Silevo’s Triex™ Technology awarded the solar industry award for excellence in Innovation
Wednesday, 03 October 2012 06:23
The Solar Industry Awards recognize the PV value chain and those people, products and services that are developing innovative manufacturing and product approaches that demonstrate technological development towards grid parity while reducing overall cost. The award win comes on the heels of Silevo’s announcement that it has achieved greater than 21 percent conversion efficiency with its Triex solar cells at its high volume manufacturing facility—one of the highest across the solar industry.
“Silevo is honored to be presented with The Solar Industry Award for our advancements with Triex technology,” said Zheng Xu, founder and CEO of Silevo. “Now that we’ve begun commercial production of Silevo cells with greater than 21 percent conversion efficiency, this award reflects our determination to develop and bring to market a technology that makes sustainable, widespread solar adoption viable for the energy market. Silevo’s Triex technology is the first offering that can bring significant balance of system (BOS) savings, as well as an increased energy yield.”
Silevo’s proprietary Triex technology evolves silicon-based PV as the first hybrid solar solution to combine high-performance crystalline silicon N-type substrates, thin-film passivation layers and a unique tunneling oxide layer—all in a single solar module. Powered by breakthrough “tunneling junction” architecture, these three materials together enable the Triex module to deliver high efficiency, competitive module costs and optimal energy harvest.
“The Solar Industry Awards continue to reward and recognize the people, process and products that make up the global PV and solar industry,” said David Ridsdale, editor in chief of Solar International. “Now in their fourth year, the awards are voted for by the industry ensuring these awards are decided by the industry. Silevo’s Triex technology exhibits the complexity and comprehensiveness of the PV market and was selected as a winner due to the confidence of the awards selection panel in recognition of the perceived value Silevo’s technology can add to the industry.”
Winners of The Solar Industry Awards were honored in Frankfurt, Germany at the Jumeirah Hotel on September 24, 2012.
