Using a 3D chemistry approach to better the manufacturing process of perovskite solar cells, a team of researchers led by Switzerland’s École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) has announced achieving a perovskite solar cell efficiency of 23.9%, on an active area of 26 cm².
Sustainable Perovskite Cell Production: EPFL Researchers Offer ‘Elegant & Efficient’ Solution To Prevent Lead From Perovskite Solar Cell From Seeping Into Soil & Water
Tuesday, 27 Jul 2021
The School of Basic Sciences at the Swiss Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) recommends transparent phosphate salt as a restrainer for lead from halide perovskite solar cells from getting absorbed by the soil when the solar panel stops working, breaks or gets wet.
‘Provocative’ Optimal Scenario Suggested By EPFL: 75% New Wind & 25% Solar Power Capacity In Switzerland’s Alpine Region ‘Most Effective’ Way For Country To Become Carbon Neutral & Energy Self-Sufficient
Friday, 28 May 2021
If Switzerland can establish new capacity in a ratio of 75% wind power and 25% solar power in its alpine regions, it would be the most effective way for the country to become carbon neutral and energy self-sufficient, according to the optimal scenario suggested in a Swiss university, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) study.
Scientists At EPFL Switzerland Create Real-World Operating Conditions To Test Perovskite Solar Cells & Find No ‘Dramatic’ Difference In Energy Yield Of Devices During Day Time
Wednesday, 26 Jun 2019
Differences in temperature and irradiance variations in no ‘dramatic’ ways adversely impact the performance of perovskite solar cells. Even though the efficiency of the cells may come down slightly during the day, it recovers during night.
