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:
Be a leading force in our team and advance industrially relevant knowledge while pursuing scientific understanding to further advance perovskite cell and module technology:
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.
Your work in our team investigates the aging characteristics of perovskite-based solar cells and modules. Your results allow to predict real-world performance under operating conditions of PV installations. The scientific insight generated by your work is a key driver for improving the performance of IPVF’s perovskite solar cell development.
