Back-contact back-junction silicon solar cells appear where high power is required at low area consumption such as rooftops, building-integrated PV, portable electronics, or electro mobility. Increasing conversion efficiency and decreasing manufacturing costs will likely catalyse the back-contact technology beyond the niche market and, consequently, the market share of back-contact cells has the potential to drastically increase.
Fraunhofer ISE will host the 8th Back-Contact Workshop in Freiburg (DE) on 21-22 November, 2017, to discuss the next steps on the way to a deeper market penetration with back contact cell and module technologies. The workshop will include talks of renowned scientists within the sessions on BC cell and module technology, materials and components, industrial production, and alternative applications.
