Trina Solar sets 23.5% IBC cell conversion efficiency record for screen printed process

Trina Solar sets 23.5% IBC cell conversion efficiency record for screen printed process

Dr. Pierre Verlinden, Vice-President and Chief Scientist of Trina Solar said, “To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time that a mono-crystalline silicon IBC solar cell with an area of 238.6 cm2 exhibits a total-area conversion efficiency of 23.5%. Interdigitated Back Contact (IBC) silicon solar cells are the most efficient silicon solar cells to date but require a complicated fabrication process. Trina Solar has been developing IBC solar cells since the establishment of its State Key Laboratory with the objective to reach record efficiencies with the lowest possible cost. From the beginning we developed a scalable technology for IBC solar cells around large-area 156mm x 156mm wafers as we believe that the wafer size is the key to manufacturing cost reduction of this efficient solar cell."
