Skanska and Saule Technologies commence revolutionary perovskite solar panels testing

Saule Technologies has been working with construction company Skanska on integrating Saules perovskite solar cells into buildings on a commercial scale. Now, it was announced that Skanska has gone through with the installation of the first big format perovskite solar panel provided by Saule Technologies, integrated into its office in Warsaw, Poland. The size of the solar panel being tested on Skanska's Spark office building is 1.3 x 0.9 meters, containing 52 photovoltaic modules.

Skanska stated that the use of perovskite technology for zero-energy buildings is the latest innovation in the developer's sustainable building strategy. Skanska is pioneering a method of covering office building exteriors with semi-transparent perovskite solar cells on a commercial scale.

Prof. Henry J. Snaith discusses perovskite PVs, their current status and future prospects

Scientific Video Protocols (SciVPro) is a no-fee, open access peer-reviewed video platform that publishes scientifically sound research from all areas of natural science and technology. The open availability of the video protocol on Youtube facilitates the dissemination of experimental details among the scientific community and the public at large, while promoting authors’ research activities and easing reproducibility of results.

SciVPro released a fascinating interview with the renowned Prof. Henry J. Snaith, Professor of Physics in the Clarendon Laboratory at the University of Oxford and Fellow of the Royal Society. He has pioneered the field of perovskite solar cells and published more than 300 papers. He is the founder and Chief Scientist Officer of Oxford Photovoltaics, which holds the largest perovskite patent portfolio worldwide and focuses on developing and commercializing perovskite PV technology.

Quantum Solutions demonstrated its perovskite QDs at Displayweek 2018

Saudi Arabia-based Quantum Solutions demonstrated its perovskite quantum dots (with a focus on its green-colored ones) at SID Displayweek 2018, in addition to its Lead-Sulfide (PbS) QDs.

Quantum Solutions says it uses a flow reactor to create uniform and high-quality QDs at high yields and minimal waste. The company also develops encapsulation technology to protect the perovskite QDs. Their current materials have a lifetime of around 8,000 hours.
