Thin-film solar: stacked perovskite/CIGS module achieves efficiency at 17.8 percent – Belgian-German cooperation
Belgian and German scientists have fabricated a thin-film solar module stack made up of perovskite and Copper Indium Gallium Selenide (CIGS) with a conversion efficiency of 17.8 percent. For the first time, this tandem module surpasses the highest efficiencies of separate perovskite and CIGS modules.
A specially designed agrophotovoltaic installation is tested at an organic farm in the Lake Constance region. It combines electricity and crop production.
