A year ago at SNEC, JinkoSolar displayed its current production version of its N-type mono module.
Leading ‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member JinkoSolar has set further records by establishing new P-type and N-type PV module power ratings ahead of the largest annual industry exhibition, SNEC in Shanghai, China.
JinkoSolar said that it had set the record for a P-type monocrystalline module (60-cell) format peak power rating of 370W and an N-type monocrystalline module (60-cell) format peak power rating of 378.6W.
Both records were said to have been verified by TUV Rheinland (Shanghai) Co., Ltd.
Dr. Jin Hao, Vice President of JinkoSolar commented, "Every technological breakthrough results from a strong pioneering spirit and constant search for excellence. Companies with strong independent innovation capabilities are able to grasp opportunities in fiercely competitive markets and establish leadership. JinkoSolar always applies advanced technologies to large-scale applications rapidly to accelerate the popularization of PV applications."
The company noted that its P-type mono modules contain JinkoSolar's world record high-efficiency cells, which combined with low electricity loss technology reduces the module internal resistance and improves its fill factor to achieve the new performance record.
The N-type modules were said to use dual glass, deploying passivating contact technology to achieve high efficiency with front-side peak power reaching 378.6W.
JinkoSolar has recently reset the P-type monocrystalline cell conversion efficiency record at 23.95%, through a range of wafer to cell optimisation, notably its selective emitter (SE) formation.
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.
