While N-type, PERC, IBC and heterojunction technologies continue to capture headlines and attract hype within the PV industry, Trina has demonstrated that P-type mono can deliver impressive peak power output results. Its Honey module set a world record for a module of its type in April of this year, of 335.2W. This is an improvement on its previous record of 326.3 W. Trina announced the result today.
TÜV Rhineland has certified the record. Trina reports that the module was produced in the companys State Key Lab of PV Science and Technology. The module comprises of 60 x 156 mm x 156 mm cells.
"The fact that we have broken the world record twice within just half a year gives us confidence in the huge potential to commercialize modules with higher efficiency, said Zhiqiang Feng, the Director of Trinas State Key Laboratory, in a statement announcing the result. Through our advanced State Key Lab of PV Science and Technology Trina Solar is delivering on its commitment to be the innovation leader in the industry."
