Current growth in the popularity of solar energy testifies to this shifting paradigm in energy innovation. According to the International Energy Association (IEA), global demand for solar energy is likely to reach 953/Twh by 2025 achieving an annual growth rate of 14.3% from the 328/Twh required in 2017. IEA also projected that solar energy could contribute 27 percent of global electricity by 2050. And due to recent technological advances, decreasing LCOE has contributed to a surge in solar energy adoption.
The current challenge facing the solar energy industry is delivering high performance and reliability in various real life conditions at the lowest possible cost. Approximately 400 scientists at Hanwha Q CELLS' 4 global R&D centers in Germany, Korea, China, and Malaysia are persistently examining ways to overcome this barrier and provide ever better solutions. As a result of decades-long research and development for greater technological innovation and energy efficiency, the proprietary Q.ANTUM technology debuted in 2011 setting new standards in the solar energy industry.

The Q.ANTUM technology developed by Hanwha Q CELLS is based on Passivated Emitter Rear Cell (PERC) technology. PERC allows for the passivation of the solar cell´s rear side, which involves installing a reflective layer, designed to capture previously unused sunlight back into the cell where it can be converted into solar electricity.

Hanwha has four ways with which it ensures uncompromising quality and can guarantee that every one of its solar modules will maintain high performance and reliability even under harsh conditions. Hanwha has applied its methodology by leveraging its decade of experience and its wealth of data to develop algorithms and qualitative analysis to perfect its Q.ANTUM technology. Hanwha applies 4 quality control measures to ensure performance and quality: yield security assessments, examinations by global certification institutions, VDE Quality tests, and Hanwha’s own Q-Tests.
The products certified by the Q-Test are put through rigorous testing in extreme conditions such as blizzards, hail showers, high-temperatures and humidity. As a result, these products exhibit capabilities that are double or even triple of those that meet standard requirements of IEC and VDE.
Hanwha Q CELLS has won the 2017 Intersolar Award in the Photovoltaics category.
Hanwha Q CELLS' Q.PEAK RSF L-G4.2 solar module was selected as the most innovative out of ten shortlisted entries and out of 51 applications in total.
The Q.PEAK RSF L-G4.2 was awarded the PV magazine award in the top innovation category. The magazine´s judging panel honored Q.PEAK RSF L-G4.2 for its reinforced steel-frame concept and many additional innovations such as a decentralized junction box and an easy to install new mounting system.
Hanwha Q CELLS' proprietary Q.ANTUM technology and the reinforced steel frame design combine numerous advantages for higher yields and an improved system performance to deliver lower installation cost and lower LCOE.
These advantages and LCOE make Hanwha’s solar module the ideal choice for utility scale applications.
In 2017 Hanwha Q CELLS was awarded the Top Brand PV Seal for its modules by EuPD Research (owned by Hoehner Research & Consulting Group) for the markets across Germany, France, Italy, Great Britain, and Australia. This win marks 4 consecutive times Hanwha Q CELLS has won the award in Europe and 2 times in a row in Australia.
EuPD analyzes how companies positively differentiate their products and services. It considers how the company’s offerings compare to other options on the market in terms of market penetration, and brand awareness.
