JinkoSolar Holding Co Ltd announced that the Company has signed an MOU with Shanghai Institute of Space Power-Sources to co-develop high efficiency solar cell technology for both space and terrestrial applications. Innovators and engineers from both sides will co-develop space-based photovoltaic cells with a more efficient, low-cost, robust silicon wafer as the supporting bottom substrate and bottom cell.

This high-efficiency solar technology takes advantage of inexpensive silicon wafers. It is easy to manufacture at large scale and can achieve a higher conversion rate. It has a more robust and rugged design, much lower degradation required for next-generation solar cells in space. Due to its unprecedented efficiencies, it could also be used in other applications like auxiliary power units in vehicles, solar roof tiles, power plants, and smart grid systems. This is an early-stage technology requiring additional development. This partnership between two elite solar companies will fuel much needed development.
