Together with the huge growth of the traditional
crystalline silicon (Si-x) PV manufacturers, other thin-film
solar cells have also emerged such as cadmium telluride
(CdTe) manufacturers. They are characterized by the fact
that they were created to reduce costs and by the scarcity of
silicon, from which the rest of the modules are made. Despite
they need more space to generate the same amount of energy
as crystalline modules, their price is supposed to be much
lower, and argue that they have a better performance at high
temperatures. However, real comparisons between the
outdoor performance of CdTe and Si-x modules have been
scarcely addressed in the literature. This paper provides a
comparison under real operating conditions of a CdTe
photovoltaic generator versus a conventional silicon
generator during 5 years of operation in a mid-latitude area,
identifying the causes of the differences observed., This work was supported in part by the Spanish State Research Agency (AEI) under grants PID2019-111262RBI00/AEI/10.13039/501100011033 and PID2019-110816RB-C21-I00/AEI/10.13039/501100011033
