The Department of Energy award is aimed at the development of crystallization technology for more efficient and affordable solar cells.

SolarWorld has received a $4 million cooperative award from the U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative to intensify development of a silicon mono-crystallization technology.

The proprietary development has demonstrated promise to sharply reduce costs in the production of silicon mono-crystals while increasing the efficiency of photovoltaic cells, SolarWorld said.
