JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. announced that the maximum conversion efficiency of its P-type PERC and N-type HOT bifacial solar modules reached 21.82% and 22.49%, respectively, breaking the previous world record and setting a new industry standard for solar cell efficiency. These results were verified during testing conducted by TÜV Rheinland, an independent provider of technical services for testing, inspection, certification, consultation and training.
JinkoSolar was able to significantly improve efficiency for its mass produced modules by applying newly developed ARC and advanced metallization technologies and existing and proven proprietary technologies to its large-area N-type HOT high-efficient cell design. New Tiling Ribbon (TR) technology was also incorporated into the cell design which eliminates any inter-cell gap, ensuring high-efficiency and high-reliability, while significantly improving the module's appearance. The high-efficiency modules also help reduce the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) as the industry approaches grid parity globally.
