TSMC Solar Commercial-size Modules (1.09 Square Meters) Set 15.1% Efficiency Record

TAICHUNG, Taiwan, Jan. 31, 2013 — (PRNewswire) — TSMC Solar Ltd. today announced confirmation by both TUV SUD and UL that its commercial-sized (1.09 square meters) champion CIGS module has achieved 15.1% module total area efficiency. The champion module sets a new world record for monolithic thin-film module efficiency, and was produced using the current manufacturing equipment and materials at the company's manufacturing facility in Taichung, Taiwan.

"In just one year, our process technology has made great progress. Our champion modules now have comparable module efficiency to mainstream multi-crystalline silicon modules, demonstrating TSMC Solar's ability to realize the high-efficiency potential of our CIGS technology. Our technology's superior competitiveness comes from its high efficiency, excellent high temperature performance and intrinsic cost structure advantages," said Ying-Chen Chao, President of TSMC Solar.

"Customers appreciate our ability to continuously improve module efficiency. In addition, TS CIGS Series modules deliver up to 5% additional energy yield over crystalline silicon in high temperature regions," said Stephen McKenery, TSMC Solar Worldwide Sales Head.
