Focusing on technology, the Photovoltaics International journal is specifically designed for the PV supply chain, including materials, components, equipment, manufacturing and large-scale utility installation. This in-print business-to-business publication influences the purchasing decisions of PV manufacturers, energy utilities and integrators by associating solution providers with high quality and independent technical papers.
The thirty-fourth issue of Photovoltaics International brings you insights into the latest in-depth research from the world of solar R&D. From Solar Intelligence, find out the Silicon Module Super League in 2017 and 2018: a data-driven, bottom-up analysis of technology and capacity forecasts. Also covering cu-plated electrodes with laser contact opening on n-type crystalline silicon solar cells, high-performance screen-printable pastes for HJT cells, ultrafast lifetime regeneration of boron-doped Czochralski-silicon in an industrial belt-line furnace, use of a perovskite layer to boost the efficiency of CIGS modules and improving the efficiency of PV modules using glass reflective strips.
The PV-Tech Power journal is focused on the challenges and solutions concerned with designing, building and operating commercial & utility scale PV power plants. It addresses technology and business issues which impact on reducing LCOE and protecting ROI.
Middle East and North Africa special edition - The region has huge potential for both utility and rooftop solar. The gradual removal of fossil fuel subsidies for power generation, the falling cost of finance and, of course, improving project performance have tipped the balance of the economics for PV in the region. Other highlights include recent market developments in Spain and Chile as well as the hottest emerging markets, increasing use of mobile PV testing facilities, analysis of whether BIPV was set for a rebirth, labour saving in O&M, tax equity funding in the US, microgrids, encapsulants and the 1500V revolution.
