Solar PV R&DProject Durable Silicon Perovskite Tandem Photovoltaics
This final report outlines how the project established new research capabilities including measurement protocols for assessing the stability of Si-perovskite solar cells. The report discusses key highlights and challenges in improving the durability of perovskites.
This Project fulfilled its aim to improve the durability of perovskites for silicon (Si)-perovskite-tandem photovoltaics (PV) which is critical for this technology to be truly cost effective. Long lifetime is critical to guarantee the same or lower levelized-cost-of-energy to incentivise manufacturers to invest in tandem-cell technology, which may be seeking the additional power generated by Si-perovskite tandem PV with high efficiency. This project completed the tasks as set out in the 4 Work Packages as outlined in the Project Overview.
