Sliver solar cells: high efficiency, low cost PV technology

Franklin, Evan; Everett, Vernie; Weber, Klaus; Blakers, Andrew


Sliver cells are thin, single-crystal silicon solar cells fabricated using standard fabrication technology. Sliver modules, composed of several thousand individual Sliver cells, can be efficient, low-cost, bifacial, transparent, flexible, shadow tolerant, and lightweight. Compared with current PV technology, mature Sliver technology will need 10 of the pure silicon and fewer than 5 of the wafer starts per MW of factory output. This paper deals with two distinct challenges related to Sliver cell...[Show more]
