PP2 Organic and Earth-Abundant Inorganic Thin-Film Cells

Program Package 2 involves collaborative research into a range of organic and inorganic thin-film solar cell technologies with the overall goal of demonstrating efficiency above 16% (raised from 15% in late 2015) during the program for cells of above 1cm2 area and of demonstrating the feasibility of costs below the SunShot targets. In late 2015 ACAP undertook to expand its thin film activities into a stronger focus on perovskites, an exciting "new" photovoltaic material.
