Bifacial Efficient Solar Cell Technology with 4-Terminal Architecture for "Utility Scale"
  active project [2019-]
Project Leader: Massimo Mazzer


Applied Materials Italy has received a grant from the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) to participate in the BEST4U project. The objective of the industrial research project is to increase the efficiency of photovoltaic modules above 25 percent and improve bifaciality. To help achieve this, the consortium proposes the concept of a 4-terminal photovoltaic module having a bifacial silicon heterojunction cell as the bottom cell and a wide bandgap semiconductor cell as the top cell.
