The Panasonic research and development efficiency of the world's highest solar cell
The test results of the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, Panasonic Corp. (6752 JP) solar cell-like version of the conversion efficiency of 24.7%, the highest in the world data.
The conversion efficiency of previous record holder American SunPowerCorp. ((US-SPWR)), the conversion efficiency of solar cells up to 24.2% of the time being the International Solar important journals ProgressinPhotovoltaics regarded as the highest conversion rates.
Panasonic the Cikuan solar battery template surface film allows more sunlight to penetrate, and the electrodes to convert electric power converter efficient. Panasonic intends Business this template and want to improve their own still stopped at 21.6% conversion efficiency of the solar cells in mass market.
Panasonic’s solar cell business has been profitable, but the company believes that the the next corporate environment is more difficult, in order to improve profitability, the company intends to Jiaojia Ting-product, R & D performance and better solar cells, because the price of domestic products than Other Solar Products stability.
In addition, Panasonic plans new plant in Malaysia with more parts from Japan overseas to reduce the solar cell production costs by about 20%.
The country introduced a number of policies for the photovoltaic industry, to lend a helping hand caught in “dual” quagmire of China PV. Especially the national grid free grid to allow residents roof power station into reality of distributed photovoltaic power generation projects, but also to the industry see hope. Industry experts also pointed out that the development of the photovoltaic industry, especially the popularity of distributed PV on the laws and regulations and supporting measures to supplement and improve.
In September 2012, the EU initiated anti-dumping investigation of Chinese photovoltaic cells’, involving over 20 billion U.S. dollars; November 2012, the United States Trade Arbitration Commission announced China PV impose high anti-dumping duties and countervailing duties; the end of November 2012, India has also joined the China photovoltaic anti-dumping camp. Shrinking overseas markets, overcapacity and sustained losses … in the internal and external dual crisis in 2012, the production scale PV companies has shrunk, falling market share and even news about business failures.
Finally, caught in the trough of the photovoltaic industry warmth usher in the end of last year, a series of government assistance to the signal frequency is: October 26, 2012, National Grid announced that from November 1, the installed capacity of not more than 6 MW photovoltaic power generation projects directly in the local grid companies for grid connection and network operation, power generation can be for personal use,grid tie inverter while allowing the surplus electricity to the Internet, the acquisition of surplus electricity grid full national policy. Meanwhile, Power Grid Corporation of accepting, the development of grid programs and network debugging the whole process of service completely free of charge. Brewing for so long, on other this policy. “For many years engaged in photovoltaic research Qingdao citizens Xu Pengfei proceed immediately on their own roofs built a total installed capacity of 2 kilowatts of photovoltaic power plants, and became the country’s first grid distribution residents of photovoltaic power users. From the traditional side of the electricity is converted to the power generation side, the family roof power station distributed PV power plant to become a reality. This favorable policies to stimulate the development of distributed PV power plant into the spurt period. At present, the province has accepted 14 distributed photovoltaic power generation projects; Tianjin of five photovoltaic power generation project has completed preliminary work, and another nine projects are being carried out preliminary work. Zhejiang also has successfully promoted five distributed generation projects successfully grid.
Electricity “take advantage of the better-off countries in Europe and the United States some photovoltaic residential users is the mainstream of distributed photovoltaic applications, many families use their own rooftop power plant issue, the excess and net sale form over a broad area of photovoltaic use pattern.” Province within a photovoltaic industry expert told the author, this is what he’s looking forward to the development of distributed PV.
Recently, the Ministry of Finance has announced that it will allocate 70 billion financial support to start 3157 MW of photovoltaic power generation demonstration; Ministry of Industry and start to develop a theme for the photovoltaic countryside “plan to promote large-scale photovoltaic power generation into the rural. “Twelfth Five-Year Plan” also installed photovoltaic power generation target raised to 21 million kilowatts. January 10, 2013, the National Energy Work Conference will vigorously develop distributed photovoltaic power generation this year, total new installed capacity of 10 million kilowatts of photovoltaic power generation, this figure is more than double in 2012.
PV the centralized support policies force so that the Chinese PV industry saw hope in the New Year. Industry experts said that through the development of emerging markets overseas, driven by domestic demand, the the 2013 photovoltaic industry is expected to bail out, and usher in a new development. But also the relevant laws and regulations in a timely fashion. According to the introduction, the current promulgated in 1995, the Electricity Law, which there is a power supply business area has only been in place for a power inverter supply business organizations “provisions limiting other agencies in addition to the power company may not sell electricity, which to some extent constrained future popularity of distributed PV power plant deposit. In addition, the policy of the floor remains to be more of the administrative rules and implementation of the first half of this year.
