SIBCO presents its new, low cost, 156mm IBC cell,
Eff 21%, and IBC module technology at the SNEC
2012 show in Shanghai. The technology is very well
received and despite the difficulties in the PV
market this IBC technology will allow PV companies
to differentiate and grab the increasing market for
high efficiency modules.
SIBCO's IBC module has a CTM loss of < 1%
resulting in 60 cell modules of 297 - 300Wp!
SIBCO and its engineering team successfully complete the
testing of a new material system for back contact modules
that reduces the cost of the material system with 20%. This
material system is now ready for introduction to its back
contact customers worldwide.
