Silfab Solar, DSM Ally to make Back-Contact PV Solar Modules

Silfab Solar is incorporating a conductive backsheet launched by DSM which is expected to increase the power output from solar energy almost by 30 percent.

North American leading solar PV module manufacturer, Silfab Solar has collaborated with purpose-led science-based sustainable living-promotional company, DSM to mass produce high-power back-contact PV solar modules.

Silfab Solar is incorporating a conductive backsheet launched by DSM which is expected to increase the power output from solar energy almost by 30 percent.

COO, Silfab, Paolo Maccario said, “When you combine DSM’s innovative technology and material science capabilities with Silfab’s proven designs, we are able to realize a nearly 30 percent increase in output over conventional modules. Today’s announcement represents our ongoing investment to deliver the most advanced and cost-effective solar module technology to the United States residential market.”

Vice President, DSM Advanced Solar, Pascal de Sain said, “We are very excited by our Silfab partnership. Silfab and DSM are a powerful combination. As North America’s leading and most innovative producer of affordable PV solar modules, and the PV industry’s leading material science-based player, respectively, we look forward to driving adoption of the next generation of PV solar modules in the United States.”

The strategic partnership of DSM and Silfab brings together two companies dedicated to enhancing module power, reliability and durability in a cost-effective module made in North America.

DSM’s Conductive backsheet design connects neighboring cells to transport more power from a module. Back-contact technology features all electrical contacts at the back of a solar cell, thus creating maximum space on the front of the module to capture and convert more light into energy. Silfab and DSM are concluding final testing to incorporate back-contact cells and conductive backsheets into Silfab’s product lines.
