Honda Solar Technology (Honda Soltec, HST) in order to "future" as the theme exhibition of the conversion efficiency of 13.4% of the module.
The high conversion efficiency "by significantly improving the manufacturing process to improve manufacturing precision to achieve" (Honda Solar Technology). And the small size of the cell, but also to achieve higher values. But the "yield have yet to be assessed from the current transition to the new production line production line also needs some time, delivery time and other details determined" (the company).
A subsidiary of Showa Shell Solar Frontier said, "will strive to make the panel's opening in 2011 the Ministry of conversion efficiency of 13.3% in 2012 and further to 14.2%."
Germany Q-Cells SE exhibited a subsidiary of the German Solibro GmbH developed CIGS solar cell "Q. SMART". Made product from the conversion efficiency point of view, the whole panel up to 12.0%, the company has supplied products in the highest. The company in June 2010 under the German Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (Fraunhofer ISE) announced the results measured using the company's "Q. SMART UF" module, an area of 0.75m2 of the panel, the overall conversion efficiency of 13.0%, openings conversion efficiency of 14.2%.
Although the company did not participate in the United States MiaSole the exhibition, but developed a conversion efficiency of 13.8% of the CIGS solar cell modules. The efficiency value has been the U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) identification. MiaSole that into mass production after 2010, 10.5% module efficiency CIGS solar cell.
In addition, the major French glass manufacturer Saint-Gobain (Saint-Gobain), a subsidiary of German Avancis GmbH & Co. KG also announced in June 2010 and began construction of 100MW annual manufacturing scale conversion efficiency of more than 12% of the CIGS type solar cells factory. The plant will be officially put into operation in 2012. The company has submitted to the NREL 30cm2 square modules, announced the conversion efficiency of 15.1%
Toshiba or Mitsubishi and PSA supply vehicle battery system
It is reported that Japan's Toshiba (Toshiba Corp.) Mitsubishi Motors will be the upcoming release of an electric car battery supply system. And in addition to Mitsubishi, the Mitsubishi French partner - PSA Peugeot Citroen (PSA) is also possible to use Toshiba's R & D of lithium battery systems.
The news is issued, the Toshiba responded by saying: "Toshiba and Mitsubishi Motors began a year ago co-develop a vehicle called SCiB lithium battery system. The lithium battery system with superior charge capacity, charge time is short and long life. "
Toshiba also said: "As of this lithium battery system has not yet passed the final test, the Mitsubishi has not officially decided whether to adopt this system, but Toshiba is hoping to become Mitsubishi lithium battery system supplier."
Then Mitsubishi Motors spokesman said, Mitsubishi and Toshiba does in the system on the vehicle battery exchange. But Toshiba, Mitsubishi refused to eventually become a lithium battery system supplier for comment. In addition to Toshiba, the Mitsubishi also with other lithium battery systems supplier contact.
Turn-Key strive for more than 10% efficiency thin film silicon solar cells
Solar cell manufacturing equipment manufacturers to provide the complete production line of "total solution (Turn-Key Solution)" field to compete. Among them, the thin-film silicon solar cell conversion efficiency of the overall solution more than 10% of the target is gradually becoming a reality. On June 30, 2010 at the opening of the solar event in Yokohama "PVJapan 2010", the U.S. Applied Materials (AMAT), Solar (Oerlikon Solar) and Japan ULVAC (ULVAC) and other manufacturing equipment manufacturers made public the latest results. These results are used with micro-crystalline silicon thin-film amorphous silicon thin-film series of overlapping constructs.
Applied Materials in the United States held the day before the opening of PVJapan a reporter conference, thin-film silicon solar cells as the latest results, announced that 0.1m x 0.1m module conversion efficiency of 10.1%, 1.3m x 1.1m module conversion efficiency 9.9%. 0.1m x 0.1m module value is the U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory (National Renewable Energy Laboratory) measurement results, 1.3m x 1.1m module's value is measured in the U.S. Applied Materials, the results of their own.
Applied Materials, the United States overall solution is currently in 2.2m x 2.6m large-size modules to achieve a 9 percent conversion efficiency. The future the company plans to use the latest achievements of the large size of the module conversion efficiency of 10% as soon as possible and strive to make the module size by 2012 under the conversion efficiency of 11 to 12%.
Applied Materials, the end of 2010 the United States estimated the cost of solar cells into $ 3 / W. Then, with crystalline silicon solar cells and CdTe solar cells, the company's conversion efficiency of 10% of large-size thin-film silicon solar cells with higher competitiveness.
show on the PVJapan conversion efficiency of 9.7% of the thin-film silicon solar cells. Module size 1.1m x 1.3m. If you import a new overall solution, the conversion efficiency can reach 10.1%. In the future, the company will strive to make in 2015 ~ 2016 conversion efficiency of 14%.
Japan's ULVAC demonstrated by the company's trial in Chigasaki line manufacturing 9.65% conversion efficiency of the module. Module size 1.1m x 1.4m, the former stable conversion efficiency of 10.68% of. The company is also the conversion efficiency of over 10% of the target to continue to develop. The company said that with the conversion efficiency, but also quickly ready to TCO (transparent conductive oxide) to form device.
CIGS solar cell have appeared PVJapan, large-scale and efficiency of 13% of the product for the mainstream
Solar power system in the exhibition "PVJapan 2010" (Pacific Yokohama International Convention and Exhibition Center), there are a variety of large area and high efficiency CIGS solar cell test products and the products are Fair out.
