European thin-film solar PV research now aims at 25 percent efficiency for CIGS cells

Solar PV research: European “Sharc25” project aims to achieve 25 percent efficiency with thin-film solar cells

2015-06-02

The European research project “Sharc25” is setting out to make an extremely efficient thin-film solar photovoltaic (PV) cell for the next generation of more cost-effective solar modules. The objective is to achieve up to 25 percent efficiency in thin-film solar cells made by the co-evaporation of copper indium gallium (di)selenide, or CIGS for short. That kind of performance would top the previous best mark by just over three percentage points. Read more...
