Trina Solar Teams With SERIS To Develop All-Back-Contact Solar Cells


Solar Ltd. has signed a research agreement with the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS) to develop an all-back-contact, high-efficiency silicon wafer solar cell using Trina Solar's monocrystalline wafers. Trina Solar will engage SERIS to provide research and development services to develop a high-efficiency crystalline solar cell by printing contacts on the cells' backs to increase front-surface exposure to sunlight. The company targets to realize up to 21.5% production efficiency, and up to 23.5% laboratory test efficiency, with project completion within three years following commencement this month. In exchange for the project's intellectual property rights, Trina Solar will cover the cost of the research project. SOURCE: [link=] Trina Solar[/lin
