Multi-busbar Technology for Record Solar Cells

One reason for solar power’s success in reducing cost is improvements in cell efficiency. While world record efficiency solar cells are light towers that are many years away from commercialization – if at all, they do show potential for optimization and innovation of a technology and inspire other researchers to work even harder on their scientific developments in that or a competing field.

A recent record efficiency of LONGi Solar has again put Passivated Emitter and Rear Cell (PERC) architecture into the spotlight. The vertically-integrated monocrystalline solar module manufacturer announced on 28 February that it attained a world record conversion efficiency of 23.6% for a commercial-size 6-inch monocrystalline PERC cell. In less than half a year, LONGi has improved its peak PERC cell efficiency three times – it reached a 23.26% efficiency level on 27 October 2017, beating its 22.71% record it announced only 10 days earlier.

Only 3 more days: EU PVSEC abstracts deadline on March 9

The world’s leading PV technology conference EU PVSEC, which will take place in Brussels, Belgium, in September, is looking forward to discussing the multi-busbar method and many other interesting and innovative technologies to improve the performance of solar wafers, cells, modules and systems. Be part of that group and submit your abstract by 9 March 2018.

EU PVSEC is also hosting an industry exhibition, where institutes and solar companies will display the latest in processing materials and production equipment technology.
