Sulfurcell Solartechnik will be debuting its newest prototypes for its 1.25m x 0.65m module line that has a TÜV Rheinland confirmed efficiency rating of 10.7% and a peak output of 86.8W. Sulfurcell has been producing thin-film modules using selenide, not sulphur, in its new CIGSe modules with the intent to translate part of its production next year to CIGSe.
Sulfurcell has been working on CIGS modules to replace copper indium sulfide, or CIS technology. This past July, the company produced its first large-format CIGSe solar module prototype, which reached an efficiency of greater than 10%. “The development success confirms our strategy of continually furthering Sulfurcell’s proven technology. It was possible because we were able to build on the experience gained from five years of producing and marketing CIS modules. The high module efficiency demonstrates that we will also be able to compete in the very top league of thin-film specialists in future,” stated Dr. Nikolaus Meyer, CEO and founder of Sulfurcell.
Sulfurcell will be demonstrating its prototypes from September 6 through 10 at the EU PVSEC booth L3 H3 D22.
