Economic issues are the driving forces behind PV adoption. Even technological advances are measured against their impacts on cost per watt, levelized cost of energy (LCOE), and total cost of ownership for energy (TCOe™). This sixth paper in a series covering business analysis for PV processes looks at two approaches to manufacturing thin-film copper-indium-gallium-diselenide (CIGS) PV – sputtering and co-evaporation – and their potential areas for cost improvement.
