Research and Markets: Next-Generation High Efficiency Crystalline Si Solar Cell Technology and Market Forecast (2008-2015)

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/fc8cf423/nextgeneration_hi) has announced the addition of the "Next-Generation High Efficiency Crystalline Si Solar Cell Technology and Market Forecast (2008-2015)" report to their offering.

The PV market had grown explosively with the annual growth rate of more than 75% since 2006 to 2010, propelled by subsidy packages of each government, letting the entire world realize the growth potential of the renewable energy industry. However, the rapid growth of the PV market in a short period time produced a side effect - a sharp increase in financial burden of each government due to the subsidies. Accordingly, as countries in and around Europe, the major PV markets, began to push policies concentrated on the rooftop with swinging cuts to subsidies, the PV industry is undergoing a change - a significant increase in demand for the high efficiency solar cells that allows small area for higher output at low cost.

The most typical examples of the high efficiency c-Si solar cell are IBC (Interdigitated Back Contact) of Sunpower and HIT(Hetero-junction with Intrinsic Thin-film) of Sanyo. Efficiency of these products is 3-4% higher than that of typical c-Si solar cells, but the prices are more than 40% higher. Thus it is not easy for those products to come into wide use, considering the on-going race for low-cost implementation in the PV market. Using this market situation as a stepping stone to strengthen the identity of 'China Brand' and increase their market share, Chinese companies are devoting their all strength to commercialization of low and middle priced high-efficiency Si solar cells such as Selective Emitter, MWT (Metallization Wrap-through), Bifacial before and after 2011.
