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.
The first ever event dedicated specifically to solar PV Heterojunction manufacturing and multi-GW production challenges and opportunities. Meet the global community driving Heterojunction to multi-GW status in mass production today in the spectacular setting of St. Petersburg in Russia.
Going into its fifth year over 200 delegates from 150 companies and 20 countries representing the PV supply chain will gather in Malaysia to discuss the technology roadmaps for PV cell advancement in GW markets. The scope of the event has been expanded this year, to cover developments in wafer supply and thin-film investments and technologies alongside all the regular benefits to all stakeholders tracking PV technology and investment trends for the next 5 years.
