Solar Vehicles at Tipping Point

Natalie Fifield
Vehicle designers not yet considering solar bodywork are crazy. The tipping point is with us mainly because single-crystal silicon photovoltaics providing 50% more electricity per unit area is now viable even on the sides of vehicles. In all, three times as much electricity. Adoption is now so rapid that IDTechEx has rewritten its report within a year. "Solar Vehicles 2021-2041 2nd Edition" explains in 260 pages. Mostly, it covers the biggest potential - land vehicles - but it gives the latest learnings on water and in the air.
This presentation shares some of the research from the new IDTechEx report "Solar Vehicles 2021-2041 2nd Edition".
