Flexibility at the speed of light

The world of solar energy is undergoing a process of revolutionary change. While time-to-market has become unbelievably short, there is now an unprecedented degree of interlinkage between industry and research. The Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN), home to numerous breakthrough technologies, is still riding the top of the wave, both in crystalline silicon and in thin-film solar cells. Our breakthrough technologies include inline cell processing, silicon nitride anti-reflection & passivation layers and Metal Wrap Through (MWT) back-contact cell technology – all technologies that are playing key roles in shaping today’s PV industry.

Accelerating change in the market

ECN is keen to address tomorrow’s problems, by focusing on material fundamentals such as the reduction of materials per Wp and the replacement of scarce or toxic materials, and on radically new manufacturing processes. From lab to fab in one year: we can offer our industrial partners an unparalleled opportunity to work with one of the most flexible and knowledgeable research institutes in the world.
