The upside of TOPCon: high efficiency, low degradation in mass production
With the potential for high efficiency and reduced degradation, the production of n-type solar cells is expanding. Particularly encouraging has been the progress made with n-type tunnel oxide passivated contact (TOPCon) – with efficiencies rivalling or even exceeding heterojunction, and production techniques to minimize LeTID having been put in place.
Chinese manufacturer Jinko Solar is betting big on n-type TOPCon, looking to transition its high efficiency lines from the dominant p-type to n-type. In fact, Jinko plans to massively increase its shipments of n-type products to the Australian market.
Australia’s renowned appetite for new technology, alongside its aggressive utility-scale segment, makes the country a particularly interesting one for manufacturers like Jinko, looking to prove their technological developments at scale. So, what promise does n-type TOPCon hold? And why is it particularly useful in Australia’s hot and increasingly humid climate?
In this pv magazine Webinar we’ll be having a closer look at n-type PV cell technology, its benefits as well as challenges. We’ll be joined by Jinko’s Technical Service Manager Australia, Dan Su, alongside Aaron Bonanno, Principal Engineer at GSES and Dr Mark Griffith, Power Generation Practice Leader at Aurecon, who will speak to working with n-type TOPCon modules and their application in both the Australian utility-scale and commercial & industrial segments.
