Paper Abstract

In China, the Research and Development (R&D) of solar cell and photovoltaic (PV) system were started in 1958. At the beginning of 1970’s, c-Si (crystal silicon) solar cells with efficiency about 13%(AM0) had been made out and then successfully used in the Chinese satellite launched in 1971. After more than 40 years’ effort, now about 40 institutes, universities and companies are engaging in the PV works. Until the end of 2003, about 12 solar cell plants with certain scale had been established. The annual production capacity of solar cells/modules was about 12 MW and the total installed capacity of PV system was about 50MW. The highest efficiency of 20.4% for c-Si solar cell ever reported.
