Dr. Michael Harr, CTO

img_management_harrA combination of the highest standard German Engineering with Chinese production methods and cooperation with leading machine construction companies enables us to provide solar factories with the highest technical standard and attractive prices.

It’s what we dreamed of as pioneers of thin film cadmium telluride modules decades ago. Now, we’ve perfected our CdTe technology and a production process that allows it to achieve its full potential.

Transforming the world’s energy supply is a global task. Our technology and backing from one of the world’s largest building materials firms positions us as a truly global provider. We hope you’ll join us in accomplishing this important work.


CTF Solar is participating in projects together with Fraunhofer FEP. The projects are being conducted with funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) awarded to the German state of Saxony. One of the projects seeks to further decrease the already low energy and material input required for the production of CdTe solar cells to reduce the environmental impact of solar cell production.
