The company has ramped R&D activities to incorporate high-efficiency PERC (Passivated Emitter Rear Cell) and bifacial PERC cell technology as well as a focus on cell to module (CTM) loss reductions ahead of entering into volume production.
Risen Energy claimed to be the first PV manufacturer to achieve the gigawatt-scale mass production for bifacial AlOx passivated PERC technology.
In November 2018, Risen Energy said that its bifacial AlOx passivated PERC modules realized an average cell efficiency of 22.19%, with the maximum production line efficiency up to 22.51%, and claimed to be the first PV manufacturer to accomplish mass production of 370Wp PERC bifacial dual-glass modules qualified for China’s “Top Runner” PV power plant projects.
Recently, Risen Energy reported that its JÄGER HP 72-cell module conversion efficiencies had reached up to 21%, setting a new record, according to the company.
The company has also been developing, manufacturing and marketing a range of high-performance (high transmission) EVA films for PV modules, including an anti-PID (Potential Induced Degradation) EVA adhesive.
The company has also partnered with research institutes such as Chinese Academy of Sciences and Massachusetts Institute Technology (MIT).
