Swedes prefer Polish perovskite



The Skanska construction company (as the first in the world) will start using Polish semi-transparent photovoltaic cells with perovskite for covering commercial buildings erected in Scandinavia, Europe and the USA this year.

Perovskites are crystalline materials that have a great chance to outclass silicon – the semiconductor most commonly used in photovoltaic cells so far.

Currently, the Polish company Saule Technologies is working on a prototype line of large-scale production of perovskite photovoltaic modules, thanks to support of Japanese investor, the National Center for Research and Development and several research grants of EUR 20 million.
