Wuxi Utmost Light Technology Co Ltd (UtmoLight), announced on Friday that it has reached a new world record of 20.5% power conversion efficiency for its mini-module with a designated area of 63.98 cm2. The result was certified by the internationally recognised test center - Japan Electrical Safety & Environment Technology Laboratories (JET). Such an efficiency currently is the highest record generated by perovskite solar modules in the world, and is already comparable to the efficiency of mainstream crystalline silicon products. This indicates that China has mastered the core technology in the field of perovskite solar modules and it is only a matter of time before the country achieving mass production.
Moreover, the Jiangsu-province based UtmoLight is reportedly planning to build production lines for manufacturing large-area perovskite solar modules to accelerate the commercialization of the perovskite photovoltaic technology.
Even though the efficiency of perovskite solar cells is farily close to that of the crystalline silicon solar cells, its efficiency drops rapidly as the area enlarges, due to the difficulty of preparing high-quality perovskite films over large areas by using conventional methods. UtmoLight has mastered a large-area perovskite preparation technology which enables large-area module production without sacrificing high conversion efficiency . The perovskite solar module efficiency exceeding 20% is a big leap forward for perovskite solar technology, symbolising the commencement of a new photovoltaic era in which perovskite will be momentous.
UtmoLight, which led the breakthrough of perovskite solar module efficiency, is a Chinese company focusing on the industrial development of perovskite technology. It is invested by the country’s well-known Great Wall Holding Group and has gathered top experts across the world. As a competitive player in its filed, UtmoLight adheres to the vision of building a world-leading green energy company, and is committed to building a respectful resource-saving and environment-friendly enterprise. Built upon the development of perovskite technology and its industrial application, UtmoLight is advocative to generate efficient, economical and environmentally friendly green energy via active research and development efforts, to empower the industry advancement and the world’s sustainable development.
