ITRPV Readiness Questionnaire


ITRPV Readiness Questionnaire - Please return latest July 19, 2019

As last year in summer I plan to update the technology readiness of some of our diagrams in the ITRPV.

This year I selected the data in the diagrams 5, 6a&b, 7, 8a&b, 11, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23a, 24, 26, 28, 31, 35, 41b, 44 and 53.

To compare our 4 categories for the technology readiness with the international Technology Readiness Level (TRL) we prepared a rough comparison table.

As you may know, the TRL has 9 categories, ranging from category No. 1 for the earliest stage basic research to the category No. 9 for the final ready product.

We use only 4 categories for the tables “Wafer”, “Cell” and “Module”, No. 1 indicates mass production readiness and No. 4 stands for the not known industrial solution. By filling the table please take care of this.

The second important point is that we would like you to fill in the technology readiness as of today for the different parameters, therefore I deleted every year-numbers in the table.

Here is the table of the comparison I choose:

As you know, at the moment there is a big change in wafer dimensions ongoing. Therefore we would like to add questions on the readiness of the implementation of the different wafer sizes in mass production. Only for these questions in the table “Wafer Size in Production” we created a different classification as follows:

Please return the filled excel latest July 19th, 2019.

Please respond only with data where you have knowledge in, other please keep empty.

I will prepare the analysis and give the result to you before publishing.

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Jutta Trube. Many thanks in advance.
