JinkoSolar has beaten its own monocrystalline passivated emitter rear contact (PERC) cell efficiency record notching up a conversion rate of 23.45%.
JinkoSolar has beaten its own monocrystalline passivated emitter rear cell (PERC) cell efficiency record notching up a conversion rate of 23.45%.
The achievement has been verified by the Chinese Academy of Sciences' Photovoltaic and Wind Power System Quality Test Center. It comes just a few weeks after the company registered a milestone of 22.78%.
Jinko claims it is now its fifth such record in the space of a year, which it credits in large part to the integration of a number of manufacturing innovations including data collection, yield traceability, smart diagnostics and self-reporting enabling improved workflow efficiencies at its fabs.
“With the assistance of intelligent manufacturing, we can translate these world record learnings into mass production, which will undoubtedly make a big splash in the market,” claimed Kangping Chen, CEO, JinkoSolar.
“As the world's largest solar PV company, JinkoSolar has mastered its physical production processes and products. However, JinkoSolar has not stopped pioneering evident in the successful development and implementation of its own digitalization strategy. Effective introduction and implementation of smart manufacturing will help JinkoSolar further improve its production flows. Data-driven innovations will be the foundation of its future success," he added.

Understanding bifacial’s true potential: technology innovation and technical bankability of bifacial
The deployment of bifacial PV technology is growing rapidly. It has proven to be the most effective solution to reduce levelised energy costs (LCOE) and increase the Investment Rate of Return (IRR) of PV systems, offering substantially improved energy yield compared to the use of standard mono-facial modules. Even though the concept is not new, it has been a niche technology for many years with uncertainties in predicting performance and optimizing installations. Today, bifacial technology is becoming mainstream, with capacity available at the multi-gigawatt scale and with corresponding global deployment of project pipelines. Join this webinar, presented by Andrea Viaro, as he discusses the award-winning Swan bifacial module with transparent backsheet from DuPont, its features, benefits and differences vs. standard glass-glass modules. Jinko Solar’s new bifacial technology innovations will also be highlighted, specifically covering profitability in deployment at utility-scale PV power plants. Andrea will be joined by Dr.Lars Podlowski who will give a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of bifacial PV technology, with a special focus on benefits and risks industry buyers and investors should pay attention to.
