“We are very proud of this result as it demonstrates the leadership of the CIGS technology produced by Q-Cells’ subsidiary Solibro. The current record verifies the feasibility of the efficiency roadmap of the Q.SMART module targeting an average aperture efficiency out of series production of up to 16.7 % in 2016”, said Lars Stolt, CTO of Solibro.

Another milestone in solar efficiency. CIGS technology has advantages over monocrystalline and amorphous silicon. The disadvantage has been the lower efficiencies. But this seems to have been solved.
