Deliverables

Recommendation on the optimization of TCOs, CSJs and multi-wires for optimized optical performance on module level

The development of high performance modules in WP4 will be supported by optimizing optical performance on module level. Technology-related target requirements for TCOs, CSJs and multi-wires for best optical performance will be determined.

Report on social LCA in accordance with international guidance on social LCA

The concept of social acceptance with be assessed using the Social Life Cycle Assessment (social LCA) framework, which has been developed by UNEP and SETAC in accordance with the ISO 14040/44 standards for LCA. The study will assess the potential positive and negative social impacts, including those that are unexpected and unintended.

Report on environmental LCA in accordance with international standards on LCA

The solar cell prototypes will be assessed with an LCA study in accordance with the ISO standards for LCA providing scientific evidence on traditional environmental indicators from primary energy consumption, GHG emissions to water footprint and land use amongst others.

Report on the Round Robin on cells with advanced front-side metallization schemes

The measurement results obtained by each partner will be compared and differences will be discussed. Consequently, measurement rules will be deduced for improvement of accuracy and comparability of calibrated measurements.

Project Identity Set

The project identity set includes a logo, an initial brochure (project presentation including challenges, context, objectives, results, partnership...) a slide Template as well as a poster presentation for public event/ workshop / conference
