In 2016 Hanwha Q CELLS, one of the world’s largest producers of photovoltaic modules and Silicon Module Super League member has placed an order to InnoLas Solutions GmbH for an ILS-TT laser machine for its R&D facilities. The ultrafast and precise laser processes of InnoLas help to increase solar cell efficiency as well as throughput, thus reducing the overall cost of solar power. The ILS-TT is a production proven high throughput laser machine platform, which allows Hanwha Q CELLS to further improve their existing production processes for their crystalline Silicon solar cells.

The example of Witstung shows the current problem of the energy transition. The small settlement near Bühl in southern Germany consists of ten buildings, every second of which is equipped with a photovoltaic system. On the balance sheet, the amount of energy generated by the PV systems is already as high as the energy consumed in Witstung over the year. Generation and consumption often widely differ, so that a large amount of electricity is fed into the local power grid. In the summer months, therefore, overloads of the power grid, so-called voltage band problems, often occur.
