Webinar: perovskites: the energy mainstream of the thirties coming out of the lab soon
Photovoltaic (PV) electric energy generation is the fastest growing renewable energy source. To improve the efficiency of silicon PV, which is now dominating the PV market, perovskites have a pivotal role to play. They can be processed into thin, light, semitransparent modules that can achieve a high power conversion efficiency, are inexpensive to produce, and have a high absorption efficiency for sunlight. Hence, an ideal match to get to more sustainable, cheaper and more efficient solar panels.
Perovskites are a promising material system to make high-performance solar cells. They can be processed into thin, light, semitransparent modules that can achieve a high power conversion efficiency, are inexpensive to produce, and have a high absorption efficiency for sunlight. Because they can be made semitransparent, perovskite solar cells and modules can also be used on top of silicon solar cells. These tandem cells have a huge potential to boost the efficiency of solar panels and might even prove to be the most cost-effective approach to further improve the efficiency of photovoltaics. In this webinar Tom Aernouts (EnergyVille/imec) and Bart Vermang (EnergyVille/UHasselt) introduce you to the record efficiencies that have already been accomplished with tandem cells and highlight the further roll-out and development of tandem cells in for example cars, building materials, etc.
