One of the sector’s most innovative companies and a true system integrator in PV manufacturing, Meyer Burger is one of the solar sector’s shining lights. PES is proud to present a snapshot of this pioneering corporation.
Meyer Burger stands for leading-edge photovoltaic technologies. The Swiss company is the only equipment manufacturer in the world who owns all key technologies in the photovoltaic value chain – wafer, cell, module, systems. The core competencies and process know-how of all members in the group help contribute to a sustainable reduction in manufacturing costs for solar systems, which promotes the application of clean technology worldwide.
Improving efficiency – reducing costs
The Meyer Burger Group has set itself the goal of lowering manufacturing costs throughout the entire photovoltaic value chain while improving the efficiency level of solar systems. Based on its broad process expertise, Meyer Burger is developing integrated system solutions which incorporate several processes. The group’s intensive research and development activities are setting new standards in production methods and are driving the industrialisation of solar technology forward. The resulting reduction in manufacturing costs increases the possibility of actively utilising the process of converting sunlight into electricity worldwide as an important element of energy production.
Closing the gap – expertise in solar cell technologies from Roth & Rau
The friendly takeover of Roth & Rau will be a further important step for Meyer Burger. With Roth & Rau the company will expand its know-how and its existing services in the solar business. Due to the increase in size and expertise in solar cell coating, the Meyer Burger Group will be able to ensure the further reduction of costs per kilowatt hour of electricity.
The German company, Roth & Rau, has outstanding technological know-how as well as the suitable production procedures for the processing and coating of solar cells.
