Solar module manufacturer JinkoSolar announced that its N-type TOPCon monocrystalline silicon solar cell achieved efficiency of 24.2 percent.
Photovoltaic and Wind Power Systems Quality Test Center at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) conducted the testing.
The N-Type cell features JinkoSolar’s HOT cell design based on tunnel oxide passivating contact technology. JinkoSolar’s N-type wafer, doping technology, and fine-line printing technology allow the company to achieve 24.2 percent cell efficiency across its product chain
The world PV module power record of 387.6W for N-type half-cell module (60P) was fabricated using JinkoSolar’s HOT cell design.
N-type HOT technology is opening a new path towards developing high efficiency industrial products for JinkoSolar. N-type HOT technology demonstrates the competitiveness of JinkoSolar products when compared to current HIT and IBC technologies.
JinkoSoalr is working with institutions on their advanced technologies including the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore’s mono-poly technology, University of New South Wales’ hydrogenation technology and Australian National University’s passivating contact technology.
