Solar energy is the ultimate future energy source. It is a clean and sustainable source of energy that can provide a significant share of our energy needs and greenhouse gas emission reductions. At present, solar energy is much more expensive than conventional energy.
SE-Powerfoil aims at the development of roll-to-roll manufacturing technology for production of high-efficiency flexible photovoltaic (PV) modules. These photovoltaic modules allow for easy integration and installation leading to low-cost PV systems. This is essential to create mature, subsidy-independent markets for solar electricity, cost competitive with conventional electricity sources. The target is to develop 12 % efficient PV modules, with more than 20 years outdoor lifetime and manufacturing costs below 0.5 Euro/Wp.
Facts & figures
- In Europe, fitting the total surface of south-oriented roofs with photovoltaic equipment would enable full coverage of our electricity needs. This illustrates that photovoltaic cells could ultimately supply a substantial or even major fraction of our future electricity needs.
