MOEA Will Fund Gintech and Utech for Mono-like wafers & Copper-plating Cells Research
Release Date: 2012/05/24
Ministry of Economic Affairs(MOEA) Will Fund Gintech and Utech Jointly to Undertake R&D Projects on “Mono-like Crystalline Silicon Wafers and High Efficiency Copper Plating Solar Cells" Research.
Under the steep competition of solar industry, producing high-efficiency and low-cost products are the primary missions for Gintech Energy Corporation (Gintech). Leading by Gintech, together with Utech Solar R&D teams, the researches on developing high-efficiency mono-like wafers and copper-plating technologies on cells were undertaken.
The copper-plating technologies, once successful, can be an alternate for silver-plating conductive method. The expected efficiency will reach 19.0% with 4.6 W/pc (6-inch) output. The R&D projects have been accepted by Department of Industrial Technology of MOEA and will be funded as part of MOEA’s Industrial R&D and Innovative Projects.
