About the Project
Advanced aRchitectures for ultra-thin high-efficiency CIGS solar cells with high Manufacturability, or ARCIGS-M, is an H2020 funded project coordinated by the University of Uppsala. The project gathers thirteen institutions aiming to work on lowering the production cost of thin-film solar cells by developing advanced solar cell architectures.
The project is working on thin film solar cells based on Cu(In,Ga)Se2, or CIGS, because this technology is low weight, low light efficienct, flexibile, has great aesthetics, and has reasonable and competitive production costs. Ultimately, the project main goal is to lower CIGS solar modules production costs to even lower numbers.
