Demonstration of an industrially scalable process for the production of high efficiency perovskite photovoltaics
Conventional silicon photovoltaic (PV) efficiencies are reaching their maximum technical potential, with commercial yield improvements increasingly driven by marginal improvements in deployment costs in the field in commercial, residential, and utility applications. The opportunities for significant improvement in commercial returns are therefore now in alternative chemistries which can deliver higher conversion efficiencies while retaining cost advantages of mass manufacture methods and infrastructure.
This project will demonstrate prototype fabrication for thin-film perovskite PV cell and module technology by scaling-up, optimising and validating a patented process for perovskite thin-film coatings with the aim of creating a demonstration module using a first-generation reactor design capable of fulfilling industry requirements.
