Abstract: Photovoltaics is one of the fastest growing industries at present. In the last years, the production of photlvoltaic cells has increased steadily by an average of 40% per year with an increasing tendency reaching an annual production volume exceeding 1.1GW in 2004. The research and market implementation programmes in Japan and Germany are major driving forces behind the growing demand for solar systems. In addition, the Russian Duma ratified the Kyoto Protocol in October 2004 and the Protocol went into force on 16 February 2005 and the Chinese Peoples congress passed a law to promote Renewable Energies on 28 February 2005. This recent developments will definitively have further impact on the future implementation of renewable energies and photovoltaics is a prime source to deliver it.
