JA Solar P-Type Mono-Si Solar Cells Surpass 20% Conversion Efficiency
JA Solar (NASDAQ: JASO) today announced that its p-type mono-crystalline silicon ("mono-Si") solar 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.
"This latest above 20% conversion efficiency of solar cells using p-type mono-Si wafers is of great importance in terms of cost-effectively manufacturing high-performance solar cells and modules," said Mr. Yong Liu, CTO of JA Solar. "It is also a further boost to our efforts to meet the growing demand for high-performance solar power products."
