The future of photovoltaic modules has already shifted to glass - glass modules in 2mm.
Modules made with such ultra-clear glass, are far more efficient than traditional PV modules as there is less glass to "stop" the sunlight getting through to the cell.
The modules with thin glass - 2mm front and 2 mm back sheet glass - allow, in fact, higher yields compared to conventional glass for photovoltaic and are always maintaining the same performance and mechanical strength of 4 mm.
The efficiency of this glass is also far higher than conventional glass with 92.1% against 91.5 of the normal low-iron glass for solar. All these facts make 2mm BIPV modules more competitive than thicker modules.
