In the meantime, solar technology is considered to be the cheapest source of energy and has thus also outstripped fossil fuels in economic terms. In addition, innovative solutions are entering the market, especially in the area of PV modules or in the form of bifacial or heterojunction cells and inverters. But which technologies will shape the industry in the short and medium term? What do they look like in concrete terms? And will we see a sustainable development on the European market?
We talk about this with Prof. Dr. Andreas Bett, Institute Director from Fraunhofer ISE in Freiburg.
