Solar cells interconnection with multiple wires enables the module integration of metal-free silicon heterojunction (SHJ) solar cells. The electrical contact occurs between the transparent conductive oxide (TCO) of the SHJ cell and the low melting point alloy coated on the wires. First proof-of-concept bifacial modules are presented. The module efficiency drop between standard SHJ silver screen-printed cells and metal-free SHJ cell is only 0.5% abs. This drop is related to the high contact… CONTINUE READING
