Wuxi Suntech has achieved a new round of efficiency breakthroughs for its silicon solar cells. The Hypro modules that use these solar cells, together with Sunways inverters, will contribute significantly to the optimized and integrated EPC solar solutions that SFCE is rolling out around the world.
Tested by the National Center of Supervision and Inspection on Solar Photovoltaic Products Quality, the conversion efficiencies of these monocrystalline and polycrystalline solar cells have reached yields as high as 20.82% and 19.11% respectively.
These advances come only two months after Suntech first introduced its high-efficiency HyPro monocrystalline silicon cells, which at the time had a 20.5% efficiency yield.
Suntech’s HyPro is available in 60 cell and 72 cell modules with 290W and 330W output power respectively, which represent an average of 20W power increase, or 7.4% and 6.5% respectively, above the industry standards, thus marking Suntech’s HyPro module as one of the most superior panels in the solar market.
As part of the SFCE group, Suntech and other subsidiaries are in the unique position to achieve even greater output in electricity generation through leveraging technological synergies.
Coupling Suntech’s new high-efficiency modules with Sunways’s inverters delivers 3% more electricity generation. Moreover, SFCE’s EPC solutions deliver additional output yields of over 20% when used alongside Sunways’ Smart Linkage Tracker, and an additional 3% from the use of meteocontrol’s O&M systems.
Through the full integration and synergy of SFCE’s comprehensive solar technologies spanning the entire solar value chain, the group can increase EPC customers’ investment returns by 3%.
