New Class of Solar Cell Hits Efficiency Record

A new type of solar cell, perovskite cells, from the tech startup Oxford PV, has just hit a new efficiency record of 15.4%, bringing them one step closer to a low-cost and efficient solution that can be integrated into glass building facades.

The latest iteration of the company’s flat junction perovskite solar cells is a “significant step forward” in the company’s work to scale up the technology and eventually commercialize it.

“Our plan was to continuously optimise our perovskite solar cells towards a goal of more than 20% efficiency but these results are ahead of expectations. I see no reason why we can’t aim higher now and accelerate the transfer of our technology into production.” – Dr. Henry Snaith, Oxford PV’s Founder
