Solar Materials - Developments to Watch Going Forward!
Jan 12, 2017
Over the past fifteen years, Solar or Photovoltaic (PV) technology has progressed from a small, splintered market to a major source of electricity. After hydroelectric and wind power, solar is the third most significant source of renewable energy.
Cumulative photovoltaic capacity now supplies 2% of global electricity demand. Electronic materials have greater opportunities in photovoltaic development where organic PV cell efficiency is being advanced.
This article deals with some of the emerging solar/PV electronic material technologies including:
- PBT-OP to increase cell efficacy by 30%
- Inverse opal structure to increase light-trapping capability
- Multilayer backsheet for CSi-based PV modules
- And more…
Read on and discover more about these solar/photovoltaic electronic material technologies & their role in increasing cell efficiency…
