The Future of Solar Energy: 2nd Post… Plastics
- Dec 20, 2022 3:46 pm GMT
Roughly a year ago I posted the paper named “State-of-the Art PV Panels: “One word… plastics.” That post explored various options for solar modules that overcame several disadvantages of existing module designs.
Organic photovoltaics (OPVs) are currently poised to assume this role. Although these currently have some issues with efficiency, they are improving this metric over time, and they have cost advantages, are more easily recycled than existing silicon-based designs, are light, and flexible.
In this post I will review OPVs and their advantages over other PV designs.

As I started considering the IEEE Spectrum article used as a source for a future article, I found a lot to like. First of all, it described in detail the changes we (our societies) must make to implement Electric Vehicles, but also explored the..
