JinkoSolar stated the order was "the largest-ever purchase by the CNPC", with the modules set up to be supplied throughout 2022 to sustain the organisation's solar development pipeline in China.

N-type TOPCon is set to end up being the world's second most common PV cell modern technology after PERC, catching around 15% of the world market in 2022, according to JinkoSolar. This is because N-type TOPCon cells can be manufactured rapidly and inexpensively, "supplying a lower-cost option to replace PERC as the next mainstream solution", JinkoSolar stated.

JinkoSolar is forecasting that greater than 25% of its module deliveries this year will certainly be attributable to its n-type TOPCon module array.

Talking To PV Tech in December 2021, JinkoSolar vice president Dany Qian disclosed that the 'Solar Module Super Organization' (SMSL) supplier anticipates to ship around 10GW of n-type TOPCon modules in 2022.

JinkoSolar claimed that N-type technology has a benefit due to its capability to "soak up more sunshine for exchanging electricity and a relatively affordable of production".

Belief in the innovation has seen JinkoSolar introduce investments in new cell manufacturing facilities in Anhui and Zhejiang districts in China to broaden its N-type solar production capacity to 16GW by the end of 2022.

And, on the very first day of this year, JinkoSolar introduced the first 10MW order for its brand-new Tiger Neo 72HC N-type TOPCon modules from one of the largest EPCs in Vietnam.

Jinko formally introduced its n-type TOPCon module series, referred to as Tiger Neo, in November 2021. The module has an optimal power result of 620W and an automation conversion efficiency of 22.3%.
