Commercial Entrance Of Perovskite Photovoltaics: Challenges And Strategies
Estrel Convention Center, Berlin, Germany
10:00 - 10:20
During this talk, we will discuss the current status of the PV market, and how to enter it with a new technology. We will cover the advantages of printed perovskite photovoltaics, and how could it create new markets. The related challenges will also be addressed. We will discuss how Saule approaches these topics, and give a brief update about our advancements and recent demonstrators.
Speaker Biography (David Forgacs)
Dávid Forgács Ph.D. (29) - nanoscientist with 5 years of research and industrial experience in Organic- and Perovskite Photovoltaics, gathered at internationally recognized institutions. He carried out his master thesis at Fraunhofer-ISE, working on the fabrication and development of solution processed organic tandem solar cells in the group of Dr. Uli Wuerfel. He pursued his doctoral studies at the University of Valencia under the supervision of Dr. Henk Bolink, with a primary focus on fabricating perovskite / perovskite tandem solar cells. During his studies, he gained hands-on experience in the large-scale production of printed organic photovoltaics at Opvius GmbH. He joined Saule in 2017, and he is currently working as the Director of Knowledge Management.
Company Profile (Saule Technologies)
Saule Technologies is one of the first companies in the world working on the commercialization of perovskites in the new generation of photovoltaic cells. The company has pioneered the application of ink-jet printing for the fabrication of flexible, light-weight, semi-transparent and efficient perovskite solar modules. These devices offer excellent light harvesting properties in artificial- and low-light conditions, as well as custom design layouts - making them an excellent choice to power autonomous IoT, industry 4.0, and sensor applications. The first production line of Saule will be operational from late 2019.
