While perovskite solar cells have been the fastest advancing PV technology, what else is needed to accelerate the deployment of this technology in the real world? Why do demonstrated modules have much lower efficiencies than world record cells on sub-millimetre size? Can perovskite solar cell last long? How long? What will be the most cost-effective method for manufacturing on large scale? Can we make solar cell cool when they are design integrated? Join Anita Ho-Baillie’s group working with industry partners to accelerate the progress of perovskite solar cell technology providing students with exciting opportunities creating new inventions for clean energy technology.
