Oxford PV says it has made considerable progress in transferring its advanced perovskite on silicon tandem solar cell technology from its laboratory in Oxford, UK to an industrial scale process at its site in Brandenburg an der Havel, Germany after gaining €15m of European funding last month.
“HZB believe that perovskites present a significant opportunity to the future of photovoltaics,” said Rutger Schlatmann, Director of the PVcomB institute at HZB. “For this reason, at our new innovation lab, HySPRINT, we have significantly increased our expertise and attracted some of the most promising young scientists in this field. HZB’s collaboration with Oxford PV is strategically important to the institute, as Oxford PV is the ideal partner to further develop our solar cell technology knowledge and help support the commercialisation of tandem silicon perovskite photovoltaic cells.”
HZB’s expertise in silicon heterojunctions solar cell technology will support Oxford PV to further optimise the tandem cells and demonstrate production scale up for integration into large scale silicon solar cell and module production.
“Working with HZB to understand solar cell manufacturers’ silicon cells, will allow Oxford PV’s perovskite on silicon tandem formation to be fully optimised, to ensure the most efficient tandem solar cell, and the easy transfer of our technology into our commercial partner’s industrial processes,” said Chris Case, Chief Technology Officer at Oxford PV. “Oxford PV is now in the final stage of commercialising its perovskite photovoltaic solution, which has the potential to enable efficiency gains that will transform the economics of silicon photovoltaic technology globally.”
