Chinese solar manufacturer JinkoSolar Holding Co Ltd (NYSE:JKS) said on Friday it has set a new world record by achieving conversion efficiency of 23.95% on a p-type monocrystalline (mono c-Si) solar cell.
The result was recorded during certification testing by the Photovoltaic and Wind Power Systems Quality Test Center at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).
The Chinese company's previous record for P-type solar cells was 23.45%. The continued gain in efficiency is due to the further optimisation of selective emitter formation, silicon oxide passivation and rear side passivation. JinkoSolar said the use of P-type mono wafer technology helped a lot.
“We will continue to allocate resources towards innovating new and high efficiency solar technologies and their application to the market as we continue to provide the most reliable and highest efficiency products,” said CEO Kangping Chen.
