2.3.3 Low-Weight Low-Cost Flexible Perovskite Modules
Perovskite devices have the highest power-per-weight ratios , as high as 29.4 W/g, amongst other photovoltaic technologies making them suitable for lightweight such as mobile applications. However, such a high specific power has been demonstrated with only small cells and no respectable output power has been achieved to date. Upscaling such low-weight PV devices poses extra challenges to the already challenging upscaling of perovskite PV.
• Develop new encapsulation-by-coating methods thereby reducing the thickness required by the front and rear barrier films, with the aim of demonstrating ultra-light large-area encapsulated modules.
