2.6.3.2 Photovoltaics

Among the various renewable energies, PV power generation is one of the top priorities in Japan. As seen in Figure 2.6, about half of the cumulative PV capacity introduced in the world is currently in Japan [4]. Figure 2.7 shows the long-term R&D and promotion road map towards 2030 prepared by NEDO (New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization) [5]. Our target is the
