Example text

Metals are delivered by a number of common producers. As a speciality, silver pastes for printing of solar cell contacts are manufactured by only a few producers, Heraeus being the biggest German source. 42 Gerhard P. Willeke and Armin Räuber Almost 90% of all solar cells are based on silicon. Silicon is produced since more than 50 years for the semiconductor industry, since more than 20 years in extremely high quality for the microelectronics industry. Under license from Siemens, Wacker Chemie was the first company to produce semiconductor grade silicon (polysilicon) in industrial scale, and the company succeeded to keep a top position under the three biggest silicon producers worldwide until today.

The development and industrialization of solar cells and modules was complemented by many activities around these two core topics. Numerous suppliers for materials, electronic components, and production equipment appeared, either as special branches of existing companies or as start-up companies. In addition, many project developers, system integrators, and installation firms brought photovoltaics to the customer. The rather broad commercial scene outside cells and modules is briefly described in Section 6.
