In this issue of EL Analysts, Dr. Harry Zervos of IDTechEx explores the advent of third generation solar cells and their potential for reaching even lower costs than silicon and thin film platforms due to the usage of abundant, low cost materials and simple manufacturing processes. A variety of factors enable the use of photovoltaics in new applications where rigid conventional cells would be unsuitable. Together with their cost reduction potential they will eventually offer solutions that can allow for further adoption of solar power generation. Zervos discusses these issues and explores how quickly this can be achieved.
