Hanergy Efficiency

Hanergy has announced that its Chengdu Research & Development Centre has once again broken the world record for its silicon heterojunction (SHJ) technology. The record-setting 25.11percent conversion efficiency (surface area 244.45 cm²), has been acknowledged by the Institute for Solar Energy Research in Hamelin (ISFH), with the German testing body certifying that the company has surpassed its own previous 6-inch silicon cell world record of 24.85 percent.

Hanergy’s record-breaking SHJ solar technology utilises low-cost ITO transparent conductive films and easy-to-purchase screen-printed electrodes, reducing the cost of mass production and allowing greater freedom for market expansion. This technological breakthrough was achieved using low-cost, highly efficient, fully localised production equipment and a production process that can be directly adapted for mass production.

Combined with no light decay, no potential induced attenuation (PID) and high-temperature power output, SHJ technology is an ideal solution for ground power stations, distributed power stations, vertical installations, fishery or agricultural complementary photovoltaic power stations, green-powered building and mobile energy projects.

Xu Xiaohua, Vice President & Hetero-Junction Division CEO at Hanergy said, “Our SHJ technology is a source of great pride for everyone at Hanergy. Despite only 3 years developing SHJ technology, this recent breakthrough shows that our Hetero-Junction division continues to make great progress and that the field of SHJ holds great significance to our business in the large-scale photovoltaic ground power station and distributed rooftop markets.”

Hanergy Efficiency

Over the past 2 years, Hanergy’s SHJ solar cell conversion efficiency has achieved a continuous increase of 1percent per year. Leading to major breakthroughs in August 2018 and January & August 2019, when the company first broke the Chinese national record (24.23 percent) and then topped the world record (24.85 percent), which had been monopolised by Japan for the past 29 years.
