New Solar Cell Produced with a 21% Conversion Efficiency

The Solar Industry Award 2012 for Excellence in Innovation was recently presented to the PV solar manufacturer Silevo for its market leading solar cell technology, called Triex.

The Triex technology allows the production of PV solar cells that have a very high efficiency for a much lower cost than previously possible.

Silevo won the award after it announced that its product achieved a conversion efficiency of greater than 21 percent “with its Triex solar cells at its high volume manufacturing facility—one of the highest across the solar industry.”

Zheng Xu, the founder and CEO of Silevo, graciously accepted the award and announced that “now that we’ve begun commercial production of Silevo cells with greater than 21 percent conversion efficiency, this award reflects our determination to develop and bring to market a technology that makes sustainable, widespread solar adoption viable for the energy market. Silevo’s Triex technology is the first offering that can bring significant balance of system (BOS) savings, as well as an increased energy yield.”

He stated that his company’s Triex technology is the first of its kind which combines “high-performance crystalline silicon N-type substrates, thin-film passivation layers and a unique tunneling oxide layer—all in a single solar module, that is powered by breakthrough ‘tunneling junction’ architecture.”
