Facts and figures

  • Full title: Accelerated development and prototyping of nano-technology-based high-efficiency thin-film silicon solar modules

  • Acronym: FAST TRACK

  • Start Date: 1/03/2012

  • Duration: 36 Months

  • Total budget: 14 M €

  • EC funding: 9,3 M €

  • Final outcome: New generation PV Modules

  • Consortium



Project objectives

  • Cost reduction (down to below 0.5 €/Wp at system level, ensuring electricity prices well below 0.08 €/kWh in sun-rich areas), and reliability increase,

  • Improved lifecycle of PV systems (down to energy pay-back times below 0.5 – 0.7 year in southern parts of Europe).

  • Achieve solar cells with 14% stable efficiency, leading to the demonstration of reliable production size prototypes module at 12% level






This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 283501
