Chinese solar panel manufacturer LONGi announced that the efficiency of HJT silicon solar cells on full-size silicon wafers has reached 26.81% through mass production. This record was confirmed by the Institute for Solar Energy (ISFH) in Hamelin.
“Improving efficiency and reducing LCOE (Levelized Cost of Energy) is an eternal theme in the development of the photovoltaic industry. The efficiency of solar cells is the indicator of innovation in photovoltaic technology. Every 0.01% improvement in solar cell conversion efficiency requires a lot of effort, especially since crystalline silicon solar cells account for nearly 95% of the current photovoltaic market. Ultimate efficiency also indicates the potential and direction of the development of the photovoltaic industry, which is of great importance to the entire photovoltaic industry.Li Zhenguo, founder and president of LONGi, said: says.
LONGi previously announced a milestone of 25.47% efficiency for these cells. March 2022.
