Efficiency gains and productivity improvements are set to dominate the PV manufacturing landscape again in 2018, with strong investments continuing to flow into existing and new cell architectures, with gigawatt-level status now becoming the norm for the manufacturing segment, writes Finlay Colville.
The PV CellTech 2017 conference has just finished. The findings were revealing, stimulating, thought-provoking, and in terms of mass production metrics from a PV event, once again ground-breaking, writes Finlay Colville.
The most exciting talk title at PV CellTech 2017 in Penang, Malaysia, on 14-15 March 2017, could be the presentation from Canadian Solar titled: Black silicon & diamond wire sawing of wafers - the future for multi c-Si technology. Here, Finlay Colville talks to Guaqiang Xing of Canadian Solar.
PV CellTech 2017 takes place in Penang, Malaysia, on 14-15 March 2017, and we were delighted when we caught up with Qi Wang at JinkoSolar, who is delivering one of the keynote presentations on the morning of 15 March, titled: Record efficiency of industrial screen-printed multi c-Si solar cells.
