7th International Workshop on CIGS Solar Cell Technology (IW-CIGSTech 7)

jointly organized by Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie GmbH (HZB) and Zentrum für Sonnenenergie- und Wasserstoff-Forschung Baden-Württemberg (ZSW)

IW-CIGSTech 7 will be an international workshop focusing on CIGS solar cell technology, combining scientific and technological aspects with their industrial applications. The workshop will consist of invited talks, discussions and poster presentations. The organizers would be  delighted to welcome you in Munich for a day of lively discussions of CIGS technology topics. Further details will be published soon.

THE LOW COST HIGH EFFICIENCY PHOTOVOLTAICS TECHNOLOGY

Photovoltaics (PV) today are dominated by crystalline silicon (c-Si) technology. Among alternative, thin-film technologies, CIGS is the most advanced and the most efficient. The PV modules with CIGS (Cu(In,Ga)(Se,S)2 ) absorbers are very effective in converting light directly into electricity. They are very well positioned in the field of PV technologies with present record efficiencies for small cells of 22.3 % and for production size modules of 16.5 %.

The recent progress at the cell level paves the way for progress at the mini module level (currently 18.7%, aiming at > 21%) and towards total area module efficiencies of 18%. The latter is expected to be realized in the near future through transfer and adaptation of laboratory technology. Low cost CIGS PV modules can provide electricity below € 0.05 / kWh (LCOE) and contribute to CO2 reduction in a significant manner.

20 poster presentations will be accepted for the workshop. Please send your suggestions including name, affiliation and title by 6th June at the latest to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
