A Breakthrough in Photovoltaics


The silicon wafer is the most expensive part of a solar module, representing nearly 40% of its cost. 1366 Technologies has invented a breakthrough in solar photovoltaics manufacturing called the Direct Wafer® process. It cuts the cost of the standard, silicon wafer by more than half and slashes the energy needed to produce the wafer by more than 60%.

What is the Direct Wafer® process?


The traditional PV wafer making process is cumbersome, expensive and wasteful. It is the heart of a 35-year-old manufacturing challenge that has hindered the wide-scale adoption of solar. The Direct Wafer® technology
solves this challenge.
