1 Billion Q.ANTUM Solar Cells

Hanwha Q CELLS announces it successfully mass produced 1 billion Q.ANTUM solar cells. Q.ANTUM is Hanwha Q CELLS´ proprietary cell technology and supercharges ordinary crystalline solar cells and modules. The rear surfaces of Q.ANTUM solar cells are treated with a special nano coating that functions much like a typical household mirror. Rays of sunlight that would otherwise go to waste are reflected back through the cell to generate more electricity. Q.ANTUM delivers exceptional performance under real-world conditions. Q.ANTUM technology has been developed in the company´s Headquarter for Technology, Innovation and Quality in Thalheim, Germany, and has been in commercial mass production since 2012. As of June 2017, Hanwha Q CELLS has produced a total volume of around 5 Gigawatt of Q.ANTUM solar cells.
