Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Glass converts solar energy into electric energy. The glass sandwiches the solar cells and provide protection against environmental elements such as dust, moisture, and snow. Solar photovoltaic glass is increasingly being used for building integrated photovoltaics. The PV glass is integrated into the building in the form of windows, roof panels, and building panels. Potential applications in smartphones, vehicles, and greenhouses may boost market in the near future. Moreover, reducing the carbon footprint and meeting targets of Paris Climate Agreement has resulted in government initiatives for solar energy. High growth rates are expected in countries which are lacking in large hydrocarbon reserves. The major challenge is the high capital expenditure in setting up of solar energy equipment. Also, availability of high quality solar photovoltaic glass is a detrimental factor to market growth.
Solar Photovoltaic Glass Market Taxonomy
On the basis of Modules, the solar photovoltaic glass market is segmented as-
On the basis of type of glass, the solar photovoltaic glass market is segmented as-
On the basis of application, the solar photovoltaic glass market is segmented as-
Anti-reflective coating reduces reflection which in turn increases the amount of light absorbed by the solar cells, which resulted in the increased energy production. TCO coated glass optimizes light transmission into the solar modules. Tempered Glass is strongest glass, made by heating glass to 600OC and then cooling it with airflow.
Solar PV Glasses are used in both residential and non-residential applications. However, high installation cost involved with solar photovoltaic glass is further hindering the growth of solar photovoltaic glass market. Furthermore, R&D and innovation will help drive down solar PV glass production costs which will augment market growth.
