In solid state physics and related applied fields, the band gap is the energy difference between the top of the valence band and the bottom of the conduction band in insulators and semiconductors. It is often spelt "bandgap".
About half the cost of a PV system is due to the PV module itself. Presently, through two programs—Beyond-the-Horizon PV and Future-Generation PV—we are examining four new approaches to solar cells that promise—in the long term—to dramatically reduce the cost of this component in PV systems:
