JA Solar p-type mono-silicon PV cells surpass 20 % conversion efficiency (SolarServer)

JA Solar Holdings Co., Ltd. (Shanghai, China) on September 26th , 2014 announced that its p-type mono-crystalline silicon ("mono-Si") solar photovoltaic (PV) cells, a new family of high-performance solar cells dubbed "PERCIUM," have surpassed 20% conversion efficiency. The newly achieved conversion efficiency, which has been independently confirmed and certified by the Fraunhofer ISE's photovoltaic calibration laboratory (CalLab) in Freiburg, Germany, sets an industry-leading level for industrial size (156x156 mm2 ) solar cells using p-type mono-Si wafers. New solar cell technology to be introduced into mass production within the next six months The breakthrough follows JA Solar's recent announcement of the industry-leading efficiency of its multi-crystalline silicon ("multi-Si") solar cells. JA Solar plans to introduce the new solar cell technology into mass production wi...
