Crystalline-Silicon Solar Cells for the 21st Century

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The worldwide market share for crystalline-silicon solar cells has increased steadily in the last 10 years. In 1998, about 87% of the photovoltaic modules shipped worldwide are based on crystalline silicon. This dominance will likely continue into at least the first few years of the 21st century. The long-term growth of crystalline-silicon solar cells will depend on the development of low-cost polysilicon feedstock, silicon films, and advanced cell and module manufacturing processes.
