Energy Yield of ‘cheap’ Solar Panels Raised from 7 to 9 Percent

Popular Articles

Researchers from TU Delft have shown how the energy yield of relatively cheap solar panels, made of amorphous silicon, can be considerably raised: from around 7 percent to 9 percent. Gijs van Elzakker will obtain his PhD on this subject from TU Delft on July 6.

Amorphous

Researcher Gijs van Elzakker focused on solar panels that are made from so-called amorphous silicon, as opposed to the more commonly used crystalline silicon. Amorphous silicon has the great advantage that the solar panels can be produced relatively cheaply using a very thin layer of silicon (thin film solar cells).
