Photovoltaic cells manufacturer Hanwha Q CELLS announced today that it has achieved a world-record-breaking multicrystalline solar module efficiency. The independent Fraunhofer ISE CalLab confirmed the record module efficiency rating of 19.5% in relation to the aperture area and a power output of 301 watts. The efficiency record has been published in the widely referenced Efficiency Tables of the renowned scientific journal “Progress in Photovoltaics: Research and Applications” in June 2016.
The Turkish branch of globally leading photovoltaics provider Hanwha Q CELLS, has finished construction and grid connection of an 8.3 MW solar power plant in Burdur, Turkey. The system is the first part of a project totaling 18.3 megawatts (“MW”).
Korean manufacturer Hanwha Q CELLS and its UK development partner Golden Square Energy (GSE) have put two solar power plants in operation near Cambridge in the United Kingdom.
