Exhausting the potential of solar modules based on cadmium telluride (CdTe) and making it usable for production on an industrial scale is the objective of a joint project of the Fraunhofer CSP and Calyxo GmbH.
Electricity is produced where it is needed – Continental and Fraunhofer CSP have now moved a step closer to this problem-solving approach for trucks: They present a truck with integrated solar modules on the roof and the wind deflector of the driver’s cab.
With the LID Scope, LayTec presents a device which enables simple, fast and flexible quality control for light-induced degradation (LID) in PERC solar cells. The technology was developed at the Fraunhofer CSP in Halle.
Higher yields of photovoltaic modules and new possible uses for solar energy in special climates through the development of new test methods – with these objectives, TÜV Rheinland, the Institute for Solar Energy Research Hameln and the Fraunhofer CSP have joined together in the Fidelitas project.
