Advanced encapsulation for photovoltaics: where are the opportunities?

Published: March 1, 2011

By Paul Markowitz, Senior Analyst, NanoMarkets LC

One of the most important ways in which inorganic thin-film photovoltaics (TFPV) and organic photovoltaics (OPV) can distinguish themselves from more conventional crystalline silicon photovoltaics (c-Si PV) in the marketplace is through the commercialization of flexible photovoltaic products using those technologies. But flexible photovoltaics brings with it some challenges of its own in terms of excluding air and moisture from the cells; challenges that translate into opportunities for suppliers of advanced encapsulation materials and systems as well as for TFPV and OPV firms.
