A Roadmap for the Future of Cell Development: Innovative Industrial Approaches

Wednesday, June 14, 2023
10:00 am - 11:45 am
Messe München
Hall A2, Booth A2.409

Wafer, cell and module production technology is constantly evolving. With a market share of around 95 percent, silicon-based solar modules dominate the global market. While the passivated emitter and rear cell concept (PERC) is the working horse of the industry, we are now seeing a transition towards new technologies: The global production of tunnel oxide passivated contact (TOPCon), silicon heterojunction (SHJ) and interdigitated back contact (IBC) cells has already reached GW level.

European machine manufacturers are the leading suppliers of solutions for the global market. Their innovative equipment has been developed to enable the high-quality, efficient production of solar cells. In this session, machine and equipment suppliers will be talking with European cell manufacturers about the state-of-the art of production technology and the future trends in the beyond-TW-scale market.
