ABOUT CHANNEL

Q-Cells

At the end of 1999 Q.CELLS started its production of silicon solar cells in the first half year of 2001 with only 19 employees. Now over 2000 people work for Q.CELLS. Since its founding, Q.CELLS has developed from one of the world’s largest solar cell manufacturers to a leading photovoltaics company within a few years. The extensive product portfolio ranges from solar cells, crystalline and thin-film solar modules to complete photovoltaic systems. Q.CELLS develops and produces its products at the group's head office Bitterfeld-Wolfen, Germany as well as in Malaysia and markets through a global network of distributors. The company’s goal is:
To reduce the costs of photovoltaics quickly and sustainably and to make the technology competitive.

Q.CELLS demonstrates technology leadership

Having four other world records emphasises Q.CELLS’ position as a technology leader. Q.CELLS developed a new cell concept called Q.ANTUM. This technology has enabled an increase in efficiency in multicrystalline solar cells to 19.5% and more.

Through a close integration of research, development and production at their headquarters, Q.CELLS transfers research results directly into the series production and thus reduces costs of photovoltaics quickly and sustainably, to make the technology competitive.

On 25th July 2011 Q.CELLS celebrated its first solar cell made 10 years ago. On the same day its own module production of monocrystalline high performance modules started in Solar Valley Thalheim Q.PEAK in Thalheim.

The final quality inspection of all solar cells produced took place in their own module test line. Certification is via the VDE seal of quality “Quality Tested”. Q.CELLS developed the testing process together with the Association of Electrical, Electronic and Information Technology (VDE), the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE) as well as another photovoltaics company, as a foundation for the certification. The testing criteria of VDE seal of approval “Quality Tested” go beyond the requirements of the known IEC standards.

Q.CELLS established “Q.CELLS long-term profit protection” as their own quality seal. All solar products of the next generation are characterised by higher degrees of efficiency and secure revenue. Q.CELLS guarantees this with technological further developments based on solar cells.

The crystalline solar modules with the seal of quality “Q.CELLS long-term profit protection" provide an innovative Anti-PID Technology (APT) and are protected against hot spots thanks to their unique Hot-Spot-Protect (HSP) quality control. They are also individually coded using a laser marking method Tra.QTM and can be tracked along the entire value chain. Q.CELLS backs up these advantages with guarantees which are unique compared with other competitors. A linear performance guarantee for 83% after 25 years with crystalline solar modules or 85% with CIGS thin-film modules.

The thin-film modules Q.SMART from Q.CELLS not only provide PID protection, but are also equipped with an Additional Power Boost (APB); this power gain of up to 15% is achieved with positive sorting and the so-called Light-Soaking-Effect. Those who purchase Q.SMART solar modules thus receive more performance then they pay for. Q.SMART is also suited to multiple applications thanks to its outstanding weak and sub-optimally angled light conditions. Q.CELLS summarise the advantages of the different installation options under the term 360° efficiency (TDE - Three hundred and sixty Degree Efficiency).

At the world’s largest expert conference, the Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition PVSEC, Q.CELLS will present its high-performance solar module Q.PEAK Black.
