Perovskite and Organic Solar Cells
Low Cost Photovoltaic Technology
Innovative Projects Aimed at Transforming Laboratory Research to Commercial Applications
ORGANIC-PEROVSKITE TANDEM SOLAR CELLS
Perovskite solar cell technology is the most rapidly developed solar technology ever – from 3% (2009) to 20% (2015). Promising prospect of reaching PCE >25 % in single junction and PCE >30% in tandem junction.
The tandem solar cell project is currently supported by Future Solar Technologies Pty. Ltd. (http://www.futuresolar.com/en) in partnership with UNSW and UNSW Innovations (NSi).
The solar panel yearly market reached $24.2 billion in 2014, a new study highlights significant growth in the solar energy panels industry, forecasting incredible growth from 2015 to 2021 - estimating a value of $180.7 billion by 2021.

Energy payback time for seven PV modules. P-1 and P-2 represents Perovskite module with different material systems. The estimations are based on rooftop-mounted installation, Southern European insolation, 1.70 × 103 kW h m−2 per year, and a performance ratio of 0.750. Source: Jian et al. Energy Environ.
