Solibro Notes CIGS Module Efficiency Record

Solibro GmbH, a subsidiary of Q-Cells SE, says its Q.SMART copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) module technology has become the first in the thin-film sector to achieve a solar module efficiency of 17.4% (aperture area).

The new record has been confirmed by the independent Fraunhofer ISE Institute, located in Freiburg, Germany. The record test module, measuring 16 square centimeters, was fabricated using processes fully scalable to cost-effective mass production, the company adds.
