On April 24 last year, the power of Longi’s 60-cell monocrystalline half-cut PERC module exceeded 360W, setting the world record of the highest power of 60-cellPERC half-cut module. In January this year, the positive conversion efficiency of Longi monocrystalline PERC cells reached 24.06 percent, breaking through the industry's previously theoretical PERC cell efficiency limit of 24 percent.
“Longi monocrystalline half cell module combines monocrystalline PERC cell technology and bifacial half cell module construction to effectively reduce package loss and increase average output by 5-10W” said Dr. Lv Jun, Vice President of Longi Solar. “Half cell has obvious advantages in power generation under weak light and shadow conditions and excellent heat spot resistance. This new record in module power is another step in our innovative breakthrough and journey.”
Longi Solar has invested $183.58million in R&D in 2018, in which it employs a team about 548 staff. The company has registered 526 patents and its products and technology are leaders in the industry.
The transformation towards clean and low carbon energy is accelerating globally and with it, the growth of photovoltaics is increasing rapidly. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), the total global installed capacity of photovoltaic is expected to reach 1721 GW by 2030, and further increase to 4670 GW by 2050. Innovations in photovoltaic technology will be at the forefront and high efficiency and high quality photovoltaic products are the ‘main force’ to promote energy change.
