N-type monocrystalline silicon solar cell achieves new record

JinkoSolar’s high-efficiency N-type monocrystalline silicon solar cell sets a new world record with the highest conversion efficiency of 25.4%.

As one of the largest and most innovative solar module manufacturers in the world, JinkoSolar this month, announced that it has achieved a major technical breakthrough on its N-type monocrystalline silicon solar cell.

The solar manufacturer has set a new world record for the fourth time in a year with the maximum solar conversion efficiency of 25.4% for its large-size passivating contact solar cell.

This result has been independently confirmed by the Japan Electrical Safety and Environment Technology Laboratories (JET).

The previous conversion efficiency of the N-type monocrystalline silicon solar cell reached 23.53% in July, which outperformed the previous record of 23.01%, both set by JinkoSolar, in January 2021.

Continued R&D on N-type monocrystalline silicon solar cell is important to market growth

The record-breaking monocrystalline silicon solar cell was fabricated on a high-quality CZ mono-Si substrate.

Ultrafine line metallisation, advanced diffusion, low parasitic absorption material, JinkoSolar’s self-developed HOT technologies, and a series of material upgrade were integrated into the cell process to set this new world record for maximum conversion efficiency of 25.4%.

Dr Hao Jin, Chief Technology Officer of JinkoSolar, commented: “We are very proud to play a vital role in raising industry standards and to set a fourth world record within a year with our groundbreaking N-type solar cell.

“We will continue to provide customers with the most LCOE-competitive products they need for large scale projects, and at the same time, this is a big milestone in our R&D capabilities to make clean energy affordable and sustainable for everyone.”

Dr Jin assured that the company will continue to lead with innovative products and solutions for its global customers who depend on JinkoSolar for its breakthrough technology and reliable supply chain.
