ZSW, First Solar Partner on Thin Film PV Research


Stuttgart-based Zentrum für Sonnenenergie- und Wasserstoff-Forschung Baden-Württemberg (ZSW) and First Solar have formed a strategic research partnership focused on advancing thin film PV. 

The partnership will focus both on performance and the potential to develop and optimize all-thin-film tandem technologies on a gigawatt scale.

ZSW, a research institute with a focus on thin film PV, has concentrated on materials development and processes from technology transfer to production. First Solar has focused on producing eco-efficient solar modules, developed at company R&D labs in California and Ohio.

The partnership will focus on tandem solar cells.
