A round robin test was carried out in four PV laboratories to compare accelerated lifetime testing. Twenty commercial non-packaged CIGS solar cells of similar performance were spread and exposed to damp heat con-ditions (85 ◦C and 85% RH) for approximately 500 h. Their JV performance was monitored during the damp heat exposure. After the test,...

Grootschalige toepassing van zonnecellen (photovoltaic cells, PV) in de gebouwde omgeving is gelimiteerd, mede omdat dakoppervlakken niet volledig benut kunnen worden ten gevolge van de ligging en de aanwezigheid van verstorende elementen als schoorstenen, dakkapellen, daklichten, etc. Het wegennet in Nederland biedt aanknopingspunten voor...

Electric vehicles are destined to become the main form of people transport in the near future. They are noise and emission free with the potential to offer completely zero-emission use when the energy used to charge their batteries is generated from renewable resources. On-board PV, PV that is integrated into the body of the car is a novel...

Capacitive touchscreens are increasingly widespread, featuring in mobile phones and tablets, as well as everyday objects such as cars and home appliances. As a result, the interfaces are uniquely placed to provide a means of communication in the era of the Internet of Everything. Here, we show that commercial touchscreens can be used as reader...

Partial shading of Cu(In,Ga)Se2 modules can lead to the formation of reverse bias induced wormlike defects. These wormlike defects act as local shunts and permanently decrease module output. A good understanding of the formation and propagationmechanisms of these defects is needed in order tomitigate the negative effects, or to prevent these...

The optical losses associated with sub-micron absorbers in CIGS solar cells can be reduced by light management techniques. 3-D optical modelling was used to optimize light in-coupling and internal rear reflectance in a 750-nm thick CIGS reference solar cell. At the front side, an effective medium approximation (EMA) approach for describing...

A full-size (1 × 5 m2) luminescent solar concentrator (LSC) has been constructed and the edge electric outputs from the attached photovoltaic cells monitored for a period of slightly over one year in the solar noise barrier (SONOB) “living lab” outdoor environment. The results of the edge electric output measurements were compared to ray-tracing...

Solar energy has the potential to play a central role in the future global energy system because of the scale of the solar resource, its predictability, and its ubiquitous nature. Global installed solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity exceeded 500 GW at the end of 2018, and an estimated additional 500 GW of PV capacity is projected to be installed by...

To fulfil (part of) the electricity demand of buildings, photovoltaics (PV) can be added to the building envelope (BAPV) or integrated in the building envelope (BIPV). To assess environmental impact, Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) tools are applied. In this study, an LCA method is developed for BIPV configurations. The LCA is applied on three...

A 3-D optical modelling was calibrated to calculate the light absorption and the total reflection of fabricated CIGS solar cells. Absorption losses at molybdenum (Mo) / CIGS interface were explained in terms of plasmonic waves. To quench these losses, we assumed the insertion of a lossless dielectric spacer between Mo and CIGS, whose optical...
