Trina Solar’s State Key Laboratory of PV Science and Technology, (SKL PVST), announced on July 5 that its industrial-sized 210x210mm high efficiency PERC solar cells, have achieved an efficiency of 24.5%. This was independently verified by China’s National Institute of Metrology. This new record is set for the mass production of 210 monocrystalline silicon PERC cells. Trina Solar has set a new world record for 210 p-type monocrystalline silicon PERC cells in mass production 24 times. This is a testament to the company’s technology leadership.
Trina Solar has developed advanced technologies such as multi-layer antireflection film and ultra-fine metallization fingers to achieve the best efficiency of 24.5% for large-area 210mm high efficiency PERC cells in mass-production.
“We are proud of the latest achievements by our technical staff,” stated Dr. Yifeng Chen (head of high efficiency module and cell R&D center in Trina Solar). “PERC is a mature industrial technology at a lower price. Trina Solar R&D team has demonstrated its innovative and energetic capabilities in mature technology in mass-production. This is our latest achievement. We are committed to continuous R&D investments in mass production technology, and creating greater value for our customers.”
Trina Solar is committed to transferring new technologies to manufacturing. This allows efficiency gained in the laboratory to be quickly industrialized and consolidates technology leadership in high-efficiency cells mass production.
The industrialization of 600W+ is becoming a more common option as the industry develops. The industry has a solid foundation to move into the new era with 600W+ ultra-high efficiency. The industrialization of the latest efficiency of 210 will take place at a rapid pace thanks to the efforts of all the value chain partners. This will allow PV industry to lower costs by lowering their cost.
