Oxford PV Sets Record For Perovskite Efficiency

News

Tandem solar cell achieves 28 percent efficiency

Oxford PV, the UK-based perovskite solar technology company, has announced a new, certified, world record for its perovskite based solar cell. The 1 cm2 perovskite-silicon tandem solar cell has achieved a 28 percent conversion efficiency, certified by the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory. The achievement edges out Oxford PV's own previous certified record of 27.3 percent efficiency for its perovskite-silicon solar cell, announced earlier this year.

Chris Case, CTO at Oxford PV said that the record demonstrates “the unprecedented pace of our technology development. We are continuing to push our perovskite-silicon solar cell technology, with a roadmap that extends beyond 30 percent efficiency. The solar cells we are developing are not only efficient but also stable. Similar devices from our research and development facility have passed at least 2000 hours of damp heat reliability testing, in line with IEC 61215 protocol.”

Frank P. Averdung, CEO at Oxford PV added, “2018 has been a significant year for Oxford PV. Alongside the pace of our technology advancements in both efficiency and stability, our pilot line is routinely producing commercial sized tandem solar cells for validation by our development partner - a major manufacturer of silicon solar cells and modules. With new collaborations with key industry players strengthening our manufacturing capabilities, the foundations are in place, to move perovskite photovoltaics into commercial phase.”



CS International 26-27 March 2019, Sheraton Airport Hotel, Brussels

In its ninth year, CS International will continue to provide timely, comprehensive coverage of every important sector within the compound semiconductor industry. Presentations are split into 5 key themes and each industry key theme will be delivered by a keynote presentation from a leading industry figure as well as a market analyst presentation tailored to the theme. Together, the talks will detail breakthroughs in device technology; offer insights into the current status and the evolution of compound semiconductor devices; and provide details of advances in tools and processes that will help to drive up fab yields and throughputs. Attendees at the two-day conference will gain an up-to-date overview of the status of the CS industry, and have opportunities to meet many other key players within this community.
