Large-area perovskite solar modules with more than 20 % efficiency
Perovskite solar cells are a promising alternative to their silicon-based counterparts, owing to their high energy conversion efficiency and low fabrication costs. Although they could reduce the levelised cost of solar energy, their widespread adoption is hindered by the lack of efficient large-area devices. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the LrgPSCs project plans to develop large-area solar modules (200–800 cm2) whose efficiencies exceed 20 %. Researchers will implement a new solution-processing method to enable homogenous crystal growth and uniform thin films at large scales. Furthermore, they will investigate advanced interface engineering methods for bulk and surface passivation.
