Silevo reaches over 21% conversion efficiency on Triex technology

Silevo announced that its Triex solar technology has reached greater than 21% conversion efficiency at the company’s high volume manufacturing facility. Triex is a hybrid solar module that combines crystalline silicon N-type substrates, thin-film passivation layers and a unique tunnelling oxide layer in a single module.

Both the Triex R- and U-Series have been fully certified by the International Electrotechnical Commission and Underwriters Laboratories. Silevo is shipping commercially to its first customers and holds a 250MW pipeline of agreements in Europe, the US and China.

“We are pleased to commence commercial production of Silevo modules with greater than 21% conversion efficiency,” said Zheng Xu, founder and CEO of Silevo. “With a huge reduction in panel prices over the past two years, it’s now time to focus on a technology that can bring significant BOS savings, as well as an increased energy yield. Silevo’s Triex technology is the first offering that couples high efficiency, high yield and scalable, cost-effective production, which will result in the next wave of profitable cost reduction for all players along the PV value chain.”

  • Photovoltaics International 25th Edition

    In this issue we offer some insights into what the next wave of photovoltaic technologies may look like as that upturn gathers pace. Industry observers have been in broad agreement that the major next-gen PV technology innovations won’t happen straight away. But there’s also little doubt that the search is now on in earnest for the breakthroughs that will come to define the state of the art in the industry in the years to come.

  • Manufacturing The Solar Future: The 2014 Production Annual

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
