Oxford PV’s perovskite technology is a thin film which is applied to conventional silicon solar cells, improving solar gathering efficiency by 30%.
If we could harness solar power more effectively, we could dramatically reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and pave the way to a genuinely sustainable, electrified future.
Perovskite technology is 200 times more effective at absorbing the sun’s energy than conventional silicon solar cells. Oxford PV are pioneers and industry leaders in this area. Their co-founder, Professor Henry Snaith, explains how their technology, made with abundantly available, low cost synthetic materials, could revolutionise our approach to energy. Perovskite can be applied as a thin film – less than one micron thick - to silicon solar cells, dramatically improving the amount of energy generated by individual panels, so that solar farms of the future will require far less of our valuable land.
