Within this framework, the aim of AMPERE is to develop an EU innovative and sustainable manufacturing full-scale automated industrial pilot line, to produce heterojunction technology (HJT) silicon solar cells and modules. The expected impact of AMPERE is a regain of competitiveness in the entire EU PV value chain (from materials, to equipment and cell/module manufacturers).
It bases on a unique consortium, with worldwide experience in the field of coatings, HJT cells and modules, along with the full production technology, which capitalize on one decade of advanced industrialization and development in the field.
