This shift responds to changing industry trends and Aiko Energy’s long-term goals. By focusing on TOPCon technology, they aim to meet the rising demand for n-type high-efficiency solar cells.

The project starts in April 2024, with production expected to begin by late 2024.

In a statement, Aiko Energy highlighted the limitations of current p-type PERC cell production efficiency, noting that it has nearly reached its peak and is insufficient to meet the industry’s cost reduction and efficiency enhancement requirements.

In contrast, n-type cells offer several advantages, including higher conversion efficiency, lower light-induced degradation, lower temperature coefficient, higher bifaciality, and increased power generation capacity.

As industry players collectively advocate for n-type cells to replace p-type cells as the mainstream technology of the next generation, Aiko Energy is strategically positioning itself to lead this transition.
