ECN to launch new back contact silicon cells and -modules @EUPVSEC

Technology highlights
Back contact cells and modules are the new trend in silicon photovoltaics and ECN is at the forefront of this trend. Come look at ECN’s latest developments leading to the breakthrough of back contact in the global market:

  • our new back contact, shade-tolerant high-voltage module delivering up to 70% more output compared to standard technologies depending on shading conditions of the module;
  • the back contact n-type silicon Metal Wrap-Through (n-MWT) modules currently being commercialized by launching partner Yingli;
  • our advanced, yet easily processed back contact Interdigitated Back Contact (IBC) cell that can be implemented in your current factory;
  • the latest in back contact module reliability.
