This sector is directed towards thin film photovoltaics, but does not include perovskite, organic, nuclear or photoelectrochemical technologies. Technologies that enhance a module’s performance, but are not directed toward the photovoltaic component, e.g., thermoelectric components that cool the cells by converting heat to energy, are classified as “Appliances”. Electrical elements within a cell are classified as “Electrode,” whereas electrical elements between cells are classified as “Module/Array.” Only documents published or issued from 2006 on are included.
