The Rise of Perovskites: Identifying the Best Academic Partners to Work With

March 18, 2016 | State of the Market Report

Perovskite solar cells have garnered significant attention from both academia and the industry as a potential next generation photovoltaic material. Despite promising efficiency records, many issues must be addressed before market adoption occurs including stability, reliability, and toxicity. The key for doing so will be partnerships between industry pioneers and academic leaders such as those formed between Dyesol and Michael Graztel or Oxford Photovoltaic and Henry Snaith. In this report, we present the current state of perovskite solar cells and identify opportunities in academia with which to partner. We find publishing leaders such as Nam-gyu Park and Yang Yan are not tied-up, as well as numerous universities based in Europe, Asia, and North America. Clients should be aware of how perovskites can compete or integrate with existing technologies, while material clients can have a lot to gain in driving perovskite solar cells towards adoption.
