SHANGRAO, China, Jan. 5, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (“JinkoSolar” or the “Company”) (NYSE: JKS), one of the largest and most innovative solar module manufacturers in the world, today announced its affiliated company has recently granted rights to certain of its N-type TOPCon (Tunnel Oxide Passivated Contact)-related patents to one of the top ten solar module companies in the world (“Licensee”) with reasonable license fee arrangement, allowing Licensee to use certain JinkoSolar’s patented TOPCon technologies in its relevant TOPCon products.

JinkoSolar is overtaking most brands on the N-type TOPCon patent list with 330 granted TOPCon patents. This IP transaction between JinkoSolar and Licensee is a strategic win-win move by both companies, potentially strengthening the respective positions of the two companies in the markets.
