Bifacial Thin Industrial multi-Crystalline Silicon Solar Cells

Objective

The aim of the Project is to reduce significantly the cost of PV energy through the development of albedo bifacial modules. These modules will incorporate low cost and high efficiency bifacial silicon solar cells. Bifacial solar cells will be done by a new industrial technology of thin silicon solar cells manufactured by an integral screen-printing technique and using a BSF structure. Previous work, made in part under the sponsorship of the European Commission (Venetian PV project from Joule III), has shown the viability of 14+14% efficiencies in screen-printed bifacial solar cells made on CZ silicon material. This new proposal is oriented to obtain a low cost (under 1.6¿/Wp) crystalline technology over a multi-Megawatt facility to be implemented at the end of the project.
