There are a large number of solar cell manufacturing companies involved in the UNSW Advanced Hydrogenation Technology where hydrogen is introduced into the solar cell in order to eliminate defects and other forms of recombination.

Controlling the charge state of introduced hydrogen within the silicon solar cell is key to being able to eliminate defects and thus allow manufactures to use lower grade, less expensive, silicon to make high performance solar cells. Additionally, solar cells that have been treated with controlled charge state hydrogen generate significantly more energy throughout their lifetime because of the minimisation of degradation processes.
