February 28 (Renewables Now) -  Longi Solar Technology, a unit of Chinese monocrystalline solar products maker Longi Green Energy Technology Co Ltd (SHA:601012), said on Tuesday it has set a new global record for monocrystalline PERC cell efficiency of 23.6%.

The accomplishment has been verified by China's National Center of Supervision and Inspection on Solar Photovoltaic Product Quality (CPVT). It was announced only a few months after the company achieved a conversion efficiency of 22.71% with a monocrystalline PERC cell and a record-high efficiency of 23.26% for a mass-produced PERC cell.

“Since October 2017, Longi Solar has broken the world record three times in terms of conversion efficiency of monocrystalline solar cells," said Li Hua, vice president of research and development at Longi Solar. "

Following the latest achievement, the Chinese manufacturer intends to proceed with investment in monocrystalline PERC cell technology and to “quickly” expand its production capacity in response to growing demand, said Longi Solar’s president Li Wenxue.
