Record-breaking, high-efficiency single crystals bring perovskite solar cells closer to market

A synthetic approach developed by KAUST researchers generates homogeneous and defect-free crystals that could fast-track the commercialization of perovskite solar cells. “Perovskite solar cells are the fastest developing type of photovoltaic technology, with power-conversion efficiencies rising from 3.8 percent in 2009 to 24.2 percent in 2019 for single-junction devices,” says Osman Bakr, who led the Read more about Record-breaking, high-efficiency single crystals bring perovskite solar cells closer to market[…]

CALL – Near-to-market solutions for the use of solar heat in industrial processes

Specific Challenge: The potential for the use of solar heat for industrial purposes is still largely untapped. The challenge is to reduce the technical complexity and develop cost effective solutions. Scope: Proposals shall demonstrate less complex and cost effective technical solutions which significantly increase the share of solar heat in industrial processes and which can Read more about CALL – Near-to-market solutions for the use of solar heat in industrial processes[…]
