The research activities of the photovoltaic industry in Germany are now available to an international audience. The film “Solar power research in Germany” highlights the innovative strengths of the solar industry in Germany by illustrating three projects carried out under the initiative “R&D for PV”.

R&D in PV

The video contains a broad overview on the research topics and prospects concerning new products coming up soon in the European PV markets. New solutions dawn at the horizon of technical progress in PV – even for foggy Scotland. Self-consumption is driving the markets, and new devices and systems integrate PV, storage systems and grid integration. New solar cells with passivated emitters on the rear (Perc) allow higher yield without major changes in existing production lines. (HS)
