24.63% - New Heterojunction Solar Cell Efficiency Record Certified

CHINA, February. 4, 2019 /PVTIME/ - 2020 gets off to a flying start with a new heterojunction solar cell
efficiency record certified of 24.63% total area on M2 wafer.

This first in
class and outstanding milestone was achieved in partnership between CEA, INES and Enel Green Power. This result is exciting not only for the
efficiency figures but also because it was obtained using standard PECVD and
PVD layers on Meyer Burger equipment combined with busbarless screen
printing metallization. Process is fully compatible with the very high
throughputs required by this highly competitive industry.

The team is
now focusing towards two main objectives: obtaining these same results in the
Enel GreenPower fab in Catania and reaching 25% efficiency and more.
