Driving p- and n-type solar cell manufacturing beyond current limitations was a key topic at PV CellTech last week. We caught up with the CTO of leading PV equipment supplier Meyer Burger, Dr. Gunter Erfurt, during the conference, to discuss just how fast the industry is moving.
PV CellTech 2018 kicked off in Penang, Malaysia, yesterday, with the heads of technology in the PV industry debating the key topics for solar cells in the present and future. PV Tech caught up with Omid Shojaei, the CEO of heterojunction production equipment supplier INDEOtec to unpick the increasing interest surrounding the technology.
Aurora Solar Technologies has introduced the ‘Veritas Insight’, a new product that is designed to provide a fully integrated quality control system for high-efficiency solar cells such as PERC (Passivated Emitter Rear Cell).
Ahead of DuPont speaking at the PV CellTech 2018 meeting in Penang, Malaysia on 13-14 March 2018, PV Tech spoke with Guangyao Jin, Chief Scientist at DuPont Photovoltaic & Advanced Materials, on the company’s views on PV cell manufacturing.
As the leading PV equipment supplier to the industry over the past decade, it has been great to have Meyer Burger supporting PV CellTech events since we launched PV CellTech in 2016.
We caught up with the company’s CTO, Dr. Gunter Erfurt, recently, to get his thoughts on new developments in PV manufacturing, ahead of the forthcoming PV CellTech 2018 meeting in Penang, Malaysia on 13-14 March 2018, and what to expect from Dr. Erfurt at the event.
Ahead of the company’s forthcoming talk at the PV CellTech 2018 meeting in Penang, Malaysia on 13-14 March 2018, PV Tech met with Omid Shojaei, the CEO of heterojunction production equipment supplier INDEOtec, to get his thoughts on the new investments and expansions being applied to n-type heterojunction concepts.
Leading into the forthcoming PV CellTech 2018 meeting in Penang, Malaysia on 13-14 March 2018, PV Tech caught up with Gordon Deans P.Eng, founder & COO of Aurora Solar Technologies Inc., the inline solar cell measurement equipment specialist that is currently going through a rapid growth phase in new order intake from the PV industry.
The third PV CellTech event takes place in Penang, Malaysia in just two weeks from now, on 13-14 March 2018. The schedule of speakers and companies lined up this year is set to be both fascinating to hear, and essential to dissect, when looking at exactly how the PV industry will evolve beyond the 100GW of solar cells produced in 2017.
Consumption of polysilicon used by the solar industry will decline to below 4g/W during 2018, hitting 3.92g/W at the end of Q4’18, according to a new value-chain model developed by the in-house market research team at PV Tech.
Swiss-based PV manufacturing equipment specialist INDEOtec SA has successfully gained tool acceptance for its PECVD process tools from both Fraunhofer ISE and the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia for next-generation heterojunction solar cells.
Russia-based integrated PV manufacturer Hevel Group, which has switched production from amorphous silicon thin-film technology to silicon heterojunction (HJ) has said it has been successful in ramping to its 160MW nameplate capacity and achieving cell conversion efficiencies of 22.8%.
