These crystalline technologies (c-Si) show module efficiencies between 12 and 18% and have a total market share of 95%. , CIS and CdTe – add up to the remaining 1% market share. 3%, the cost of the different technologies can be compared on relative terms. Modules with mainstream multicrystalline technology come to 111%, monocrystalline in conventional processing end up at 116%. 40 W. Hoffmann and L. Waldmann Fig. 9. 5% absolute to higher efficiencies, hence the same relative cost comparison applies.

Translated to a time scheme that assumes a growth rate of 25% for the PV sector, the 20% price experience curve leads us to estimate at least a 5% price decrease per year. That is to halve the generation cost every 12 years and, as a side effect, produce clean electricity without fuel cost. Solar thermal power plants today are calculated to have electricity generating costs at 17 ct€/kWh falling to 3 ct€ according to existing production and research-and-development roadmaps in this industry. At this point we want to appeal to the energy sector not to underesti- 38 W.
