The benefits of CNBM’s CdTe thin-film solar modules include.
- Cell high absorption: cadmium telluride is a direct-bandgap material with bandgap energy that can be tuned from 1.4 to 1.5 (eV), which is nearly optimal for converting sunlight into electricity using a single junction.
- CdTe technology is getting higher and higher– thanks to its high efficiency, low cost in capital and low cost in production for Wp. That means into higher returns on investment in the solar plant and in a quick way to reach the balance.
- Modules CdTe have the lowest energy payback time of all photovoltaic modules.
- Moreover, based on the life cycle, the CdTe PV module has the lowest CO2 emission value related to its manufacture, compared with other solar technologies.
