Large-scale manufacture of thin film solar cells

1999-11-10 | Sector trends

As mentioned by Stephen Strong in the previous article, thin film solar cells present advantages over crystalline ones, as they are cheaper to produce. Yet their large-scale manufacture still poses a challenge, due to the high efficiency and low cost targets which still have to be met to render them commercially viable. This is the challenge currently being met by ZSW and Wrth Solar of Germany, which have developed the technology for a large-scale pilot production line.
