Our class term project focused on solar photovoltaic (PV) technology. The purpose of the project was to answer the question: Who wins the battle: New Thin-film Technology or Low Cost Chips for Traditional Technology? During the project, a deep industry analysis was performed. Articles from journals such as Energy Policy, Progress InPh otovoltaics: Research And Applications, and Science, for example, were analyzed. Information from reports, laws, and regulations was gathered and thoroughly studied from many sources including: National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), International Energy Agency, and European Photovoltaic Industry Association.


This project is only available to students, faculty, and staff of Portland State University.
