Q-Cells sets two new records


The calibration laboratory of the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE in Freiburg confirmed the module efficiency of 18.5 per cent in reference to the aperture area for a module with 60 multicrystalline solar cells. With this efficiency record, Q-Cells has broken its own world record of 18.1 percent set in the summer of 2011.

On top of that, Fraunhofer ISE confirmed a peak output of 283 watts for a quasi-monocrystalline module. Q-Cells therefore states that it has the most powerful module currently among competitively priced quasi-monocrystalline modules. Both records are based on the innovative Q.ANTUM cell concept of Q-Cells.

Q.ANTUM solar cells and modules will be introduced into the market this year. Pilot production of the new cell concept is now underway in Thalheim, Germany.

‘With these world records, Q-Cells is once again underscoring its technology leading position in terms of efficiency as well as the output of its products," says Peter Wawer, Head of Technology at Q-Cells SE.
