Final Report - HETSI (Heterojunction solar cells based on a-Si c-Si)

Project ID: 211821
Funded under: FP7-ENERGY

Abstract

This is the final report for the HETSI project which had as a short term goal the industrial feasibility of hetero-junction solar cells in Europe and, longer term, to demonstrate the concept of ultra-high efficiency rear-contact cells based on a-Si/c-Si hetero-junction. This report covers the objectives and methodology of the project before delving into the concept behind the project. Images are included.

It notes that photovoltaics offer a promising solution for carbon dioxide (CO2) emission reductions and climate change combat. However, before its wide spread on the market, Photovoltaics (PV) needs to find new approaches to make solar cells competitive with respect to conventional electricity sources.
