From Wafers to Modules to Mass Production: Solving All Bottlenecks in Silicon Heterojunction Technology

  • 1. CSEM
  • 2. EPFL


Silicon heterojunction solar cells have less manufacturing steps and have allowed achieving higher efficiency than PERC cells.
However the market has been slow in taking up the technology. Here we show some of the obstacles that have been overcome in the last 10 years which make the technology more ready than ever for a mass market launch.
