Description

Net zero goals requires decarbonization in every aspect of human life, and renewable energy production is essential. Flexible solar cells are a compelling proposition because of their wide variety of existing and novel application areas. In contrast to conventional, fixed-format solar panels often crafted from crystalline silicon, flexible solar cells can be bent, curved, and otherwise adapted to diverse surface geometries. Flexible solar cells are also much more lightweight, which enhances their utility in small-scale applications. The combination of these features provides new possibilities for integrating solar power into consumer electronics and wearables, fabrics, building integrated photovoltaics, outdoor and military equipment, and space-based applications.

This research study emphasizes the contemporary and emerging solar cell technologies that are revolutionizing the solar industry. Topics include the technology landscape that includes the categorization of contemporary and emerging flexible solar cell technologies, an analysis of typical substrate materials utilized in their fabrication, and a comparison of technologies based on parameters including power conversion efficiency, technology maturity, band gap range, and cost.

Various application areas for flexible solar cells are highlighted. A patent analysis, a look at the innovation landscape that highlights key commercial players in the domain, and a growth opportunity analysis that sheds light on the key enablers for adoption are included.
