The sun is shining over Europe and PVthin – Meyer Burger joins as member

PVthin is glad to announce that  Meyer Burger has joined as the newest member of the association. This is great news not only for us but also for solar power “Made in Europe” as the company is becoming a manufacturer of solar cells and solar modules, with production set to start in the first half of 2021 in Germany.

These ambitions are fully aligned with EU’s Green Deal which stimulate the increase the share of renewable energy production in Europe in order to achieve the 2030 climate targets.

About Meyer Burger:

Meyer Burger is a leading and globally active technology company specialising in innovative systems and production equipment for the solar photovoltaic market. The company has shaped the development of photovoltaics along the entire value chain and has set essential industry standards, such as the diamond wire saw technology, the industrial PERC solution and precision measurement technology for solar modules. A large proportion of the solar modules produced world-wide today are based on technologies developed by Meyer Burger.

In line with its new business model and strategy, Meyer Burger transforms itself into a manufacturer of high-performance photovoltaic cells and modules, based on its proprietary heterojunction/SmartWire technology. With heterojunction/SmartWire, the Company has developed the next-generation photovoltaic technology with higher conversion efficiency and higher energy yield than the current standard Mono-PERC and other heterojunction technologies currently available. Meyer Burger operates its research and development centers in Thun and Hauterive, Switzerland, its machine industrialization and manufacturing site in Hohenstein-Ernstthal, Germany and will produce the cells and modules in Bitterfeld-Wolfen and Freiberg, Germany.
