Photovoltaic systems (PVs) produce electricity directly from solar radiation and are becoming more widespread as their advantages become apparent. This new guide provides an overview of how PVs work and how they are incorporated in the design of buildings, giving designers a good idea of the variety and flexibility of PVs and of their design and aesthetic potential. Seven contemporary case studies illustrate the use and application of photovoltaic systems.

This book presents new concepts for a next generation of PV. Among these concepts are: Multijunction solar cells, multiple excitation solar cells (or how to take benefit of high energy photons for the creation of more than one electron hole-pair), intermediate band solar cells (or how to take advantage of below band-gap energy photons) and related technologies (for quantum dots, nitrides, thin films), advanced light management approaches (plasmonics). Written by world-class experts in next generation photovoltaics this book is an essential reference guide accessible to both beginners and experts working with solar cell technology. The book deeply analyzes the current state-of-the-art of the new photovoltaic approaches and outlines the implementation paths of these advanced devices. Topics addressed range from the fundamentals to the description of state-of-the-art of the new types of solar cells.

Photovoltaics, the direct conversion of sunlight to electricity, is now the fastest growing technology for electricity generation. Present "first generation" products use the same silicon wafers as in microelectronics. "Second generation" thin-films, now entering the market, have the potential to greatly improve the economics by eliminating material costs. Martin Green, one of the world’s foremost photovoltaic researchers, argues in this book that "second generation" photovoltaics will eventually reach its own material cost constraints, engendering a "third generation" of high performance thin-films. The book explores, self-consistently, the energy conversion potential of advanced approaches for improving photovoltaic performance and outlines possible implementation paths.

Photovoltaic cells provide clean, reversible electrical power from the sun. Made from semiconductors, they are durable, silent in operation and free of polluting emissions. In this book, experts from all sectors of the PV community — materials scientists, physicists, production engineers, economists and environmentalists — give their critical appraisals of where the technology is now and what its prospects are. Contents:The Past and Present (M D Archer)Device Physics of Silicon Solar Cells (J O Schumacher & W Wettling)Principles of Cell Design (J Poortmans et al.)Crystalline Silicon Solar Cells (M A Green)Amorphous Silicon Solar Cells (C R Wronski & D E Carlson)Cadmium Telluride Solar Cells (D Bonnet)Cu(In,Ga)Se2 Solar Cells (U Rau & H W Schock)Super-High Efficiency III-V Tandem and Multijunction Cells (M Yamaguchi)Organic Photovoltaic Devices (J J M Halls & R H Friend)Quantum Well Solar Cells (J Nelson)Thermophotovoltaic Generation of Electricity (T J Coutts)Concentrator Cells and Systems (A Luque)Cells and Systems for Space Applications (C M Hardingham)Storage of Electrical Energy (R M Dell)Photovoltaic Modules, Systems and Applications (N M Pearsall & R Hill)The Photovoltaic Business: Manufacturers and Markets (B McNelis)The Economics of Photovoltaic Technologies (D Anderson)The Outlook for PV in the 21st Century (E H Lysen & B Yordi) Readership: Physicists, chemists and engineers. Keywords:Electricity;Photovoltaics;Cadmium;Solar CellsReviews:“… is an excellent resource for its intended readership of students, scientists and technologists working in the area … it is well indexed, and includes a handy list of useful web and library references. At the very least, the book deserves a place in the library of every research institution and company working on renewable energy.”Nature “With a broad range of coverage, many references in each chapter, and an appendix listing useful quantities, factors and symbols, this book would be an excellent reference source for any one working in the field of photovoltaics.”IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine “It is timely, up-to-date and a very comprehensive work. The chapters are written by leading experts in their field who are able to communicate the technology and their enthusiasm … Photovoltaic R&D is a multi-disciplinary activity, and most chapters should be accessible to advanced undergraduate students, postgraduates and researchers with a wide range of backgrounds. It can be recommended to those starting a PhD in the area and to existing researchers in other fields who wish to find out what all the excitement is about.”Contemporary Physics
