Speaking yesterday at PV CellTech 2018 in Penang, Malaysia, GM of PV manufacturer Jinergy, said that this year the company will focus on cost reduction. For high-cost materials, such as Ag paste, N-type wafer, and TCO target, the company has cost-reduction plans including developing a new conductive Ag paste and constantly optimizing the use of consumables, he added.

Jinergy is the first PV manufacturer to mass produce HJT solar modules in mainland China. Currently, their average cell mass production efficiency is over 23.27%. The bifacial design of the HJT modules leaves room for a 10% to 30% increase in power generation in different applications, such as concrete floor, grassland, and reflective cloth. The overall generating capacity of these modules is 44% higher than that of regular ones. The power output of HJT 72-cell bifacial modules has exceeded 400W.
