Stion today announced a $2M award from the US Department of Energy's SunShot Initiative to continue pilot production and scale-up of its ultra high-efficiency thin film modules based on proprietary tandem junction technology.

The award is a Tier 2 grant under the Sunshot's Incubator 7 Program and is designed to accelerate the transition to commercial production. It is a follow-on to the Tier 1 award given to Stion in February 2011. As part of Tier 1, Stion successfully advanced its technology into commercial prototype stage and produced tandem junction prototype modules at 18.8% aperture efficiency, the highest for any module prototype based on thin-film technology.

"We are extremely excited to continue working with DOE to help address America's critical need for clean, secure sources of energy", said Chet Farris, Stion's President & CEO. "Our progress on the tandem technology demonstrates that thin films can achieve industry-leading efficiencies on a scalable, low-cost production platform."

Stion began shipments in March of products based on its single junction CIGSS technology, and has produced commercial modules with as high as 15.6% aperture efficiency.

The tandem junction module would increase efficiency by enabling broader and more effective harvesting of available light using an additional thin film device. It utilizes mechanically stacked top and bottom devices to eliminate the design and manufacturing challenges associated with traditional junction integration, and maintains the same glass / glass packaging design as Stion's current commercial modules.
