Suniva Inc., a manufacturer of crystalline silicon solar cells, says its R&D team has developed several silicon solar cells that exhibit 20% conversion efficiencies using a patented combination of simple cell designs and screen-printing technologies.

According to Suniva, these high-efficiency milestones have been verified by the Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory. The achievement also closely follows Suniva's two recent customer agreements with Germany's Solon AG and India's Titan Energy Systems Ltd.

‘This demonstrates that Suniva's advanced technologies in diffusion, surface passivation and contacts can increase conversion efficiency while reducing processing time and maintaining low cell cost,’ says Dr. Ajeet Rohatgi, Suniva's founder and chief technology officer.
