The broader document paints a wonderful picture of the different potential technology pathways of PERC solar cells. Seems like PERC based solar cells will hit almost 50% of global sales this year, and it might hold onto its position of leading technology from the upcoming, higher efficiency heterojunction because it has a few more pathways to squeeze more efficiency from the solar cells at such amazing pricing. PERC cells have peaked at 23.9% efficiency right now – high chance we see a breakthrough of 24%, and beyond, real soon.

PERC – evidence of technological advancement in solar power. Over the last eight months we've seen Jinko and LONGi increase cell efficiency 5.4% – if they keep it up for seven more months we'll have 25% cells. Source – @TaiyangNews – 'PERC Solar Cell Technology 2018' pic.twitter.com/uApSfEQI3P
