Recent High Efficiency Crystalline Si Solar Cell Technology and Market Forecast (2006-2015)

DUBLIN, IRELAND -- (Marketwired) -- 03/04/14 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/xx4hbf/recent_high) has announced the addition of the "Recent High Efficiency Crystalline Si Solar Cell Technology and Market Forecast (2006 - 2015)" report to their offering.

So far, the biggest examples of high-efficiency crystalline solar cells have been Sunpower IBC (Interdigitated Back Contact) and Sanyo HIT (Hetero-junction with Intrinsic Thin-film). These cell concepts allow about 3-4% higher efficiency than typical crystalline solar cells, but require very expensive processes and wafers (n-type), resulting in more than 40 % higher prices. For this reason, those products are now unlikely to meet with an enthusiastic response in the PV (Photovoltaics) market flooded with low-cost products.

Attempting to use this market situation as a stepping stone, Chinese companies are making aggressive efforts to develop technologies allowing low-cost processes and employing wafers (p-type and multi-crystalline) such as selective emitters, MWT (Metallization Wrap-through), EWT (Emitter Wrap-through), and bifacial solar cells in an attempt to enhance the identity of 'China Brand' and increase their market shares.

When it comes to selective emitters, China Sunergy has engaged in small-scale production in their existing production line since 2007. As for MWT, Photovoltech it has produced on a small scale with their pilot line since 2003. As Suntech's pluto cell (selective emitter) and Yingli's bifacial cell entered the market in 2010 and Canadian Solar's MWT began to be deployed on a commercial scale in 2011, the high efficiency solar cell market showed explosive growth. As a result, the production of the high efficiency solar cell market recorded 2.9 GW in 2012 compared to 1GW in 2010 and is expected to reach 7.4 GW in 2015.

As c-Si solar cells is one of the biggest issues in the PV market, this report covers each element of technology for high efficiency and mass-production of high efficiency c-Si solar cells as well as market forecasts and analysis.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Hardware virtualization and cloud computing allowed us to increase resource utilization and increase our flexibility to respond to business demand. Docker Containers are the next quantum leap - Are they?! Databases always represented an additional set of challenges unique to running workloads requiring a maximum of I/O, network, CPU resources combined with data locality.
Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
