The AU$2.5 million (US$1.9 million) grant will support a project entitled ‘Large Area Perovskite Photovoltaic Material Coating on Glass Substrate’ for 18 months. Dyesol will lead the project alongside partners CSR building products & its subsidiary CSR Viridian, and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO).
Perovskites are a popular area of research for PV developers, given their potential to further reduce the cost of producing solar energy. Stability issues and sensitivity to temperatures and moisture have long hampered commercial development of perovskites. However, the technology has recently seen some major leaps forward.
Dyesol says that its goal is to commercialize perovskite solar cell technology on glass substrates. The company has plans to shortly move from prototype development into pilot line production.
In Europe, meanwhile; UK start up Oxford PV is also moving towards perovskite commercialization, having purchased a former thin-film production site in Germany as a pilot line back in November.
