JinkoSolar’s “Cheetah” line of new solar cells and modules have reached a new high efficiency rating, along with Jinko’s n-type cells. During testing conducted by the Chinese Academy of Sciences in March 2019, China’s authoritative national academy for the natural sciences, the Cheetah cells reached 24.38% efficiency while the n-type cells reached 24.58%.
In addition, JinkoSolar’s 72-cell Cheetah module (with 158.75 mm² cells) was tested by TÜV Rheinland in May 2019 and reached 469.3 W.
The company reached 24.2% efficiency with its new large-area n-type TOPcon solar cells in January.
JinkoSolar’s production chain, including R&D teams from silicon wafers, solar cells and solar modules, all made significant technological breakthroughs which were key to the extremely high solar cell efficiency and module power output. Several advanced technologies have been implemented, including: silicon wafer growth with extremely low oxygen and defect concentration, “HOT” solar cell technology, low-loss cell connection technology and in-module light harvesting technology.
“With our commitment to revolutionize the industry using technological innovation, JinkoSolar has been continuously breaking world records for the efficiency of solar cells and modules,” commented Dr. Hao Jin, JinkoSolar R&D VP. “To complement our efforts in continuously upgrading product technology and create more value for our global customers, JinkoSolar has established a joint research platform with many advanced R&D institutions across the globe.”
