Swiss cell and module manufacturer Meyer Burger Technology Ltd says it has signed »multi-year cooperation agreements« with four research partners: the Swiss CSEM (Centre Suisse d'Electronique et de Microtechnique) and the three German institutes Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB), Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE and the Institute for Photovoltaics at the University of Stuttgart.
The aim of the consortium is to industrialize production processes for tandem solar cells made of silicon and perovskite. Meyer Burger, a manufacturer of production equipment for the solar industry until the company’s strategic realignment about three years ago, has »a long tradition of proprietary development« and thus »an extensive portfolio of processes, technologies, and production techniques at its disposal for the potential mass production of tandem solar cells and modules in-house.« The declared goal of the cooperation is »the industrial production of cells with efficiencies of more than 30 percent.«
