Could Perovskite Solar Cells Be Close To Commercialization?

By Frank Andorka By Frank Andorka, Senior Correspondent

People are looking for the next big technical innovation that will revolutionize solar cells and, for the past several years, perovskites have been “the next big thing.”
Perovskite is a mineral that has been shown to have significantly higher efficiencies than polycrystalline silicon. The problems were twofold:
1) The width of the perovskite film necessary to see the efficiency jumps had yet to be determined; and
2) The cost of commercialization was still prohibitive.
But thanks to recent research out of the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, both of those problems may be one step closer to being solved.
