Canadian Solar Set A World Record Of 22.28% Multi-Crystalline Cell Conversion Efficiency

Canadian Solar Inc., one of the world's largest solar power companies, today announced that the Company has set a world record of 22.28% conversion efficiency for its p-type multi-crystalline P5 cell.

The record high P5 cell efficiency was tested and certified by Fraunhofer ISE of Germany in April 2019.

Canadian Solar has been developing its P5 technology and products for the past few years. The 22.28% record cell was fabricated by utilizing 157mmx157mm P5 multi-crystalline wafers and other production-ready technologies such as selective emitter, silicon oxide passivation, multi-layer anti-reflection coating, aluminum oxide backside passivation, and advanced metallization. In addition, the MCCE black silicon technology, originally developed by Canadian Solar, was also employed.

Dr. Shawn Qu, chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar Inc. said, "We are pleased to see Canadian Solar P5 technology set a new world record. This shows that our multi-crystalline technology can achieve higher efficiencies while still enjoy the cost advantage. We will continue to expand our technology pipeline and provide our customers with the most LCOE-competitive products."
