Is Perovskite Solar Technology Ready for Commercialization?

Is Perovskite Solar Technology Ready for Commercialization?

Pervoskite photovoltaics are a breath of fresh air in the photovoltaic market. They demonstrated a remarkable learning curve, going from 2.2% efficiency in 2006 to the latest record of 20.1% in 2014. They have already supressed OPVs and DSSCs and are now, at least in terms of efficiency, in the same range as leading thin film PVs like CdTe and CIGS.
