7th ITRPV: PV tracks 21 percent learning curve, 200 GW cumulative landmark passed in 2015

The seventh edition of the International Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) has confirmed that PV producers are continuing to track the historic solar learning curve of 21%. A range of wafer, cell and module production technologies will see multicrystalline PV modules being produced by 2026 with an efficiency of 310 W, in a 60-cell configuration.

DNV GL: long term reliability testing required for new materials

Renewable energy advisory DNG GL has called for more sophisticated reliability testing for new and novel materials being deployed in the renewable energy sector. Alternative semiconductor technology, such as perovskites, and innovative battery chemistries will be required if the Paris climate goals are to be met, the international advisory group argues.

Future PV: manufacturers poised for new technology investment cycle

As solar manufacturers return to profit an appetite for new technologies is growing. This was one of the key messages at this year’s Future PV Forum where PERC production at volume, new processes for III-V semiconductors and the rapid progress of perovskites were discussed by technologists, researchers and investors.

New approach greatly enhances pervoskite stability

UCLA researchers have developed a metal oxide sandwich perovskite cell that enhances the stability of the promising semiconductor by more than 10 times. The approach uses two metal oxide layers on either side of the perovskite material, protecting it rapid degradation when exposed to air.


Invisible solar Cloaking technology refracts light around metallization fingers Decreasing the width of PV metallization and interconnection fingers and busbars has long been exploited as an incremental pathway to higher cell and module efficiency. And German researchers now believe that light can be guided around the contacting structures, boosting efficiency. Researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute […]

Changing times, driving technology

EU PVSEC: From PV poster exhibition to towering trade show, the EU PVSEC has evolved over time. In 2016 it will take another bold step, becoming collocacted with Intersolar Europe in Munich. So it is no surprise in Hamburg this year there was the feeling of it being a last hurrah.

Australian firm pushes toward solar cell breakthrough

An Australian manufacturing innovator has taken the first steps towards commercializing a potentially cheaper and highly efficient solar cell, thanks to $449,000 support from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA).

Imec continues international leadership in photovoltaic research

At this week’s European PV Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC) nano-electronics research center imec will present achievements covering the broad spectrum of imec’s comprehensive photovoltaic-related research.
