Heraeus Photovoltaics

Heraeus Photovoltaics, received the Solar + Power Award 2016 at a parallel event during the intersolar show in Munich, Germany for its new passivated emitter rear contact (PERC) backside tabbing paste.

The award highlights company’s long-standing track record of innovation in PERC-solar cell technology.

Heraeus’ winning product, the SOL326 Series, is a low-activity PERC back-side silver tabbing paste for mono- and multi-crystalline solar cell wafers.  The SOL326 series features enhanced solder-ability and higher adhesion thus increasing the long-term reliability of PERC-solar cells.

SOL326 series is part of Heraeus PERC-package, which also includes the SOL9631 series, a low-temperature front-side paste which reduces light-introduced-degradation (LID) loss to be similar as a normal P-type module.

Photovoltaics will become the most efficient way to produce energy in the future. We predict levelized costs of electricity to be reduced by 50% in the next five years”, said Andreas Liebheit, President of Heraeus Photovoltaics. “Heraeus already today contributes strongly to this vision by delivering the most efficient silver pastes in the PV industry,”
