[Solar] PSU: Applying Tandem Design to Thin-Film PV Cells Could Achieve an Efficiency of 34.45%

Although thin-film PV cells have a long history of development and market presence, they are not as widely adopted as crystalline silicon PV cells. On one hand, thin-film cells have several significant advantages such as having a flexible substrate, being very light in weight, and reaching a high conversion efficiency. On the other hand, they are much more costly to manufacture than crystalline silicon cells. Consequently, low cost-performance ratio remains a major constraint to the market growth of the thin-film technology....  more


[Solar] India Develops Flexible Module formed with Organic Paper Solar Substrate for Power Generation

The principle of power generation for solar panels is to convert solar radiation into electricity, so will it be possible to generate power using indoor lighting? Indian scientists have recently developed an organic solar module made with a paper-based substrate that possesses both cost and environmental advantages, and is able to achieve a power density of 12µW/cm2 under 1000 lux, which makes it possible in providing power for small electronic equipment in the future....  more
