Advanced doping technologies for high efficiency n-type cell architectures was a key topic at PV CellTech 2018. After the conference, we caught up with Christian Buchner, Vice President of the Photovoltaics BU at leading PV equipment supplier SCHMID Group, to tap into some key takeaways.
Leading ‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member JinkoSolar has highlighted the significance and its capabilities behind setting multiple P-type multicrystalline PERC solar cell efficiency and module output records at PV CellTech 2018 technical conference held in Penang, Malaysia this week.
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.
PV Tech recently met up with Christian Buchner - Vice President of the Photovoltaics BU at leading PV equipment supplier SCHMID Group - ahead of the forthcoming PV CellTech 2018 meeting in Penang, Malaysia on 13-14 March 2018, an event SCHMID has been strongly supporting for the past few years.
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.
‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member JA Solar was the sole supplier of PV modules to a 35MW PV plant completed in December 2017, in the Negev Desert using its P-type mono PERC (Passivated Emitter Rear Cell) modules.
Leading integrated high-efficiency monocrystalline module manufacturer and ‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member LONGi Green Energy Technology has officially reignited previously suspended manufacturing plans in Andhra Pradesh, India.
‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member LONGi Solar, a subsidiary of LONGI Green Energy Technology, the largest monocrystalline wafer producer in the world has reported that TUV-SUD has verified its P-type monocrystalline PERC module to have a conversion efficiency of 20.41%, a new industry record.
Inline solar cell measurement equipment specialist Aurora Solar Technologies (AST) said it was developing its technology to support heterojunction (HJ) solar cell development and Industry 4.0 initiatives in China for next-generation advanced solar manufacturing plants.
The deployment of renewable energy, especially solar, is becoming ever more popular. It is estimated that with every 1% increase in PV cell efficiency, electricity costs would decrease by 7%; therefore, improving solar cell efficiency is very important for reducing the average electricity-generating cost of solar and driving it towards grid parity.
