imec develops bifacial n-PERT solar cell with 22.8% front-side efficiency

By Kelly Pickerel Imec, the world-leading research and innovation hub in nano-electronics, energy and digital technology and partner in EnergyVille announced it has realized bifacial n-PERT solar cells using an industrially-compatible process with a record-setting front-side conversion efficiency of 22.8%. Used bifacially under standard front illuminations conditions in conjunction with an additional 0.15 sun rear illumination, these cells can produce the equivalent energy of 26.2% monofacial cells. With a projected potential low cost-of-ownership at module level (< 0.30 $/Wp), the newly developed bifacial cell technology allows a further reduction of the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) of large photovoltaic (PV) installations.
