A recent spate of solar cell efficiency gains and record results underline the continued efforts to boost conversion efficiencies, which are at the core of reducing cost-per-watt goals. However, bringing such technology into the mainstream volume production world at little or no increase in manufacturing cost will prove more challenging. This paper takes a look at the current mainstream c-Si cell metallization efficiency developments that are starting to enter volume production with a promise of 20% cell efficiencies and low manufacturing costs.
