JinkoSolar P-type Multi-crystalline Silicon Solar Cells Achieve New World Record in Conversion Efficiency Again



SHANGHAI, Oct. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (NYSE: JKS) (the "Company," or "JinkoSolar"), a global leader in the solar PV industry, today announced that its practical sized (245.83cm2) P-type multi-crystalline silicon solar cells reached the world's highest conversion efficiency of 22.04%. It is the second time that JinkoSolar has broken this world record since October 2016.

JinkoSolar's record-breaking multi-crystalline silicon solar cell was manufactured on a high quality boron doped mc-Si substrate. Advanced texturing, passivation and anti-LID technologies were integrated into the passivated emitter rear contact (PERC) structure to achieve the new 22.04% world record. The new world record was independently confirmed by Fraunhofer ISE Germany and broke JinkoSolar's previous record of 21.63% one year ago.

"This is the first time that conversion efficiency for P-type mc-Si PERC cells exceeded the 22% efficiency mark which I believe will serve as a guideline developing higher efficiency products," commented by Dr. Jin Hao, Vice President of JinkoSolar. "The entire manufacturing chain is comprised of low-cost industrial processes and will be gradually transferred into mass production. Leveraging our high-efficiency solar cells, we will continue to develop advanced manufacturing techniques to reduce the cost of PV products."
