June 4 (Renewables Now) - Chinese solar manufacturer JinkoSolar Holding Co Ltd (NYSE:JKS) said on Monday it has achieved maximum conversion efficiencies of 24.38% and 24.58%, respectively, for its cheetah size cells and N-type photovoltaic (PV) cells.

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.
