The Chinese Academy of Sciences undertook the testing of the particular cells in March, JinkoSolar said in a statement, claiming the efficiencies are the highest in the world.
JinkoSolar also said its 72 version monocrystalline module has reached peak capacity of 469.3 W during tests conducted by German safety standard authority TUeV Rheinland. The tests were carried out last month.
Hao Jin, JinkoSolar’s research and development (R&D) vice president, noted that the company has tied up with advanced R&D centres globally to create a joint research platform for solar products. In January, it announced reaching a record high efficiency of 24.2% for a large-area N-type TOPCon monocrystalline silicon solar cell.
