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.”

    Forecasting the evolution of a young, dynamic industry is by definition an uncertain business, and solar is no exception. Rarely, if ever, do the numbers broadcast by any of the various bodies involved in the PV prediction game tally, and even historical deployment rates remain the subject of hot debate. The paradox is that getting forecasts broadly right is going to become increasingly important over the next few years, particularly for those involved in producing the equipment that will support whatever levels of demand come to pass.
