JA Solar Developing Next Generation Solar Products using Silicon Ink Technology from Innovalight

Shanghai | Posted on September 16th, 2009

Innovalight, Inc., a privately held firm based in Sunnyvale, Calif. recently announced that it has demonstrated a record 18 percent conversion efficiency using silicon ink technology and conventional silicon wafers. Results were independently certified by two of the world's recognized solar cell testing centers, the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), and The Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE) in Germany.

JA Solar is currently developing silicon ink-based high efficiency solar cells at its R&D pilot line in Yangzhou, China with plans for initial commercialization in 2010.

"Innovalight's silicon ink in conjunction with JA Solar's leadership in high volume solar cell manufacturing with demonstrated yield, conversion efficiency, and low production costs, provides a very promising solution to enhance the conversion efficiency of solar cells utilizing our existing solar cell manufacturing lines," said Qingtang Jiang, JA Solar's chief technology officer. "JA Solar will continue to invest in new technologies to stay at the forefront of the solar sector," he added.

"We are delighted to be working with a solar industry visionary like JA Solar," said Conrad Burke, chief executive officer at Innovalight. "JA Solar's leadership in manufacturing and Innovalight's silicon ink technology offer a very powerful platform for producing solar cells," he said.
