The photovoltaic (PV) industry needs to provide power generation products that can compete with both conventional energy sources and other renewable sources of energy. An international technology roadmap can help to identify trends and to define requirements for any necessary improvements. 

The aim of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaic (ITRPV) is to inform suppliers and customers about anticipated technology trends in the field of crystalline silicon (c-Si) photovoltaics and to stimulate discussion on required improvements and standards. The objective of the roadmap is not to recommend detailed technical solutions for identified areas in need of improvement, but instead to emphasize to the PV community the need for improvement and to encourage the development of comprehensive solutions.
