EU PVSEC: Masdar PV achieves 7.4% a-Si module efficiency


Masdar PV has reportedly improved the efficiency of its amorphous silicon (a-Si) solar modules to 7.4%, achieving an increase of over 1% in the past six months. “We have achieved this substantial increase in the efficiency of our modules because we have consistently focused on optimizing the production line in line with market requirements from the very outset.”

“A decisive factor in this respect was the work undertaken by our expert team, and for the future we see the possibility of increasing the efficiencies of our modules even further,” said Dr. Harald Bloeß, manager of engineering and transfer at Masdar PV.

“For our customers, this increase in efficiency signifies a cost advantage. For this reason, we are anticipating a further increase in the demand for our modules, which come into their own particularly in diffuse lighting conditions and high environmental temperatures,” said Frank Wouters, CEO of Masdar PV.

Masdar PV will be exhibiting on Level 3, Hall 1, Booth A30.
