Stuttgart To Host International CIGS Workshop

News

Experts to share insights on the status and potential of emerging photovoltaic technology

Advances in commercially manufactured CIGS thin-film solar will be the topic when international experts convene at the ninth IW-CIGSTech workshop in Stuttgart on June 18, 2018.

CIGS modules deliver higher yields than conventional modules under low light conditions. They are better at handling shade. And with their streamlined look, they make for an attractive addition to roofs and facades. Researchers are also developing flexible, lightweight modules engineered to attain impressive levels of CIGS efficiency.

Organised by the Zentrum für Sonnenenergie- und Wasserstoff-Forschung Baden-Württemberg (ZSW), the workshop will focus on the current status of CIGS thin-film technology and what manufacturers, suppliers, mechanical engineering companies and research institutes can hope to achieve in the future.

By the year's end, plants with a cumulative annual production capacity in the gigawatt range should be up and running. CIGS PV factories with an annual capacity of 500 to 1,000 megawatts will be able achieve module efficiencies of 18 and more percent at a manufacturing cost of around 25 US cents per watt.
