Schott Solar Cells achieve new efficiency records

September 1, 2011 § 2 Comments

The team at Schott Solar have been all fired up about their monocrystalline screen-printed solar cells; and they have reason to be excited with a cell power of 4.92 W.

In 2010 Schott Solar made waves with the world record for a module efficiency of 17.6 percent with their multicrystalline cell concepts.  With more than three years of development and research under their belts they were able to apply their expertise to monocrystalline.

Utilizing selective emitter technology and passivated rear side contact (PERC) they were able to achieve a cell that is now the world’s first 156 mm x 156 mm screen-printed solar cell with 20.2 percent efficiency. (Laboratory results in conjunction with The Schmid Group from Freudenstadt, Germany)

Schott Solar reports they are energized by these findings and are working on optimizing the manufacturing process for development of highly efficient modules. To follow the progress of Schott Solar’s new cell technology they will be sharing information at The 26th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC).
