Solar Materials - Developments to Watch Going Forward!

Donald Rosato – Jan 12, 2017

Solar Materials Developments to Watch Going ForwardOver 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…
