The TUV SUD global pv business department director recently said that as the third generation of photovoltaic cells and 3D solar panels technology research breakthroughs, the utilization rate of solar energy will greatly enhance.
Thenew generation of technology has three advantages:
- Its efficiency will be the first generation and second generation panels’ 2~3 times;
- It uses lower prices for high-throughput printing and coating technique in the manufacture process, and in the manufacturing process, low energy consumption and low equipment investment. And without the clean indoor environment the first & second generation need.
- Good flexibility, only a few microns thickness, high transparenc, can through the screen printing in the window, so that the panels can be directly installed in the buildings, that means the buildings and bridges can be turned into a large power plant in the future.
In addition, 3D solar panel technology will greatly enhance the utilization rate of solar energy, The biggest difference is that 3D solar panels can be captured to almost sunshine irradiated on the solar panels. But, before the 3D panels’ large-scale production, it’s production technology still need further optimization.
