Trina Solar sets new world record of production 210 PERC cell with efficiency reaching 23.56%

Trina Solar Co., Ltd. ("Trina Solar" or the "Company"), a leading global PV and smart energy total solution provider, and its State Key Laboratory of PV Science and Technology (SKL PVST) announced that its proprietary industrial large-area 210mm×210mm high-efficiency PERC solar cell in mass production has achieved the efficiency of 23.56%, setting a new record for 210 P-type monocrystalline silicon PERC cells. This has been independently confirmed by the third party National Center of Supervision and Inspection on Solar Photovoltaic Product Quality (CPVT).

The advanced 210 PERC cells were fabricated in the mass production lines by the R&D group with delicate device and process optimization, using industrial feasible manufacturing equipments and materials.

Dr. Yifeng Chen, head of high efficiency cell and module R&D center at Trina Solar, said, "We are proud to announce the latest achievements developed by our technical team, to realize the batch efficiency over 23.5% for large-area 210mm high-efficiency PERC cells in production. This demonstrates that 210 cells can achieve very high efficiency in reality. Our technical team will continue to focus on transferring innovative technologies to manufacturing to consolidate our technology leadership in high efficiency cell mass production."

At the end of June 2021, the SKL announced that its Vertex high-efficiency p-type monocrystalline silicon module has achieved a record aperture module efficiency of 23.03%, based on 66 pcs of 210mm x 210mm high-efficiency PERC cells, which has been independently confirmed by both TÜV Rheinland and TÜV Nord with identical efficiency result.
