Abstract/Summary:


Back-contact silicon solar cells enable new concepts for the module design and assembly. Monolithic module assembly refers to a process whereby the solar cell circuit and the module encapsulation are accomplished during the lamination step. This paper describes the advantages of MMA, extension of MMA to multiple back-contact cell configurations, progress in design and qualification of commercial-scale modules based on MMA, and first results on pilot-scale production of MMA modules.
