Global solar electricity production in 2018 is around 600 TWh and it is estimated to reach 1000 TWh by 2020. Polycrystalline thin film solar cells such as CdTe and CIGS with an efficiency over 20% have been fabricated. Recently, a novel material, Perovskite, has demonstrated an efficiency higher than 20%, although it has some stability issues. The future of photovoltaics depends principally on solar cell efficiency, its cost and its stability. The costs of solar photovoltaic panels have come down to achieve close to grid parity. Since advances in the science and technology of photovoltaics are taking place at a fast pace, it is important to present the state of the art of Photovoltaics and its trends for the future. For this reason, Solar Energy will publish two special issues focused on “Recent Progress in Photovoltaics”. The Guest Editorial team is pleased to present the first issue as “Recent progress in Photovoltaics, Part 1”.
