Photovoltaics R&D Progress in Japan

 Koichi Sakuta
Description: Data presented: World PV model production 1993- 2007, long-term roadmap for PV and R&D and introduction 2002-2030. Other topics discussed include, crystalline silicon cells, triple tandem solar cell, CIGS cell, flexible solar-cell substrates. Project targets of 10% efficiencies for single junction solar cells and over 25% efficiencies for Si-based triple junction and compound-semiconductor-based four-junction thin-film solar cells.
