OPV Manufacturers Face Challenges


The OPV industry is making gains, but some significant hurdles remain.


By David Savastano, Editor

The market for organic photovoltaics (OPV) has shown some growth in recent years, with particular interest being paid to the potential for building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) and off-grid power charging systems. However, there are hurdles to be overcome; the greatest challenges facing OPV developers remain lifetime and efficiency. Overcoming these issues will be the key to the ultimate widespread commercialization of OPVs.
