Thin-film PV (TFPV) technology represents a growing engaging opportunity for the PV industry development thanks to its lower production costs, better performances under high temperature, easy production process and smaller environmental footprint. The recent successes of TFPV and announcements are making it one of the key growing technologies.
In addition, the physical and design flexibility, together with its lightweight, makes the TFPV technology ideal for new applications such as vehicle integrated PV (VIPV) and some emerging segments in the built environment which are poised to become a new source of growth for PV. Finally, it can also play a fundamental role in the circular economy by providing a secondary use for mining by-products, rather than digging for new resources.
SOLARUNITED intends to tie up the existing thin film deposition competence and know-how among equipment manufacturers, and promote its global development.
The NEW born Thin Film PV Manufacturing (TFPV) Working Group aims at:
The first Thin Film PV Manufacturing (TFPV) Workshop took place in the VON ARDENNE Office in Dresden (Germany), 26 June 2018, to kick off the project:
