Can Silevo Compete in the High Performance Solar Panel Race?: Silevo’s press materials describe its proprietar...

Silevo’s press materials describe its proprietary technology as hybrid because it uses elements of standard crystalline silicon solar cells and elements of thin film solar cells. “It’s not a pure-play thin film play. It’s not a pure-play crystalline play. It’s a hybrid,” said Silevo VP of Business Development and Marketing Chris Beitel. It “evolves silicon-based PV,” a press release detailed, “as the first hybrid solar solution to combine high-performance crystalline silicon N-type substrates, thin-film passivation layers and a unique tunneling oxide layer -- all in a single solar module.” The oxide film layer is a new way in which Silevo’s cells release electrons when hit by sunlight and prevent the electrons from returning to their previously stable position (passivation counteracting recombination), Beitel explained. The thin film layer (doped amorphous silicon) emits t...
