The perovskite-silicon tandem
Our solid state, thin film perovskite solar cell technology is designed to enhance the existing $183 Billion photovoltaic industry. When built on top of conventional 156 mm x 156 mm silicon solar cells, in a tandem configuration, the resulting perovskite-silicon tandem solar cells show highly improved efficiency. Significantly improving the performance of silicon solar cells on the same footprint, enables cost reductions that transform the economics of silicon solar energy generation.
Allows silicon solar cell and module manufacturers to break through today's efficiency limits.
Designed to be retrofitted into existing silicon solar cell and module fabrication lines using standard equipment, to increase production line capacity.
Allows silicon solar cell and module manufacturers to offer a higher performance, differentiated product.
Dramatically increased power output on the same footprint, reducing the levelised cost of energy (LCOE) of a solar installation.
Our perovskite-silicon solar cell has achieved a certified 27.3% conversion efficiency. This exceeds the highest ever performing single-junction silicon solar cell - validating the ability of perovskite to enhance the performance of silicon based photovoltaics.
