Current state of the solar energy sector

The solar energy sector has witnessed unprecedented growth over the past decade. As the world grapples with the challenges of climate change and the urgent need for sustainable energy sources, solar power has emerged as a leading solution. The global solar market saw the past years an incredible increase in installations, signaling a strong shift towards renewable energy.

The importance of staying updated with the latest technologies

Staying updated with the latest technologies is vital for installers. As solar technology continuously improves, installers equipped with the newest knowledge can offer clients the most efficient energy solutions. This not only gives you a competitive edge in a saturated market but also ensures that installations are safe, compliant with current regulations, and cost-effective. 

Newer technologies can also be more adaptable to diverse environments, expanding the range of potential projects. Moreover, being well-versed in the latest advancements builds customer trust, as clients often rely on installers for informed recommendations. 

Technology

Perovskite solar cells

What is it? 

In a nutshell, perovskites are a class of materials that have a crystal structure of cuboid and diamond shapes. The name “perovskite” comes from the mineral perovskite, which is a calcium titanium oxide mineral. This technology isn’t available yet, but it will be when it overcomes its challenges.

Benefits

Perovskite has a bright future. Perovskite solar cells are a promising new technology that could potentially overthrow other technologies. Read more about the benefits of Perovskite in our blog “Why perovskite is considered the future of solar energy.

Challenges

There are still some challenges that need to be addressed before perovskites can be widely used. Some of the key challenges facing perovskites are mentioned in this blogpost: “Current limitations and challenges of perovskite solar cells.

TOPCon PV Modules

TOPCon solar panels are a type of solar panel that uses Tunnel Oxide Passivated Contact technology to improve the efficiency of solar cells. TOPCon solar panels have achieved efficiencies of up to 22.6%, which is higher than the efficiency of traditional solar panels. Its many advantages make it a leader in solar panel technology.

So, what are the benefits of TOPCon PV Modules? Read all about it in: How TOPCon enhances the efficiency of solar panels

Monocrystalline Solar Panels

What is it?

Monocrystalline solar cells are made from a single crystal of silicon. They make them more efficient than polycrystalline solar panels, which are made from multiple crystals of silicon. Monocrystalline panels have a sleek, black appearance. They have a lot of advantages. You can read about them in our blog: Advantages and disadvantages of monocrystalline solar panels.

Black solar panels are better than blue panels, not only because of their higher efficiency. But they also have a better performance in low-light conditions.
