  • Economics of Solar Generation

    This chapter discusses the comparative economics for off‐grid and grid‐linked applications. It then looks at the factors that drive solar system costs, and shows how prices developed after the heady $100+/W level inherited from the space industry. The measure used in the chapter, dollars per watt, is obtained simply by dividing the price1 in US dollars by the nominal output under standard test conditions in watts peak (Wp) of the solar cell, module, or system. To derive the total system cost, one can simply add the balance‐of‐system costs to the module. To obtain a target for the required cost of PV, people need to do is define the electricity price they have to compete with, and run this calculation backward to find the acceptable capital cost. The MUSIC FM study conducted for the European Commission in 1996 identified how solar module costs equivalent to about $0.70/W could be achieved.

  • Photovoltaic Research

    This chapter deals with research and development on hardware components of photovoltaic (PV) installations. It considers PV technology and the research activities devoted to improving its performance. The chapter focuses on the ways of increasing the efficiency of crystalline solar cells. Major PV companies, even those whose commercial business was in crystalline silicon, had substantial thin film research programs. Solar cells are much more tolerant and could successfully be made on many of these off‐grade wafers; so PV cell producers bought the semiconductor industry's rejects. Organic solar cells are often offered in flexible plastic packages. Flexible modules continue to feature in the market today, but mainly in minority consumer applications. The direction of travel suggests that heterojunctions and multijunctions are likely to form an increasingly important part of the sector as demand for more efficient solar cells develops.

  • How: Research and Technology

    This chapter looks at the efficiency of solar cells, both theoretical and actual, and the technical details of the standards against which they are tested. Air mass (AM), nominal operating cell temperature (NOCT), standard test conditions (STC) and 1 sun apply to the testing and qualification of solar cells, modules, and systems. To be accredited against the international standards discussed in the chapter, solar modules are rated in terms of watts peak under standard test conditions. They are then tested to ensure they are adequately strong, safe, and weatherproof, with a series of tests. The chapter lists tests that are typically performed and the results are used to validate ratings given by the manufacturer. For thin film modules, some additional tests are carried out: light soak; thermal annealing; and wet leakage current.

  • What Is Photovoltaics?

    This chapter discusses the birth history of photovoltaics (PVs). The first published observation of the photovoltaic effect was by a 19‐year‐old French scientist Alexandre‐Edmond Becquerel in 1839, possibly working with his father, the physicist Antoine Cesar. The US Signals Corps' William Cherry encouraged RCA to work on solar cells and in 1958 the Vanguard I satellite was the first practical application of PV, with less than 1 W of capacity. Later that year, Explorer III, Vanguard II, and Sputnik‐3 all carried PV‐powered systems. Solar cells are the core of a PV system, responsible for converting incoming light into electrical energy. Throughout the early PV era the cost of solar cells was relatively high, making solar modules the dominant element of a PV system. One approach to reducing system cost is to focus the incoming sunlight, using either mirrors or lenses.

  • The Next Generation

    This chapter reviews what the First Solar Generation had achieved by the end of the authors' time frame, as the photovoltaic (PV) sector got ready to pass the batten to the next generation. In the search for a balanced view of what the sector had so far achieved, it puts the First Solar Generation in the spotlight, being interviewed by the renowned hard‐nosed reporter A Sceptical World (ASW). Accordingly, the responses in this interview are based on the situation and information available at the end of the nineteenth century. The early driver of energy security remains extremely prominent. The major obstacle, high cost, is rapidly being overcome. The Second Solar Generation is already in the driving seat. The global PV industry is immensely larger than that which ended the previous century.

  • 10 Information: Displays and Memory Devices (1981–2007)

    Ovshinsky's most important energy technologies, thin-film solar cells and NiMH batteries, were major commercial successes. But his information technologies—which were more radically innovative and based on his most original discoveries, the switching effects he first observed in the early 1960s—failed to realize their full commercial potential for ECD. The flat panel displays that Ovshinsky had envisioned in 1968, and which ECD's subsidiary OIS (Optical Imaging Systems) contributed greatly to developing, ended up enriching other companies. Ovonic optical memories, such as rewritable CDs and DVDs, enjoyed a period of commercial success but again mostly profited others. And while many in the semiconductor industry recognized the enormous promise of Ovshinsky's electrical phase-change memory, it lay dormant for years because it was not considered commercially viable. Finally, his innovative cognitive computer, based on a further extension of his phase-change technology, never advanced beyond its research phase.

  • Terrestrial Solar Applications

    The main stand‐alone professional applications for solar power are in the transport, telecommunications, and petroleum sectors. Solar generation offers similar benefits in off‐grid rural communities, where it can replace expensive – and often dangerous ‐ energy sources such as kerosene and diesel. Off‐grid rural applications cover in principle everything for which a remote community might require electricity. The chapter highlights the following four applications that were most prevalent during our time frame: pumping, health clinics, lighting and rural community power. As solar power became cheaper and more reliable, it was able to replace primary batteries in portable products. The chapter deals primarily with household products. Power from solar installations on buildings can be supplied directly to the occupants, displacing electricity they would otherwise buy from the grid. National and international aid agencies and funders such as the World Bankqvsupported solar rural electrification projects in many parts of the developing world.

  • Solar Power Generation and Energy Storage

    This chapter presents the important features of solar photovoltaic (PV) generation and an overview of electrical storage technologies. The basic unit of a solar PV generation system is a solar cell, which is a P‐N junction diode. The power electronic converters used in solar systems are usually DC‐DC converters and DC‐AC converters. Either or both these converters may be necessary depending on whether the solar panel is connected to a DC load, an AC load or an AC grid. Most large conventional electrical grids can operate without significant storage of energy after it has been converted to electric energy. This is because the load‐generation balance is maintained in near real time through the control of the generated power, with frequency as the feedback signal. The chapter presents some important considerations for the evaluation of energy storage technologies and provides a brief outline of few of energy storage technologies.
