While module efficiencies improved in general both for incumbent PERC and advanced cell technologies TOPCon and HJT, one development stood out. Over the course of 2022, after many years, Maxeon got true competition when it comes to the highest module efficiency. While the SunPower spin-off was able to increase its record commercial module efficiency by 0.1% from 22.7% to 22.8%, LONGi from China introduced a product reaching the same efficiency, Chunduri pointed out.
The TaiyangNews Solar Module Innovations Conference took place on 31 January 2023 and saw world leading vertically integrated PV panel manufacturers discuss innovations that are taking place in solar module technology.
