Pathways to terawatt solar photovoltaics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


There are multiple roadblocks and bottlenecks for the current commercial solar cell technologies to become a noticeable source of energy in our future energy mix. Roadblocks represent showstoppers which we have to remove in order to move forward. Bottlenecks are difficulties which we would like to overcome, but we can live with if push comes to shove. For terawatt-scale deployment of solar photovoltaics, resource limitations are roadblocks, and cost and efficiency are bottlenecks.
