Third generation photovoltaic (PV) cells for eco-efficient buildings and other applications

L.A. Lamont,     Mott MacDonald Ltd, UK

Abstract:

Solar technology has developed from a basic idea to a technology that could help support the world’s increasing energy requirements. Currently, first and second generation panels are used widely in industry but do not offer the most efficient and cost effective product. It is hoped that the third generation can overcome these problems, either through multi-junction devices or the use of different materials/technologies. One area of interest is nanotechnology as this is something that could be used in photovoltaic panels and provide the higher efficiency levels demanded by industry at a reasonable ...
