Industrially scalable high efficiency silicon solar cells (INDHI)

Objective

Aim of the present project is to transfer lab scale high efficiency cell results into a real industrial environment, by developing a new fabrication process of industrial, large area, multi-crystalline silicon solar cells, which will sort out conversion efficiency values of 17.5-18%, that is, respect to existing industrial production, more than four absolute points efficiency increase, and a 2 absolute points efficiency gain respect to the state of the art. In addition, some innovative, low cost procedures will be studied to go further in the development of industrial cell fabrication. A continuous cost evaluation of the production concepts will be given through yield indicators, to check the effectiveness of the high efficiency technologies on the on-line production cell performances. In this way, the technical-economical risks of the proposal will be reduced. Cost goal is
