Researchers from the Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra have a set a new record of 21.6 percent efficiency for perovskite cells above a certain size. According to associate professor Thomas White »with perovskites the efficiency is now competitive, and cost is one of the big selling points. The real challenge now is making them stable enough to be used on a rooftop for example, where they have to be able to last 25 to 30 years in extreme temperatures.« To achieve the record result, co-researcher Jun Peng developed a novel nanostructured material.
The team's results were independently verified by the CSIRO Photovoltaics Performance Lab. This study was completed with the assistance of Australian Renewable Energy Agency funding.
