Could be used for manufacturing thin film solar cells or Dye Sensitized
Could be used for manufacturing organic solar cells.
Could be used for manufacturing organic solar inks.
Could be used for manufacturing electrodes.
Could be used for manufacturing photovoltaic diodes.
Could be used for storing electrical energy. Photovoltaic systems with
battery storage are being used all over the world to power lights,
sensors, recording equipment, switches, appliances, telephones,
televisions, and event power tools.
The electricity produced in a photovoltaic system could be directly used
for generating DC current, which could further power water pumps for
irrigation and drinking wells.
Could be used in powering space ships and satellites.
Could be used in powering up the Hybrid Vehicles and Solar Vehicles.
Could be used for building photovoltaic power plants that can supply the
electricity needs of specified areas, industries, etc. Photovoltaic power
plants are easier and quicker to install than normal power plants.
Moreover, it is extremely easy to scale the photovoltaic power plants.
Photovoltaic systems promote the usage of renewable sources of
energy and play an important role in constructing green societies. Such
systems could be extremely useful in hybrid systems where other
renewable sources of energy could be used along with solar energy for
generating power consistently.
Some of the other areas of applications are:
o Building Integrated Photo Voltaics.
o Photovoltaics in portable electronics.
o Photovoltaics in Point of Purchase smart labels.
o Outdoor advertising and posters.
o Electronics in apparels and military.
o Mobile devices.
