The study considers a time period of 50 years and includes prospects on the PV production, percentage of electricity produced by PV, PV research and development status of different countries. Special emphasis has been made on the constraints to increase annual production and the competitiveness with other energy technologies. The study also includes analysis of the prospects of the different PV technologies (cells and modules).
