Financial return for government support of large-scale thin-film solarnext term photovoltaic manufacturing in Canada
As the Ontario government has recognized that solar photovoltaic (PV) energy conversion is a solution to satisfying energy demands while reducing the adverse anthropogenic impacts on the global environment that compromise social welfare, it has begun to generate policy to support financial incentives for PV. This paper provides a financial analysis for investment in a 1 GW per year turnkey amorphous silicon PV manufacturing plant.
GaAs photovoltaics and optoelectronics using releasable multilayer epitaxial assemblies
Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) is more advantageous over silicon for many applications, but is often criticized for its high cost. Growing large, high quality wafers of GaAs and integrating on other substrates is difficult and expensive. Article below describes a method of using films of GaAs or AlGaAs grown in thick, multilayer epitaxial assemblies and then separating from each other and distributing on foreign substrates by printing, in a manner that also allows the wafer to be reused for additional growths.
Important Photovoltaic Solar Cell Research Projects at Canadian Universities
Research and Development in Photovoltaic Solar Cell is continually increasing in Canada, with several highly funded projects focusing on high efficiency and low cost Solar Cell devices. Here is a list of a few research projects currently being pursued at leading Canadian Universities
