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.”

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
