Hunt Perovskite Technologies (HPT) recently revealed that it has been selected for an award of $2.5 million in financing from the United States Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office Fiscal Year 2020 Perovskite Funding Program.
In addition, HPT is also co-Principle Investigator and collaborative partner in two other DOE perovskite funding award selections, including a $1.5 million award to SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and a $1.25 million award to University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC).
For its $2.5 million award as Principle Investigator, HPT will work with the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center, Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (ERDC-CERL) and with UNC to develop and demonstrate highly-efficient, highly-durable and lead-safe perovskite solar PV modules using HPT’s slot-die coating manufacturing process.
For the $1.5 million award in collaboration with SLAC, HPT will work with SLAC and DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to study perovskite with advanced characterization tools to enhance the efficiency and intrinsic stability of perovskite PV materials and devices.
For the $1.25 million award in collaboration with UNC, HPT will work with UNC and NREL to study and develop efficient and stable formamidinium-cesium perovskite solar PV materials and devices.
