JinkoSolar Holding has achieved a major technical breakthrough for its 182 mm high-efficiency N-type monocrystalline silicon solar cell.

JinkoSolar has set a new world record with the maximum solar conversion efficiency of 25.7 percent for its large-size monocrystalline silicon TOPCon solar cell. This result has been independently confirmed by the National Institute of Metrology, China (NIM).

The record-breaking monocrystalline silicon solar cell was fabricated on a high quality CZ mono-Si substrate. High temperature gettering, advanced diffusion, semi-transparent metallization, JinkoSolar’s self-developed HOT technologies, and a series of material upgrades were integrated into the cell process to set this new world record for maximum conversion efficiency of 25.7 percent, compared with the record set last October reaching 25.4 percent .

“It is a major breakthrough for our N-type TOPCon cell technology and an important milestone in our development of innovative products and solutions. We are constantly investing in technology upgrades to achieve cost-effective mass production, and increase the competitiveness of our N-type products in the market,” Jin Hao, CTO of Jinko Solar said.
