Mono or Multi? The Crystalline Solar World Seems to Turn Towards Mono Cell Technologies


There is no doubt on the leading solar cell technology today – it is and will stay for the foreseeable future based on crystalline silicon wafers. The jury is still out about the crystallization type - multicrystalline and monocrystalline.


While multicrystalline has been the prime choice for low cost solutions, monocrystalline with its higher efficiency and higher cost was rather used for applications with limited space. As the PV market has been always very price sensitive, multicrystalline has been dominating the solar sector, in particular in the utility-scale segment, where most PV modules has been deployed so far. However, the recent trend towards PERC has been pushing the scale towards mono.


According to the April 2017 released 8th edition of the International Technology Roadmap for PV (ITRPV), an annual survey of leading players in the solar sector, casted multicrystalline (traditional multicrystalline and high performance multicrystalline) solar cells had a share of 65% in the field of crystalline cell technology by the end of 2016, which it anticipates to shrink to below 40% over the next 10 years. The monocrystalline wafer segment – supported by advanced cell technologies, including n-type - is supposed to capture 60% of the crystalline market by 2027, from around 35% end of 2016.


However, there are no limits to innovation. And it remains to be seen if multi will be able to come back.


In any case, EU PVSEC, the premier platform on solar technology research, is looking forward to discuss the latest research along the process chain of all crystalline silicon based PV technologies and beyond. Latest updates on the whole PV research, technologies and policies will be reported in the Conference that gathers the top players from around the globe in the Photovoltaic community. Be part of that group – and submit your abstract by 09 March 2018.

35th EU PVSEC 2018 Scientific Committee


Your Conference Programme is compiled by the photovoltaic professional world.


Following submission, your abstract will be reviewed by the international EU PVSEC Scientific Committee. This distinguished group is made up of more than 200 leading experts from institutional and industrial research organisations, based in 28 countries.
