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, which 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:
Perovskite solar cells are the “rising star” of solar cell development in the world-wide research community of photovoltaics. The efficiency of stand-alone perovskite single-junction solar cells approach already the world record efficiencies of silicon solar cells and by combining perovskite cells with silicon cell to so-called tandem cells, an efficiency above 29% has been achieved by the international research community. However, the practical use for renewable energy production still requires improvements in the long-term stability perovskite cells. In our work group we therefore investigate the aging characteristics of perovskites in order to predict real-world performance under operating conditions and to guide the cell development at IPVF.
