Materials for Solar Energy

Growing energy requirements need augmented efforts on developing materials and technologies that target energy generation, energy conversion and energy storage. For instance, recently the International solar alliance, consisting of over 120 countries, has been committed $1 trillion as investment and it's committed to reduce the prices of solar energy for remote and inaccessible communities. The World Bank is playing a significant role in mobilizing over US $1000 billion in investments which will be required by 2030. In 2013 thin-film technologies accounted for around 9 % of worldwide utilization, whereas 91 % by crystalline Si (mono-Si and multi-Si). With 5% of the general market, CdTe holds over half the thin-film market, 2 % of CIGS and amorphous Si. As per a study, prepared by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), recent solar modules are valued at $15 billion in reusable material by the year 2050. IRENA estimates that PV panel waste, comprised largely of glass, might total 78 million tonnes globally.
