Although the lawsuit will be continued, the final outcome and prolonged effects are still unknown. This judicial decision will be sure to accelerate the speed of photovoltaic technology innovation, which means the transfer of mainstream technology from p-type to n-type, as technically PERC cells and modules are facing difficulties to meet the increasing demand for higher efficiencies.
N-Type TOPCon is considered as the next dominating technology after PERC, is one of the candidate direction of PERC upgrading. N-TOPCon is not only compatible with current production lines, the cost is also lowered down to be flat with PERC, efficiency already reaches 24% at production level, and this figure still has great potential. There are also many unique performance advantages because of better material properties:
