Scientists attain 28.7 percent effectiveness based upon perovskite solar cell
- Scientists from TNO, Imec and Eindhoven University of Technology, companions in the Netherlands-based Solliance research consortium, have actually established a transparent perovskite solar cell with near-infrared efficiency of 18.6 percent.
Incorporated with a crystalline silicon (c-Si) cell from Panasonic or a flexible CIGS (copper indium gallium diselenide) cell from Miasolé, record efficiencies of 28.7 percent and 27.0 percent were accomplished.
According to Solliance, the perovskite solar cell was integrated with different solar cells and various cell technologies, with results supposedly producing improvements of greater than 1.5 percent over previous performances achieved at Solliance. They "form the basis for the following stage of advancement together with upscaling," said Mehrdad Najafi of the Dutch study organization TNO. Solliance Solar Research is a partnership of research institutes and universities from the Netherlands, Belgium as well as Germany working in the area of thin-film photovoltaics.
