Advanced solar technologies

A lot still needs to be done to make the most of the sun as a resource. Solar panel efficiency must continue to increase. And production and purchase costs must be reduced. To achieve this, we work with manufacturers on materials, technologies, and innovations. Examples are silicon PV, thin-film perovskite, and tandems.

Tandem technology for higher PV performance

A tandem panel consists of a combination of solar cells. This delivers a higher PV yield. Discover how we are further developing tandem technology.

New silicon solar cells

The most widely used technology for solar panels is crystalline silicon. More than half of all solar panels worldwide contain TNO technology.
