Leading ‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member JinkoSolar has highlighted the significance and its capabilities behind setting multiple P-type multicrystalline PERC solar cell efficiency and module output records at PV CellTech 2018 technical conference held in Penang, Malaysia this week.
China-based integrated PV module manufacturer Wuxi Suntech Power Co said it had started supplying high-performance multicrystalline half-cut cell modules to European customers, offering power classes of 295/290W.
Major metallization paste producer Heraeus Photovoltaics said it had recently helped a customer achieve a validated world record in PERC (Passivated Emitter and Rear Cell) conversion efficiencies as strategic investments in R&D and staffing in Asia had been validated.
China-based integrated PV manufacturer Wuxi Suntech Power Co has started initial mass production of P-type multicrystalline wafers using its in-house developed metal assisted chemical etching (MACE) texturing process (black silicon) for diamond wire sawing.
Major Korean-based polysilicon producer OCI Chemical is expanding its production of high-purity polysilicon to meet greater demand for P-type monocrystalline wafers used with PERC (Passivated Emitter Rear Cell) technology.
Dedicated mono and multicrystalline wafer producer Rietech Solar, a subsidiary of diversified renewable energy firm Shunfeng International Clean Energy (SFCE) has selected Heraeus Photovoltaics new multicrystalline crucible barrier coating technology.
China-based polysilicon producer Daqo New Energy reported better than expected third quarter 2017 results, due to continued strong demand in China, coupled to a significant spike in polysilicon prices on supply chain shortages and annual facilities maintenance early execution.
Norway headquartered integrated PV module manufacturer REC Group has selected Aurora Solar Technologies inline measurement and control technology for the optimization of its Singapore fab’s multicrystalline PERC (Passivated Emitter Rear Cell) production.
Taiwan-based materials suppliers are benefiting from increased demand for diamond wire cut wafers for higher efficiency solar cells that is supporting higher prices in recent months.
Although profitability for many remains elusive sales have rebounded in September.
Leading ‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member JinkoSolar has reported a record solar cell efficiency of 22.04% for a P-type multicrystalline PERC (Passivated Emitter Rear Cell), using its practical sized (245.83cm2) wafer.
'Silicon Module Super League' (SMSL) member GCL System Integration Technology (GCL-SI) has again improved the efficiency of its multicrystalline Passivated Emitter and Rear Cell (PERC) with ‘black-silicon’ texture.
