Next-generation photovoltaics for economical clean energy

Outlet: To further reduce the cost of electricity from CdTe PV, Colorado State Univ. (CSU) researchers and partners at the Center for Next Generation Photovoltaics, an Industry-University Cooperative Research Center funded by the National Science Foundation, developed a performance roadmap (Figure 1). Progress since 2014 has been marked by three advances to the basic cell structure of CdTe PV.
