Welcome to the ITRPV!
Thank you for visiting the official ITRPV website. This page is the communication platform for all related work and activities to create a common Roadmap for crystalline silicon photovotlaics.
We believe that future needs should drive today's development and strategies of both, the PV cell- and module manufacturers as well as suppliers of equipment, materials and services. The International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaic (ITRPV) is created and regularly updated by the globally leading manufacturers of crystalline silicon (c-Si) products (wafer, cell, module). The objective of the ITPRV is to ensure constant cost reduction and efficiency increase through technology advancements in the performance of c-Si products.
Benefits generated through the ITRPV:
- Common path towards a sustainable PV market
- A guideline for the entire crystalline silicon PV supply chain
- Basis for cooperation among the supply chain
- Guideline for material + equipment suppliers
- Targets for R&D institues
- Source for PV standardization
