Abstract: Photovoltaics is one of the fastest growing industries at present. In the last years, the production of photovoltaic cells has increased steadily by an average of 40% per year with an increasing tendency reaching an annual production volume exceeding 1.1 GW in 2004. This development is driven not only by the progress in materials and processing technology, but by market introduction programmes in many countries around the world. The growth is mainly realised by an increase of manufacturing capacities based on the technology of crystalline, single junction devices. Consistent with the time needed for any major change in the energy infrastructure, another 20 to 30 years of sustained and aggressive growth will be required for photovoltaics to substitute a significant share of the conventional energy sources.
