Trina Solar Co., Ltd. ("Trina Solar" or the "company"), a leading global PV and smart energy total solution provider, has achieved an efficiency of 24.5% with its proprietary industrial larger-area 210mm×210mm high-efficiency PERC solar cell. The result was achieved by the company's State Key Laboratory of PV Science and Technology, and was independently confirmed by the National Institute of Metrology, China. This sets a new record for 210mm p-type monocrystalline silicon PERC cells. It is the 24th time that Trina Solar achieves a new world record, manifesting the company’s long-standing technology leadership.
Trina Solar developed advanced technologies including multi-layer anti-reflection, ultra-fine metallization fingers, and super multi busbar (MBB) to realize the champion efficiency of 24.5% for larger-area 210mm high-efficiency PERC cells.
“We are proud to announce the latest achievements developed by our technical team,” said Dr. Yifeng Chen, Head of High Efficiency Cell and Module R&D Center at Trina Solar. “PERC is a very mature industrial technology with lowest cost. Our latest achievement indicates Trina Solar R&D team’s vigorous and innovative capabilities in mature technology. We are dedicated to making continuous R&D investment in the technology of mass production and creating higher value for our customers.”
Trina Solar has continuously focused on transferring innovative technologies to manufacturing, to turn efficiency achieved in the laboratory into speedy industrialization and consolidate technology leadership in high efficiency cell mass production, so that high efficiency and high value products become beneficial to the entire photovoltaic industry.
As the industry evolves, the industrialization of 600W+ has become a common choice. The mature technology of 210mm plus p-type has laid a solid foundation for the whole industry to enter the new era of 600W+ ultra-high efficiency. With the joint efforts by partners of the whole value chain to strengthen coordination between R&D, manufacturing and application, the industrialization of the newest efficiency of 210mm cells will be happening at a very fast pace, paving new paths of lowering cost for the PV industry.
