CEA is the French Commission for Atomic and Alternative Energies; a public body with 16’000 people and EUR 4.3 billion annual budget. It is a technology research and development provider; whose role is to transfer its know-how to industry. Within CEA, the division LITEN is a major European research institute and a driving force behind the development of sustainable energy technologies of the future (renewable energies, energy efficiency/storage and development of materials). It includes the Department of Solar Technologies (CEA-INES), organized in Division spanning the entire PV value chain.
CEA will lead WP9-JRA3, Characterization & standardization: stability, reliability, test protocols and standards. It will contribute in WP2-TA1, User friendly management of TA and VA to dedicated research infrastructures; WP3-VA1, Database infrastructure and simulation and data analysis tools; WP7-JRA1 Materials and device innovation infrastructure; and WP10-JRA4 Environmental, social and economic impact

Perovskite SJ and Pero/Si Tandem technologies are attracting significant attention from both scientific and industrial societies due to rapid increases in efficiency, from approximately 3% in 2009 to over 33% today. Several efforts are made to characterize the technological bottlenecks, overcome them and push the technology to the commercial world through the PV module upscaling. This imposes a pre-industrial stage, where different equipment from coating systems such as blade coating, slot-die coating and spray coating to printing paths such as screen, inkjet and gravure printing as well as methods of vacuum deposition and laser processing are currently used to support the potential of PSCs to move towards their industrialization. VIPERLAB today introduces CEA and IMEC VIPERLAB Research Infrastructures offering State-of-the-art equipment for Fabrication, Characterization, Encapsulation, Upscaling and Testing of Perovskite SJ and Pero/Si Tandem Solar Cells
