Abstract: Renewable and sustainable energy generation technologies have been in the forefront due to concerns related to environment and fossil fuel costs. Photovoltaics technology have attracted an increasing interest in the past decade and have been shown as a feasible renewable power generation technology.[1] Thin film flexible photovoltaics are paving the way to lowcostelectricity. Solar cells are deposited over flexible substrate via means of high throughput technologies to have funds for lightweight solar modules that can be includedinto or on diverse surfaces. [3] Due to the increasing demands of the electricity it is very important to make the buildings energy efficient, which uses less electricity and mainly runs on the renewable source of energy. Invention of the solar flexible panels have increasingly affected the power generation of the tensile structures, making it energy efficient. Combination of both the thin film of solar andthe structural fabric of tensile structure will result in an efficient way of the power generation. This paper will focus on all the properties of the solar flexible panels and how it is useful for energy generation, the different ways and technologies for using the panels in a tensile structure. The paper will focus on whether the panels can be used as a replacement for structural fabric inatensile structure.
