PEROVSKITE SOLAR CELLS

Parallel to the development of its kesterite counterpart CZTS, our team has been setting records for perovskite solar cells for years. In 2016, we achieved the highest PCE to date on the largest cell by surface area and we have been pushing the boundaries of the material design ever since. Perovskite devices are cheap, flexible and simple to manufacture which makes them an incredibly exciting prospect in the evolution of solar power. Incredibly, by improving the solution deposition process, we are developing methods to spray-coat surfaces with solar cells. Currently, we are using these methods to build tandem perovskite-silicon cells, however, it could pave the way to cover entire buildings in solar cells! Moreover, the team are working on increasing the stability of planar structure perovskite cells, as well as upscaling the manufacturing process for industry-level production.
