Tandem solar modules vs commercial crystalline
Researchers in France have tried to predict the competitiveness of tandem PV modules versus industrial crystalline items in 2030. Crystalline items will be 22-24% reliable in a years, according to the researchers, perhaps 25% if interdigitated back-contact heterojunction versions come to be mainstream. To contend, tandem devices will require to supply similar lifetime and also degradation prices, plus effectiveness of 30%.
