Demonstration of self-formation based flexible solar cells manufacturing technology

Objective

Whilst many achievements have been made over the last decades, costs of PV cells are still the main obstacle for increased utilisation of electric power provided by this clean and renewable technology. In order to become competitive, new improved solar cell concepts and cost-effective manufacturing solutions have to be developed to facilitate further growth of the sector.

The overall objective of the project is to demonstrate at industrial scale cost-effective crystalline Si PV cells manufacturing technology based on highly innovative manufacturing concept - self-formation. The fundamental principle of self-formation, having much in common with growth processes found in living nature, is generation of structural growth processes through interaction of chaotic and structured media. Self-formation manufacturing concept is based on the selected groups of planar bottom-up processes (so called self-formation processes) able to specifically form the structure of object.
