Raymond De Munnik

The opening session of PV CellTech Europe 2024 will confront the major challenge confronting the PV sector today – getting n-type cells working with high yield and optimum performance levels, while ramping up huge amounts of new capacity installed in the past 12-18 months. How can mass production yields be improved? How can fleet efficiencies closer match the R&D results being reported? How can module powers be aligned to the potential of record cell efficiencies now being championed across the industry?

Heterojunction advances in R&D & mass production

Moderator

Speaker - TK

Tatiana Kozlova

Solar Technology Program Manager
Shell

After TOPCon, heterojunction is the other main n-type technology that has seen significant new capex during the past few years and is being deployed now across new factories in China, India, Europe and the US. This session will hear from leading heterojunction producers globally, their plans for expansions, and the latest mass-production metrics. Advances in production equipment will be a further focus of this session.

PV CellTech Europe 2024 key topic discussion: Wafer production for the PV industry

Moderator

Finlay-Colville

Finlay Colville

Head of Market Research
PV-Tech

Following the demise of c-Si ingot and wafer production in Europe during 2023, the entire c-Si based sector today is dominated exclusively by Chinese-owned companies pulling ingots and slicing wafers at fabs across mainland China and Southeast Asia. New approaches and entrants are needed urgently to help drive the industry forward from technology and supply-chain perspectives. This session will look at the companies and technologies that are best placed to drive this sea change in how wafer manufacturing is undertaken in the PV industry out to 2030.
