Highly Efficient Yet Stable Triple Junction Silicon Heterojunction/Alloyed Sn-Pb Low Band Gap Perovskite/Halide Engineered I-Br High Band Gap Perovskite Tandem Solar Cell

Project description

High-efficiency, low-cost multi-junction solar cells

Stacking solar cells one over the other offers a wealth of advantages: sunlight can be converted into electricity more efficiently and the levelised cost of energy is decreased, thereby becoming more competitive compared to that of fossil fuels. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the SiPerSol project plans to fabricate a triple-junction solar cell with energy conversion efficiency exceeding 30 % and stable operation for more than 1 000 h under different stress conditions. SiPerSol will improve the state-of-the-art technology by introducing highly efficient, stable, low-band-gap Sn–Pb and high-band-gap I–Br perovskites on a textured silicon heterojunction substrate.
