  • Chinese solar panel producer LONGi introduced it has actually gotten to a performance of 26.81% for its HJT silicon solar cells on full-size silicon wafers with mass production. The record was validated by the Institute for Solar Power Research in Hamelin (ISFH).

"Improving the performance as well as lowering the LCOE (levelized expense of power) is the eternal theme of the growth of photovoltaic or pv market. Solar cell effectiveness is the sign of photovoltaic modern technology advancement. Every 0.01% enhancement in solar cell conversion efficiency needs massive efforts. Specifically, crystalline silicon solar cells represent nearly 95% of the current photovoltaic market, so the ultimate efficiency of crystalline silicon solar cells additionally shows the advancement capacity and also direction of the photovoltaic market, which is of great significance in the whole solar sector," claimed Li Zhenguo, owner and head of state of LONGi.

LONGi formerly announced a milestone of 25.47% effectiveness for these cells in March 2022.
