New record: Highest conversion efficiency reached in the solar industry

Innovation continues at JinkoSolar after recently setting a new test record of 25.25% for large-area N-type monocrystalline silicon solar cells.

The maximum solar conversion efficiency of its advanced high-efficiency solar module reached 23.53% and has outperformed the previous record of 23.01%, also set by JinkoSolar, in January 2021.

The conversion efficiency result was independently tested and confirmed by TÜV Rheinland, one of the world’s leading testing service providers on internationally recognised safety and quality standards.

The module’s breakthrough performance was the result of adopting JinkoSolar’s cutting-edge TOPCon cell technology fused with a new type of welding and packaging technology.

The module design not only reduces the internal resistance loss of the module but improves power efficiency and module appearance. This latest breakthrough has benefited from the track record of JinkoSolar’s R&D capabilities and industry-leading integrated technology, which will further contribute to the mass production of subsequent advanced products.

Dr Hao Jin, Chief Technology Officer of JinkoSolar Co., Ltd., commented on achieving the new record in solar conversion efficiency: “It is our long-standing commitment to providing customers with high-quality products that drive energy efficiency and reduces LCOE through technological innovation.

According to Dr Jin every new record achievement demonstrates the company’s R&D capabilities and is great motivation for the invaluable work JinkoSolar does to upgrade industry standards.

Dr Jin added: “We are confident that the investments we have made in R&D will lead to more innovative products for higher efficiency and reliability, and leverage on our extensive global sales network, our leadership will be further strengthened and has positioned us to promote technological progress and green transformation.”
