ABSTRACT

Science & Tech Spotlight: Alternative Materials for Solar Cells   [open pdf - 506KB]

From the Document: "US generation of electricity from solar energy could grow six-fold by 2050. Alternatives to commonly used crystalline silicon cells may reduce material usage, manufacturing capital expenditures, and lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions. Many of these new materials, however, are under development, and more research is needed to better understand their potential."
