Webinar: perovskites: the energy mainstream of the thirties coming out of the lab soon

June 11, 2020 | Online

Perovskites are a promising material system to make high-performance solar cells. They can be processed into thin, light, semitransparent modules that can achieve a high power conversion efficiency, are inexpensive to produce, and have a high absorption efficiency for sunlight. Because they can be made semitransparent, perovskite solar cells and modules can also be used on top of silicon solar cells. These tandem cells have a huge potential to boost the efficiency of solar panels and might even prove to be the most cost-effective approach to further improve the efficiency of photovoltaics. In this webinar Tom Aernouts (EnergyVille/imec) and Bart Vermang (EnergyVille/UHasselt) introduce you to the record efficiencies that have already been accomplished with tandem cells and highlight the further roll-out and development of tandem cells in for example cars, building materials, etc.

Tom Aernouts
R&D Manager Thin-Film PV at EnergyVille/imec

  • Tom Aernouts: Dr Tom Aernouts is R&D Manager Thin-Film PV at EnergyVille/imec. Tom Aernouts initiated the research on thin film solar cells at imec in 1999. In a short period of time this group has attracted a lot of attention with its fast progress in this field with world-record certified module efficiency of 12.5%, as well as a recently reported world’s first 4cm² module-on-cell perovskite/silicon stack with a power conversion efficiency of 25.3 percent, outperforming the standalone silicon solar cell. Also, first modules on 30x30cm2 have recently been successfully processed.

Bart Vermang
Professor UHasselt, visiting professor imec

  • Bart Vermang: Bart Vermang is professor at EnergyVille/UHasselt/imec. Bart’s work focuses on the development of novel materials for thin film PV solar cells and applications, including building integrated PV (BIPV). He is also project coordinator of the PERCISTAND project which focuses on the development of innovative materials and processes for all thin perovskite on chalcogenide tandem appliances.


Ronnie Belmans
CEO Campus EnergyVille

  • Ronnie Belmans: Ronnie Belmans is full professor at KU Leuven, teaching techno-economical aspects of power systems, electrical energy and regulatory affairs, among others. His research interests include smart grids, security of energy supply and the techno-economic aspects of the liberalization of the electricity market. Prof. Dr. Ir. Ronnie Belmans is also cofounder and CEO of Campus EnergyVille. Since 2017 he is chairman of the board of directors of the VREG, the Flemisch regulator for electricity & gas markets.
