  • Record sales for solar PV cells in 2009

    Manufacturers of solar PV cells produced 10,700 MW of product around the world in 2009, setting a new record, according to a recent Eco-Economy Indicators Report by the Earth Policy Institute (Washington, DC). The 10,700 MW represented a 51% increase over 2008 production levels—less than the dramatic 89% growth in 2008 but still continuing the rapid industry growth since 2004. As ...

  • Towards high efficiency solar cells with new material

    While previous developed materials aimed at high efficiency used several junctions of indiumgallium- nitride (InGaN) with different proportions of indium and gallium side by side to cover a wider solar light spectrum, the newly developed solution treats a zincmanganese-tellurium (ZnMnTe) alloy in such a way that a single junction is able to have a photovoltaic response to almost the entire solar ...

  • A primogenius study on characterisation of c-Si solar cell

    The use of solar photovoltaic (PV) as distributed energy resources is increasingly being pursued as a supplement and alternative to conventional grid electricity. It has become an important source of energy because of its high reliability, requirement of very little maintenance and capability of generating power with no noise and emissions. Silicon solar cell as renewable energy resource has ...
