Trina Solar’s 210 PERC solar cell has achieved 23.56% efficiency, a record for 210 P-type monocrystalline silicon PERC cells, the company said this week.

The efficiency rating was independently confirmed by the National Center of Supervision and Inspection on Solar Photovoltaic Product Quality.

“We are proud to announce the latest achievements developed by our technical team, to realize the batch efficiency over 23.5% for larger-area 210mm high-efficiency PERC cells in production,” said Dr. Yifeng Chen, head of the high effiency cell and module R&D center at Trina Solar. “This demonstrated that 210 cells can achieve very high efficiency in reality. Our technical team will continue to focus on transfer innovative technologies to manufacturing to consolidate our technology leadership in high efficiency cells mass production.”

The Chinese company announced in June that its Vertex high-efficiency p-type monocrystalline silicon module reached a record aperture module efficacy of 23.03%.
