPCon cell technology fused with a new-type of welding and packaging technology. The module design not only reduces the internal resistance loss of the module, but improves power efficiency and module appearance.
“Every new record achievement demonstrates our R&D capabilities and is great motivation for the invaluable work we do to upgrade industry standards,” commented Hao Jin, Chief Technology Officer of JinkoSolar Co. “We are confident that the investments we have made in R&D will lead to more innovative products for higher efficiency and reliability, and leveraged on our extensive global sales network, our leadership will be further strengthened and has positioned us to promote technological progress and green transformation.”
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
