Organic and Dye-Sensitized Cell Photovoltaics: Materials, Applications and Opportunities -  2010, Nanomarkets Report

It has always been apparent that organic photovoltaics (OPV) would not easily match the conversion efficiencies of the inorganic thin-film PV technologies or conventional silicon PV. Nonetheless, OPV has been expected to easily compete with its rivals on cost. Unfortunately, for OPV, this assumption is now being challenged. The cost of OPV has not declined as quickly as many had hoped, while competitive technologies have seen more rapid than anticipated reductions in cost. It is no longer a foregone conclusion that OPV will be the cheapest PV technology.

Does this mean that the end of the road is near for OPV? We don't believe so. In Organic and Dye-Sensitized Cell Photovoltaics: Materials, Applications and Opportunities 2010, NanoMarkets analyzes the OPV industry and show which applications will preserve the OPV market as a growth business. OPV has some unique features that distinguish it from the inorganic TFPVs; features like extreme flexibility and ease of manufacturing that can allow it to enter some markets where the other PV technologies cannot.

In Organic and Dye-Sensitized Cell Photovoltaics: Materials, Applications and Opportunities 2010, NanoMarkets discusses how and where these distinguishing features can be turned in opportunities. Organic and Dye-Sensitized Cell Photovoltaics: Materials, Applications and Opportunities 2010 also examines where hybrid organic/inorganic PV, notably dye sensitized cells (DSCs), is making its mark; in building integrated PV and other areas.

Organic and Dye-Sensitized Cell Photovoltaics: Materials, Applications and Opportunities 2010 provides NanoMarkets' latest analysis and forecasts of the opportunities available in OPV and DSC markets. The focus for growth in the OPV/DSC business now look very different than predicted even a year ago. So Organic and Dye-Sensitized Cell Photovoltaics: Materials, Applications and Opportunities 2010is essential reading for any firm seeking to generate new business revenues in this industry.
