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).

Here are some new pictures of a ground-mount installation from Georgia! The whole system was built with SES 21 USA supplied material.

This weekend, we went down to San Antonio to exhibit at this year’s Solar Fest.
The show was premier for our 16 foot demo roof. Displaying a complete Schletter mounting system and Schott Solar as well as Bosch Solar Energy modules, the demo-roof offers a great way to see and touch components of a solar PV installation. Visitors could touch inverters (KACO blueplanet xi-series) and learn about our brand new standardized PV solar systems for residential slanted roofs.
Additionally, we brought a Schletter WS WindSafe Roof-Top Rack System for Flat Roofs (picture: left).
Thanks to the whole team of volunteers from Solar San Antonio!
Hope to see you soon at the next solar event!
