Industrialization of Perovskite Thin Film Photovoltaic Technology| Online

December 14, 2022

Over a decade of dedicated research and development in the realm of organic-inorganic perovskite solar cells has transcended this thin-film technology from the confines of research laboratories into the real world. This progress has spurred numerous companies worldwide to undertake the formidable task of scaling up production, with some already achieving an impressive annual capacity of 100 MWp.

These endeavors take shape through various strategic approaches. One approach involves the creation of single-junction perovskite architectures that compete head-to-head with established photovoltaic technologies. Another path focuses on the development of flexible, customizable solar panels featuring single- or tandem-junction cell structures, catering to specialized markets with limited competition. Additionally, a third strategy integrates perovskite technology with established photovoltaic systems in joint tandem architectures.

Luigi Vesce, a Senior Researcher and Lecturer in Nanoelectronics at CHOSE (Centre for Hybrid and Organic Solar Energy), Department of Electronic Engineering at the University of Rome Tor Vergata, is actively engaged in the exploration, development, and large-scale production of efficient and durable dye-sensitized and perovskite solar technologies for both indoor and outdoor applications. His expertise contributes significantly to the field’s industrialization efforts.

At the workshop Industrialization of Perovskite Thin Film Photovoltaic Technology, Luigi Vesce presented his research titled “Hybrid Meniscus Industrial Coating of Sustainable Perovskite Solar 320 cm² Modules.” This research aligns with the broader context of the industrial development of perovskite solar cells and complements the progress made by companies in this transformative field. This workshop served as a gathering ground for key players in this captivating industrial development. Its primary purpose was to provide updates on the progress made and the challenges faced by companies dedicated to the industrialization of perovskite solar cells. The intended audience included scientists and engineers in the solar cell field, as well as industrialists and investors intrigued by the burgeoning potential of this field.
