The innovative bifacial heterojunction technology guarantees superior performance compared to conventional modules, thanks to the intrinsic characteristics of the advanced bifacial structure that allows maximizing energy production while minimizing the cost of electricity (LCOE) in utility-scale installations. In addition, the project aims to enable the application of the tandem structure to heterojunction solar cells, in order to overcome the theoretical limit of silicon and achieve conversion efficiencies beyond 30%.
TANGO will provide European technological leadership in the field of next generation photovoltaic cells and modules, and a positive impact on the whole photovoltaic value chain.
CEA at INES is partner of ENEL Green Power on heterojunction technology since 2015.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
