出版日期: 2014年02月26日 內容資訊: 英文 100 Pages
簡介

對於再生能源技術的全球性關心年年提高,雖然可見到一部分的不安和重組,但依然投入很大的努力和資金於各種技術的研究開發。特別是太陽能發電,由於再生能源來源未來能持續利用,進行了大金額的投資,以能確保充分日照的地區為中心,預測今後也將施行大規模的企劃。現在生產的太陽能發電模組的大部分採用了矽晶型(c-Si)技術,不過一方面推進關聯未來的新技術開發,替代太陽能電池也是那種技術之一。所謂替代太陽能電池,主要是使用矽晶型以外的材料,利用光伏效應產生電力的技術,為了與結合PN和利用半導體技術的傳統的太陽能電池區別,也被稱作第2代或的第3代太陽能發電技術。替代太陽能電池,由於在轉換效率、重量、機器的彈性、強度等各點比傳統的技術出色,能對應各種新用途,預期可降低生產成本。

本報告提供各種非矽晶型太陽能電池技術焦點、市場趨勢和全球市場的關聯性、重要性等闡明、帶給生產和普及、銷售流通影響的各種要素分析、各地區市場趨勢,再加上主要企業的簡介,為您概述為以下內容。

The global market for alternative solar technologies was valued at $12.6 billion in 2012. This market is estimated to grow to more than $22.8 billion by the end of 2018 from a value of about $13.9 billion in 2013, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.5% for the five-year period, 2013 to 2018.

This report provides:

  • Quantification and explanation of market trends in the various non-crystalline silicon solar cell technologies and their relation and importance to global markets.
  • Discussion of factors affecting production, acceptance and adoption, and sales and distribution of non-crystalline silicon solar cell technology.
  • A presentation of factors such as governmental or environmental factors spurring or inhibiting the market.
  • Identification of major players in the market such as research organizations and end-users.

STUDY BACKGROUND

Worldwide interest in renewable energy technologies continues to see strong growth each year, with great amounts of effort and financial resources dedicated to research and development (R&D) of many different technologies. While the renewable energies industry has seen turbulence and consolidation globally over recent years due to myriad external and internal factors, the outlook remains positive - especially so for alternative solar energy technology applications.

Solar energy technologies continue to see strong investment due to the promise of a continually renewable source of energy from our own sun. Predictability of annual and seasonal cloud cover in most parts of the world, strong solar irradiance in many regions of the world, and the associated regular cash flows that solar projects can thus produce in these areas are some of the attractive features of market-competitive solar technology.

Much of the general public is familiar at a basic level with the most well-known solar energy application: photovoltaic (PV) modules. A solar PV module is a collection of solar PV cells, and is typically constructed of a hard substrate with solar cells on top and a layer of glass capping the solar cells.

The bulk of solar PV cells and modules that are currently produced on a global scale are of the crystalline silicon (abbreviated as c-Si; may be either monocrystalline or polycrystalline) cell type technology. The great majority - approximately 85% - of the nearly 30 gigawatts-peak (GWp) of annual (2012) solar PV production represents c-Si technologies, and more than 100 GW of solar PV generative capacity installed worldwide.

There is, however, a small but significant subset of alternative technologies within the broader solar PV segment whose use increases each year, and which many see as the future of the solar PV industries and markets. These are a set of diverse technologies whose market-specific landscapes are analyzed in this report and which meet both of the following criteria:

  • Use as their primary material something other than crystalline silicon.
  • Produce electric energy by harnessing the photovoltaic effect.

Such technologies are often referred to as second- and third-generation photovoltaics. This terminology is used to distinguish them from so-called first-generation photovoltaics, which utilize pn junctions and a semiconductor (typically crystalline silicon); this same terminology will be used in this report.

Alternative solar technologies offer the prospect of higher conversion efficiencies, lighter weight, new applications, greater mechanical flexibility and less fragility. They also offer the potential for significantly lower production costs that may be highly competitive with grid electricity produced through traditional generative sources such as carbon-based fuels, as well as with other types of more traditional solar PV technologies such as mono- and polycrystalline silicon modules.

A broad cross-section of researchers and field experts around the world expect that many alternative solar technologies will surpass traditional c-Si PV technologies in their pricing competitiveness and physical as well as market flexibility and adaptability. This is especially true for those technologies considered “third-generation photovoltaics” (organic/plastic photovoltaics, multi-junction photo-voltaics, and concentrating photovoltaics).

  • Monocrystalline silicon photovoltaics.
  • Polycrystalline silicon photovoltaics.
  • Solar thermal technologies.
  • Concentrating solar power (as differentiated from concentrating photo-voltaics).
