PERC solar cell production to exceed 15GW in 2017

PERC solar cell production to exceed 15GW in 2017

PERC has become the first major application for lasers in the mainstream c-Si cell sector in the solar industry. Image: IFSH As we conduct our extensive market research phase to define exactly what the industry needs to be discussing and presenting at PV CellTech 2017 in Penang, Malaysia on 14-15 March 2017, one of the top technologies that is certain to be included again is passivated emitter rear contact (PERC) cells. Last March, at the inaugural PV CellTech event in Kuala Lumper, we had a whole afternoon dedicated to PERC, and all the leading cell manufacturers (in volume production of PERC) each presented on their company’s technologies, achievements and targets for future capacity upgrades and expansions. Next year for PV CellTech 2017 , the indications from our research so far would certainly merit PERC again being a key topic, but our approach is likely to move one ...
