JinkoSolar Holding Co. Ltd. has announced that the maximum conversion efficiency of its bifacial solar modules reached 22.49%, breaking the previous world record and setting a new industry standard for efficiency of mass-produced solar cells. These results were verified during testing conducted by TÜV Rheinland, an independent provider of technical services for testing, inspection, certification, consultation and training.
JinkoSolar was able to significantly improve efficiency for its mass-produced modules by applying newly developed ARC and advanced metallisation technologies and proven proprietary technologies to high-efficient cell design. New Tiling Ribbon (TR) technology was also incorporated into the cell design which eliminates any inter-cell gap, ensuring high-efficiency and high-reliability, while significantly improving the module's appearance. The high-efficiency modules also help reduce the levelised cost of electricity (LCOE) as the industry approaches grid parity globally.
