Amonix has announced a module efficiency rating of 34.2%, confirmed by the NREL.
Amonix has announced a module efficiency rating of 34.2%, confirmed by the NREL.
  • NREL confirmed the module efficiency of 34.2%.
  • This is the highest efficiency ever reported under real-world, operating conditions for a solar PV module.

In May of this year, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) confirmed an outdoor operating efficiency rating of 33.5% for an Amonix module, breaking the previous 30.3% record also held by Amonix. Over several days of on-sun testing conducted by NREL, the module efficiency peaked at 34.2%. This is the highest efficiency ever reported under real-world, operating conditions for a solar PV module.

“This record-breaking module efficiency rating is now internationally recognized as the gold standard in renowned publications as well as the most recent Solar Cell Efficiency tables publication, Version 40, released in August. Sarah Kurtz of NREL also cites this highest efficiency rating in her 2012 annual “state of the CPV industry” publication, “Opportunities and Challenges for Development of a Mature Concentrating Photovoltaic Power Industry.”
