Sustainable solar supply chains: returning cell-to-module PV manufacturing to Europe

The move by Meyer Burger to re-establish cell-to-module PV manufacturing in Europe has reignited hopes for a return to Europe to large-scale, advanced PV production. The company’s pivot from the supply of PV production equipment to cell and module manufacturing at scale in Germany is sparking a rethink on what sustainable solar supply chains look like – as solar expands to be one of the major energy sources in a rapidly decarbonizing European Union.

In April, Meyer Burger launched its heterojunction/SmartWire high-efficiency modules. In this pv magazine Webinar, we will learn about the company’s vision for reliable, locally made PV cells and modules, and how the renaissance of a vertically integrated PV manufacturing ecosystem can create jobs and value across Europe and deliver the long-lived and high-performance solar products required for the EU’s energy transition.

In the webinar, attendees will discover more details about the company’s heterojunction/SmartWire technology, its manufacturing facilities, and its future roadmap. It will also look into the way in which Meyer Burger will work with its installer and distribution customers to make the most out of European PV products for themselves and their customers and how the company is establishing a premium solar brand.

Looking inside manufacturing, the webinar will also address the sustainability of Meyer Burger’s production and materials, and how it will become a key differentiator for the company’s modules.

The webinar will include presentations and an interactive discussion with Meyer Burger Managing Director Moritz Borgmann – who is responsible for the company’s sales and marketing, along with Madlen Apel, the Head of Product Management.
