Cadmium Telluride: Characteristics and advantages
Cadmium Telluride thin-film solar cells offer the advantage of easy production, short cycle production and the possibility of recycling the cell after its life span. CdTe films have many advantages, which has led to the industry becoming more concerned about them.
The Present State of the Photovoltaic Market
As the market for photovoltaics is maturing, there are many products that compete. There is no suspense in the battle for product of thin film and crystal silica. The cost of thin film products is falling and it will become difficult for them to be competitive. There won’t even be a market place for those products if they are not competitive. Longyan Energy’s thin-film modules have an average efficiency exceeding 12.5%. The average output power is over 80W. This compares to domestic crystalline silicon component efficiency which has been more than 17% in recent years. High-efficiency single crystal components have increased in efficiency by more than 20% over the past few years. The power output has also increased to 400W. The American thin-film manufacturer First Solar was the first to produce CdTe cells. The technology has been around for a while.
CdTe thinfilm cells have a lab efficiency above 22.1%. Its component efficiency was about 19.5%. First Solar holds a dominant position in thin film cadmium-telluride chemistry. China’s development of cadmium thin films is therefore a backward step.
Cadmium Telluride Films
Although development of cadmium Telluride Film is being hampered at the moment, this technology is one of most established thin-film power generator technologies. With a theoretical efficiency value of nearly 30% higher than that of crystalline silicon cell, an easier process than those cells, as well as advantages like flexibility and high temperatures performance, Cadmium telluride film has great future potential. To ensure that the domestic cadmium thin film industry continues to thrive, it’s important to fully understand the benefits and features of this thin film. Reduce production costs by doing so in an efficient manner, realizing localization of production equipment quickly and continuing to innovate to lower production costs. Second, the flexible nature of cadmium Telluride Film will allow it to be turned into alternative markets such as curtains walls, car roofs or charging kits.
