Photovoltaics and the Environment - Pilkington

Photovoltaics and the Environment Photovoltaics, an environmentally friendly energy supply. Solar energy is the main source of energy on earth. Solar panels can harness this renewable energy directly and generate electricity or heat. Solar panels are environmentally friendly and reliable.

Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaics - Pilkington

Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaics Characteristics of crystalline silicon photovoltaics. Crystalline silicon photovoltaics is the most widely used photovoltaic technology. Crystalline silicon photovoltaics are modules built using crystalline silicon solar cells (c-Si), developed from the microelectronics technology industry.

Thin Film Photovoltaics - Pilkington

For BIPV applications, thin film photovoltaics can offer excellent aesthetics. Thin film photovoltaic modules also benefit from a relatively small drop in power output under partial shadowing when compared with crystalline silicon photovoltaics.This gives thin film photovoltaic modules greater design flexibility when integrated into the building envelope.
