Perovskite solar panels developers

LONGi Green Energy Technology (LONGi)

Founded in 2000, LONGi Green Energy Technology Co., Ltd. (LONGi) is a solar technology that develops solutions for large-scale power plants and for different industries and households with its innovation-focused development. Eventually, it also plans to supply "Green Power + Green Hydrogen" solutions for global zero-carbon development.

Since 2015, LONGi has located its operations in Yunnan, China, and Kuching, Malaysia, to utilize the abundant local hydropower resources to provide clean energy for its facilities. LONGi plans to integrate solar power plants with pumped storage in areas that feature significant elevation differences and abundant sunlight, creating an industrial model for using solar. 

On its website, LONGi states that "the LONGi R&D team has achieved successive breakthroughs in key technologies. These include perovskite thin-film crystal growth on textured silicon substrates, high-efficiency bulk passivation and optical management, and these advancements have led to rapid improvements in the efficiency of silicon-based stacked cells".


Solertix is a start-up specialized in perovskite solar cells research and upscaling for industrial applications.

Solertix is based in Italy, and is a spinoff of the University of Rome Tor Vergata. It was created under the Organic Solar Center (CHOSE).

Solertix is working on printable, efficient and flexible perovskite solar technology.

At the end of My 2023, Solertix was acquired by FuturaSun.

Beyond Silicon

Beyond Silicon focuses on bifacial perovskite/silicon tandem cells. The Company aims to achieve  30% more power compared to existing silicon cells and have the cells serve as a drop-in replacement for silicon PV module manufacturing.

Beyond Silicon was founded by Arizona State University  alums Zachary Holman and Zhengshan Yu.


First Solar

Founded in 1999, First Solar is an American solar technology company and global provider of responsibly produced, eco-efficient solar modules advancing the fight against climate change.

 The company is a U.S-headquartered company and does not manufacture in China. First Solar’s advanced thin film photovoltaic (PV) modules represent the next generation of solar technologies, providing a competitive, high-performance, lower-carbon alternative to conventional crystalline silicon (c-Si) PV panels.

In May 2023, First Solar acquired Evolar.


Beijing Yaoneng Technology (Auner)

Beijing Yaoneng Technology Co., Ltd. was registered in Beijing (Haidian) Overseas Students Pioneer Park in 2017, and has obtained the Zhongguancun high-tech enterprise qualification. Its main business is in the field of new energy materials, and the research and development products are devices, processes and materials for perovskite/crystalline silicon tandem solar cells and modules. 

It is the earliest domestic enterprise dedicated to the industrialization of perovskite crystalline silicon tandem solar cells.


Evolisun Energy

Evolisun Energy, co-based in China and Germany, focuses on the evolution of lithium and solar Energy. Evolisun has been working on perovskite solar cells since 2010.

Evolisun is also dedicated to worldwide supply of battery energy storage systems embedded with vertical integrated and purpose-built solutions into the demands of residential, commercial and industrial and microgrid application.


WattByWatt is a Canadian company that grew from university research on perovskite technology.

WattByWatt offers complete solutions for the production, storage and management of renewable energies. The company develops electronics devices, energy production installations and more.

WattByWatt chemically synthesizes perovskite in their Quebec facility reproducing the inherent semiconductor property and ensuring a consistent product. WattByWatt’s patented manufacturing process means the PEROVTON photovoltaic modules can be manufactured without the expense of a clean room. WattByWatt’s perovskite inks can be thin film printed to manufacture sustainable, high efficiency photovoltaic cells and modules. 


Their SmartFlower solar panel follows the sun from sunrise to sunset producing and storing renewable energy in its integrated battery storage system. The company sees the use of SmartFlowers in agrivoltaic farming as a global energy game changer.

Verde Technologies

Verde Technologies is an NSF, DOE/SETO-funded startup, and NREL collaborator that spun out of the University of Vermont. Its core competency is the rapid transition from lab-scale to full-scale manufacturing of stable, efficient, and safe perovskite solar cells using existing manufacturing infrastructure.

Verde Technologies was founded by Doctors Randall Headrick and Richards Miller in 2021. With Randall’s expertise in thin films and Richards’ experience in the lab, the two invented a novel solar cell that will accelerate the renewable energy transition. 

Enel Green Power

Enel Green Power was founded in December 2008 inside the Enel Group to develop and manage power generated from renewable resources worldwide.

The Company manages more than 1,200 power plants on five continents and has assets in operation or under construction in many countries and manages development activities in a further 5 countries. It has over 56 GW of installed renewable capacity from a mix of renewable resources, including wind, solar, hydroelectric and geothermal. It's also one of the founding members of RES4MED – Renewable Energy Solutions for the Mediterranean and Beyond – an association created in 2012 to promote renewable energy and the infrastructure needed to deliver electricity throughout the Mediterranean area.

Enel Green Power is also involved with perovskite solar cell development, with plans to offer more efficient solar modules based on tandem silicon-perovskite cells. The final products are planned to reach efficiencies of around 30%.
