Chinese solar manufacturer LONGi Solar Technology Co., Ltd. (“LONGi Solar”) held a press conference in Japan on February 28, 2018, at which the company announced that it had achieved a record 23.6% conversion efficiency with its monocrystalline passivated emitter rear contact (PERC) solar cells, as certified by China’s National Center of Supervision and Inspection on Solar Photovoltaic Product Quality (CPVT).
The solar cell manufacturer not only broke its own record, but continues to be the world’s leading producer of monocrystalline PERC solar cells with the highest efficiency.
Over the past two years, monocrystalline PERC technology, with its distinct advantages in terms of performance and cost, has been increasingly favored and recognized across the solar cell industry, a sector that has higher requirements for efficiency as a result of the push among solar power producers to reduce the cost per kilowatt hour of solar power and achieve grid parity. As a result, an increasing number of solar cell manufacturers have begun to produce monocrystalline PERC cells.
“LONGi Solar has been focusing on the R&D of monocrystalline solar cells and modules as part of its drive to make breakthroughs in monocrystalline technology. Since October 2017, LONGi Solar has broken the world record three times in terms of conversion efficiency of monocrystalline solar cells,” said Dr. Li Hua, vice president of research and development at LONGi Solar. ”
The company achieved a new world record of 23.6% in efficiency at the beginning of 2018, after having announced on October 27, 2017 that it had reached a world record of 23.26%, exceeding the highest efficiency that industry analysts believe PERC cells can achieve. This achievement is another testament to LONGi Solar’s leading technology in monocrystalline cells.”
