Q CELLS signs licensing deal with German solar module manufacturer

Q CELLS licensing deal

Q CELLS entered into a license agreement with a German solar module manufacturer to allow the company access to Q CELLS’ patent-protected solar cell passivation technology. The terms of the agreement remain confidential between the two parties.

The solar module manufacturer in question acknowledges both the validity of the Q CELLS patent, and also the high performance and reliability of the passivation technology developed and patented by Q CELLS.  This license agreement demonstrates the strength of Q CELLS’ patented technology, which is currently the subject of patent infringement proceedings against other competitors. 

The licence agreement further validates Q CELLS’ leadership in solar R&D and its commitment to supporting a fair, cooperative and competitive solar industry.

“Q CELLS has a long R&D history of developing industry-leading technology, and has taken several actions to protect our intellectual property rights over the course of the past two years,” notes Daniel Jeong, CTO of Q CELLS. “In doing so, Q CELLS has always strived to protect a fair and healthy competition for the best technology in solar industry. Now, we are very glad to take a major step forward together with this German solar manufacturer to establish this fair competition environment, which is an important prerequisite for the sustainable growth of the solar industry.”
