45% Efficient Photovoltic Cells


45% Efficiency in new type Solar Cells
1 Megawatt Photovoltaic Installations!!!

New concentrating photovoltaic (CPV) modules with a concentration rate of 500 times have been developed by a research team at The Chinese Institute of Nuclear Energy Research.

The Chinese Institute of Nuclear Energy Research has also constructed a high-efficiency, high-precision sunlight tracking module. The CPV module along with the tracking module can provide a much higher power generation efficiency.

The Chinese intend to establish a system for one-megawatt CPV power generators in 2008.
The institute is also working on a project to raise the conversion efficiency of solar cells to 45% .
