The record-breaking n-type mono-crystalline silicon solar cell was fabricated on a large-sized phosphorous-doped Cz Silicon substrate with a low-cost industrial IBC process, featuring conventional tube doping technologies and fully screen-printed metallization.
In July 2016, Trina Solar announced that its production lines were able to produce the same type of PERC solar cells in large volume with an average efficiency of 21.12%, which is only 1 percentage point less than the record efficiency that was achieved in 2015.
Largely as expected, Trina Solar had a slowdown in the third quarter as a result of an oversupply and increasing inventory levels of modules in the market, as well as weak demand in China following a strong first half of the year as developers rushed to place orders prior to a subsidy policy adjustment.
New world record of 19.86% aperture efficiency for its high-efficiency “Honey Plus” multicrystalline silicon solar module.
Shares of Chinese solar company, Trina Solar, are trading higher due to better than expected earnings and revenue for the second quarter of 2016.
The new partnership will focus around co-promotional campaigns, Cirque du Soleil experiences for Trina Solar’s customers and employees, and more.
