IMEC touts industrial crystalline Si solar cell efficiencies of 17.4 percent

October 15, 2007

IMEC has claimed a breakthrough in crystalline Si solar cell efficiencies that have reached an efficiency of 17.4 percent with the potential to scale to efficiencies above 20 percent with a decrease in cell thicknesses, according to the R&D centre based in Leuven, Belgium.

The breakthrough comes from several years of research into a new cell concept dubbed ‘i-PERC’ (Passivated Emitter and Rear Cell).
