Flexible Textile Photovoltaics: Application of New Generation in Tourism

Vlatko Cingoski, Biljana Petrevska


The paper presents some notable advances of a so-called new kind of materials, including textiles that exhibit photovoltaic (PV) qualities, i.e. they have the capacity to produce energy. In this line, a closer look is put on the mechanism of energy generation by means of solar cells that are used today. Hence, a brief elaboration is made on some of the newly developed 3G PV cells by presenting of what they are made of, their production process, work characteristics, mechanical characteristics, some of their positive and negative traits as materials and most common uses. Finally, the paper discusses some potential application of such PV cells in the hotel industry and in general in the tourism industry as energy sources for increasing energy efficiency and additional renewable and environmentally friendly energy resources.
