Multicrystalline PV sector strikes back against monocrystalline

Presentation by GCL System Integration at EU PVSEC 2017: Industrially feasible PERC cells on diamond wire sawn multicrystalline silicon wafers textured by RIE towards 20.78% efficiency

More efficient Passivated Emitter and Rear Cell (PERC) technology will soon gain ground on multicrystalline cells made of cost-cutting diamond-wire-sawn wafers with a so-called ‚black-silicon’ texture, thus giving the multicrystalline sector a new boost in the race with the monocrystalline competition.

Johannes Bernreuter, head of Bernreuter Research, reports this latest trend from the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference (EU PVSEC) in Amsterdam on the PV-Tech website.
