Jinko solar announced that it has achieved a major technical breakthrough for its 182 mm high-efficiency N-type monocrystalline silicon solar cell. JinkoSolar has set a new record again with the maximum solar conversion efficiency of 26.1% for its 182 mm and above large-size monocrystalline silicon TOPCon solar cell. This result has been independently confirmed by the National Institute of Metrology, China (“NIM”).
The R&D department has developed interface defect passivation, highly transparent poly silicon film and ultra thin metallization technologies based on laser dopped Selective Emitter. These advanced technologies can be applicable to large area solar cells. 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 26.1%, compared with the record set this April reaching 25.7%.
Dr. Jin Hao, CTO of Jinko Solar Co., Ltd. commented, “We are proud to achieve a major breakthrough in the conversion efficiency of N-type TOPCon cells in less than half a year, breaking the record we have previously set for N-type monocrystalline silicon solar cells. Thanks to the tireless efforts of our talented R&D team for creating this important milestone in the innovation of the company’s products and solutions. 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. We are confident to provide better returns to our customers with our cutting-edge technology and reliable supply chain.”
