Perovskite and Organic Solar Cells 
Low Cost Photovoltaic Technology

Innovative Projects Aimed at Transforming Laboratory Research to Commercial Applications









































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. ( 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. Sci., 2015, 8, 1953-1968
