APOLO - Improvements defined by the APOLO consortium
© Projekt Apolo
Improvements defined by the APOLO consortium to the Perovskite technology during the four-year project. A stable, cost-effective, flexible and fully printed Perovskite solar module will be developed using environmentally friendly processes.

Over the past decade, Perovskite solar cells (PSC) have shown an impressive learning curve and have achieved an efficiency of 23% on rigid substrates since July 2018. The aim of the APOLO project is to provide flexible and stable PSCs using scalable and cost-effective processes with module costs below 0.40€/Wp. The APOLO consortium will work on advanced materials and innovative green processes to develop flexible and fully printable PSCs. A target efficiency of 22% is set, with stability criteria of 90% of the output power according to standard tests for accelerated ageing. APOLO aims to increase the Technology Readiness Level (TLR) of PSC technology. The solutions found in the APOLO project will allow the development of a completely new product by integrating modules into the architecture of buildings. Entry into new markets such as automobile, textile, etc. is also possible.
