New developments in materials mean that cheaper photovoltaic cells could be on the horizon

New developments in materials mean that cheaper photovoltaic cells could be on the horizon, helping to make electricity generated by solar cells more available, particularly in the developing world. Jack Stewart discusses these materials with Professor Henry Snaith of Oxford University in the UK, one of the pioneers in solar panels made of materials called perovskites, and solar energy expert Bernie Bulkin, former Chair of the UK Office for Renewable Energy.  Read More »

Future Solar Cost Reductions Hinge on Raising Solar Cell Efficiencies – Solar Industry Magazine

“What we are building is known as a tandem solar cell, and it is not a new concept,” says Chris Case, chief technology officer at Oxford PV. “What is different is the specific use of our perovskite materials as the wide bandgap solar absorber on top of a conventional silicon solar cell.”  Read More »

Perovskite Offers Shot at Cheaper Solar Energy – Wall Street Journal

"Oxford plans to license its recipe for a liquid form of perovskite to a chemical company and the process for using that liquid to make solar cells to glassmakers or cell makers, says Chris Case, chief technology officer of Oxford. The company expects products based on its technology to hit the market by 2017.’’  Read More »

Perovskite can boost solar cell performance by 20%

Oxford PV, a developer of innovative technologies and materials for solar applications, has introduced a new application for its thin-film perovskite technology. The breakthrough is designed to boost the conversion efficiency of existing silicon solar cells by 20 percent—the equivalent of a substantial 3 to 5 percent increase in absolute conversion efficiency terms.  Read More »

Lead free perovskite cells could speed up delivery of low cost solar power

A new breed of solar cells, developed at the University of Oxford by Professor Henry Snaith and his research team, could bring low cost electricity to the market sooner than predicted following the development of a perovskite cell which uses tin instead of lead. Read More »
