Become an actor of the Energy Transition by joining a team driven by innovation and impact to address today’s most decisive challenges.
IPVF – Institut Photovoltaïque d’Île-de-France, is a global Research, Innovation and Education center, whose mission is to accelerate energy transition through science & technology.
Gathering industrial PV leaders (EDF, Total, Air Liquide, Horiba and Riber) and world-renowned academic research teams (CNRS, Ecole Polytechnique), multi-disciplinary and international IPVF teams conduct research for clean energy technologies.
Supported by the French State, IPVF is labelled Institute for Energy Transition (ITE).
IPVF at a glance:
The research Program 1 “Techno-economic analysis and opportunities” at IPVF has the objective to assess the most promising emerging PV technologies with the best compromise between efficiency/cost/maturity, as well as to analyze market opportunities to drive the research programs in IPVF. The tandem concept provides the best possible route to surpass the Shockley–Queisser limit of single junction crystalline silicon (c-Si), facilitating the pathway towards IPVF’s goal of obtaining a 30% photovoltaic (PV) module efficiency. One promising architecture for this tandem technology, being investigated at IPVF, consists of depositing a high efficiency III-V PV cell on top of a c-Si cell, thereby making use of a larger part of the incoming spectrum. To evaluate its industrial feasibility, a bottom-up cost model of the manufacturing process flow needs to be developed.
