Feature

THE FUTURE OF RENEWABLE ENERGY GENERATION: Photovoltaic Materials

refurbish MHP solar cells are quite advanced and
include promising laboratory-scale demonstrations of
deconstruction, separation, and reconstruction [3032]. This points to a path similar to that of CdTe and
stands in stark contrast to Si-based devices.
The stability challenge also requires that the range of
materials that need to be considered, evaluated, and
developed extend beyond the absorber. Critical needs
include structural composites for PV racking, glass for
packaging, and materials to enable their integration
into a stable perovskite module that can readily be
recycled, refurbished and whose components can be
reused. There is little doubt that the future definition
of PV materials will be extended by consideration of
these aspects of PV systems to enable sustainability
and lower cost.
