The Importance of Solar PV Materials Research.

The solar energy industry like most clean energy industries is very much driven by the technology of the solar energy converion devices. The efficiency and cost of a particular solar cell for example is dependant on the science and the choice of materials. 

New materials that are more flexible, efficient and cost effective will allow designers and engineers to start to incorporate solar cells into everything from car bodies and building windows to consumer products.

There are more types of solar pv materials being investigated than you might imagine. In the US, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory ( NREL ) produces a tracking chart that shows the types of solar pv materials, the recorded efficiency of a solar cell using that material, the date is was recorded and who the research entity was that set that record. This chart is recognized the world over by solar pv researchers and engineers.

  3. Hi,
    This is Praveen from India, I graduated from JNTU Hyderabad in Electrical and Electronics Engineering, and done my Masters in Nanotechnology.
    I am working as an Electrical Design Engineer,
    As I have a passion towards solar energy, I was planning to do a research on PV cells using Nanomaterial.
    I also attended a training programme on solar PV plant designing at steinbeis training centre Hyderabad.
    Please guide me to be a full-time learner or researcher on solar PV cells.
    Thanks,
    With kind Regards,
    Praveen Kumar Nalli
