Sandia National Laboratories will lead a center to improve the understanding of perovskite-based photovoltaic technology and determine the best tests to evaluate the lifetime of the new solar panels. The effort is funded by the Department of Energy (DOE), which recently awarded Sandia $14 million to form the Perovskite Photovoltaic Accelerator for Commercializing Technologies Center.
The efficiency of perovskite-based solar cells has reached 25%, approaching the levels of common crystalline silicon-based solar cells. Perovskite solar cells use common starting materials and can be produced at much lower temperature using more standard methods, said Joshua Stein, a Sandia systems engineer and director of the new center. This means…READ MORE
