Hevel's R&D center in 2015 launched its own program aiming to improve solar cell efficiency and to reduce production cost of solar modules. By the end of the year the company achieved a 22.8% efficiency mark for solar cells and average nominal power of 60-cell PV modules increased from 280 to 320 W.
Company's plan to extension manufacturing facility corresponds with Russian Government's goal to commission 1.7 GW of PV by 2024.
Hevel's current pipeline exceeds 400 MW including 174 MW already commissioned by the end of 2017.

Hevel Group (controlled by Renova Group, founded in 2009) is Russia's biggest integrated company in photovoltaics. The company comprises a production unit (the solar module production factory in Novocheboksarsk, the Chuvash Republic), the development unit (design and construction of solar power plants, with a portfolio of next years' projects for the capacity of more than 434 MW) and the R&D Center for Thin-Film Technologies in Energetics (Saint-Petersburg), the only specialized research and development center for photovoltaics in Russia.
