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:
An economically and environmentally energy transition requires new components that are energy-efficient, long-lasting, and recyclable. For this to happen, innovations should address all stages in the product lifecycle, from design to end-of-life solutions.
IPVF has taken on environmental concerns as an increasingly essential role in technology development. Considering the lifecycle assessment (LCA) as vital as the technical and economic assessments, it serves not only as a basis to determine whether to move forward with a new technology, but also, it allows to provide recommendations for industrial best practices.
We have recently pursued an ex-ante LCA study of perovskite on silicon tandem modules at industrial scale , which is an emerging photovoltaic (PV) technology showing promising pathways towards commercialization. In that framework, we propose to complement the environmental impact analysis by assessing the end-of-life (EoL) of such tandem modules.
