In this paper we describe the philosophy behind the concept of the “Smart PV-module” and 2 potential enabling technologies to realize this concept. The first is related to the embedding technology for cells and components in the a module concept specifically aimed at thin crystalline Si solar cells whereas the second concerns the development of a low-cost technology for reliable high-power components based on GaN-on-Si, enabling a potential size reduction in DC-DC or DC-AC convertors.
