Wednesday, 5 June 2019

CTO Dialogue Session

(PudongBallroom 5-7)

16:45-17:20

Panel discussion:

1.    The industry is moving to larger wafer sizes for p-type multi and mono as well as n-type. What are the benefits and challenges of going to larger wafers?

2.    Larger wafers mean increases sheet resistance. What are the best technologies to deploy to meet high-output and longevity requirements for the panels and what impact does non-standard sizes have in the downstream? 

3.    P-type mono bifacial modules are expected to become the mainstream as record cell and module efficiencies have been widespread in recent years. What technologies at the cell and module will need to adopted to reach the potential limits of the technology? 

4.    Many PV Manufacturers R&D activities are now including heterojunction. Why is HJ technology becoming so attractive and what areas need to be improved for commercialisation? 

5.    Looking short term into the future. What technologies (wafer, cell and module) will migrate from the lab to the fab and why?

 

Moderator:

• Mr Mark Osborne, Technical Publishing Director, Solar Media Ltd
