Multi-Si products have been dominating in volumes and regions over mono-Si for the past 20 years, due to the advantages in cost effectiveness, initial light-induced degradation, carbon footprint and LCOE. However, this market dominance has been facing increasing challenges from mono-Si in the past years.
In this presentation, the technology evolution of CSI’s multi-Si products will be introduced. The high efficiency multi-Si cells and modules, based on CSI’s proven multi-PERC technology, have shown industry leading cell efficiency, module wattage and additional characteristics. Along with the potential approaches to achieve mono performance at multi cost, the high efficiency multi-Si products will keep the LCOE competence for years to come.
