Organic solar cells are composed of abundant organic elements like carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, fluorine, oxygen, and sulphur. These raw materials are plentiful, inexpensive and can be easily recycled.
Although the organic photovoltaic (OPV) elements are lighter, more malleable, and less expensive to produce, their proficiency still falls behind that of other photovoltaic technologies, such as silicone, perovskite, and tandem solar cells. However, hopefully, this will change soon.
