Lead-free halide perovskites for the highest efficient solar energy conversion

Project description

Developing lead-free perovskites

With climate change presenting an ever-increasing danger for the world at large, many seek to develop new or improve current clean energy solutions. With this in mind, a large innovation has taken place in the field of solar energy in the form of halide perovskites, which could allow for cheaper and more efficient solar energy conversion. Unfortunately, the weight of most photovoltaic perovskites is made up of more than 10 % of lead, which is against many regulations against heavy metals in electronics. The EU-funded FREENERGY project will develop perovskites that are both more efficient and cost-effective and with tin instead of lead. Tin is much less damaging to the environment.
