Fraunhofer ISE Sets Efficiency Record for Multicrystalline Solar Cells Made of Polysilicon from WACK...

In order to achieve the new efficiency record, important steps of the crystallization and cell manufacturing processes were optimized individually to the requirements of the multicrystalline starting material. Apart from an optimized plasma texture the researchers also used the so called Tunnel Oxide Passivated Contact technology (TOPCon) for rear side cell connectivity. Developed by Fraunhofer ISE, this process involves applying the electrica...

GE Will Help Build One of Egypts 1st Utility-Scale Solar Power Plants with 1,500-Volt Technology

Egypt is rising to become the next solar hotspot. Part of the government's ambitious sustainable energy strategy is the landmark solar feed-in tariff (FiT) program, which sees the utility-scale solar power plants taking off in the country for the first time. Made up of solar photovoltaic power plants with a combined capacity of 500 megawatts (MW), the project will help drive sustainable energy growth, support the local economy and protect the env...
