Record 410 watt module with heterojunction solar cell technology

CEA INES team, in collaboration with Meyer Burger, achieves new heterojunction 72 cell module performance record at 410W.


The record module integrates heterojunction cells manufactured on industrial 2400 wph Meyer Burger cell manufacturing equipment on the CEA INES pilot line with an average HJT cell efficiency of 23.4%.


Achieved within the framework of the strong CEA – Meyer Burger partnership on heterojunction technology, the CEA INES pilot line for heterojunction cell manufacturing integrates Meyer Burger’s PECVD and PVD equipment. The record module was manufactured in Thun on Meyer Burger’s SmartWire Connection Technology (SWCT™) manufacturing equipment using materials based on the newest generation SWCT™.


This result highlights the very high potential of heterojunction technology and the 15 years of expertise of the CEA INES team on heterojunction technology strengthened by its partnership with photovoltaic equipment supplier Meyer Burger.
