ReneSola Ltd., a manufacturer of solar wafers and provider of solar modules, has developed a new multicrystalline wafer, the Virtus Wafer.
The Virtus Wafer, which has been endorsed by several global solar cell manufacturers, achieves an average cell conversion efficiency rate of 17.5%, according to the company. This figure is more than 1% higher than the industry-standard cell conversion efficiency rate for cells using multicrystalline wafers.
ReneSola intends to commence pilot production of the Virtus Wafer in the first half of this year.
