Abstract:
JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (NYSE:JKS) ("JinkoSolar"), a fast-growing vertically integrated solar product manufacturer with low-cost operations based in China, announced today that it has entered into a commercial agreement with Innovalight, Inc. ("Innovalight"), a privately-held company that manufactures proprietary silicon ink and licenses proprietary processing technology to solar cell manufacturing companies.

JinkoSolar Partners with Innovalight to Increase Solar Cell Efficiency with Silicon Ink

Shanghai | Posted on December 16th, 2010

Under the terms of the agreement, JinkoSolar will purchase silicon ink from Innovalight and license Innovalight's processing technology to produce solar cells with higher conversion efficiencies.

Innovalight's proprietary nanotechnology-based silicon ink and processing platform provide a simple upgrade to solar cell manufacturing production lines that boosts the performance of solar cells and lowers production costs. With Innovalight technology, JinkoSolar expects to produce monocrystalline solar cells with conversion efficiencies greater than 18.6% in the first half of 2011.

Guoxiao Yao, Chief Technology Officer and Vice President at JinkoSolar, commented, "Innovalight's silicon ink provides a unique, cost-effective solution that is able to significantly improve the efficiency of our solar cells with a simple one-step upgrade to our existing cell production lines. Our higher efficiency solar cells will offer a better return on investment for system integrators and further solidify our position as a leading solar cell and module manufacturer. We remain committed to investing in technologies that will enhance our solar products and we look forward to implementing Innovalight's proprietary processing technology in a short time."

"JinkoSolar's strong brand presence across a broad geographic network makes the company an important customer for us," added Conrad Burke, Chief Executive Officer at Innovalight. "Our silicon ink technology, in combination with JinkoSolar's leading vertically integrated manufacturing platform, will offer an attractive and highly powerful solar product. We look forward to working with JinkoSolar as we partner to bring a progressive technology and improved solar product to the market."
