Wuxi Suntech announced it’s breakthough in multicrystalline silicon solar cell PERC technology
Suntech, one of the world’s leading solar modules manufacturers recently announced that its highest mass production conversion efficiency of multicrystalline silicon solar cell has reached 20%. In recent years, Wuxi Suntech devotes to the technical innovation to improve the conversion efficiency of solar cells. In April 2015, its high-efficiency monocrystalline solar module “HyPro” module was launched to the market and in June 2016 the highest cell conversion efficiency has reacheded 21.3%. In the meantime, the Hydrogenation technology which was co-developed by Wuxi Suntech and Australia UNSW can decrease the LID (light induced degradation) rate of the multicrystaiiline silicon solar cells to zero.
According to the average conversion efficiency of the mass production of multicrystaiiline silicon PERC solar cells, 72 cells module will reach 330W which is 15W higher than the normal 315W module. Wuxi Suntech will keeps on high performance products developing and technology improvement to further improve the conversion efficiency of solar cells and modules.
