Cost Boundary in Silicon Solar Panel

V.K.Sethi, Mukesh Pandey, and Priti Shukla

Abstract—Photovoltaic is a solar power technology that uses solar cells or solar photovoltaic arrays to convert light directly into electricity with no emission of dangerous gases and with least amount of industrials waste. Solar cells are a key technology in the drive toward cleaner energy production. Unfortunately, solar technology is not yet economically competitive and the cost of solar cells needs to be brought down. Growth of the photovoltaic (PV) market is still constrained by high initial capital costs of PV. One way to overcome this problem is to reduce the amount of expensive semiconductor material used. The materials cost and manufacturing cost of thin-film solar is much lower than wafer based and drops much faster than wafer based in large-scale manufacturing, but thin-film solar cells tend to have lower performance compared with conventional solar cells. Developments in PV technologies may lead to cheaper systems at the likely expense of life expectancy and efficiency. Cost boundaries are required for future PV technologies to compete effectively within the current PV market.[ B. Azzopardi, 1 ].Micro- and nano-enabled thin-film photovoltaics provide an attractive-and increasingly cost-competitive-clean-tech alternative to carbon-based energy solution.
