The 2020s will be a decade with rapid solar module technology innovations, leading to significant increases in module power class, better performance and more versatile applications. This report examines three types of technologies that have the potential to improve solar module power class and performance: large wafer, n-type cells, and cell- and module-level techniques. The report finds that module technology innovations, in addition to hardware cost reduction, will be the quintessential driving force that propels the continuous reduction of solar LCOE in the new decade.
