PERC solar cell production to exceed 15GW in 2017

Published: October 21, 2016

By By Finlay Colville, Head of Solar Intelligence, Solar Media

Passivated emitter rear contact (PERC) production is forecast to exceed 15GW in 2017, accounting for more than 20% of all p-type solar cells produced in the year. PERC has become the first major application for lasers in the mainstream c-Si cell sector in the solar industry, with all other applications either legacy/dormant or as part of process flows that may reside permanently in the research lab or at best make it into production, several years from now.
