VIPERLAB 1st Public event
in conjunction with the ETIP-PV Annual conference
on Thursday 11 May from 14:30 to 16:00 PM Brussels time
Perovskite solar cells have shown remarkable progress in a very short time with rapid increases in efficiency, from reports of about 3% in 2009 to 32.5% today. Perovskite tandem solar cells are getting momentum as was highlighted by the German Chancellor Olaf Scholz recently in the World Economic Forum 2023 in Davos, and are now backed up by important community and infrastructures for their further development.
VIPERLAB is an EU-funded H2020 project that brings together a network of European-based scientists and research organizations engaged in the study and development of Perovskite PV to facilitate faster and more reliable technology evaluation cycles to enable rapid market entry of perovskite-based photovoltaic products and thus more widespread use of renewable energy conversion technology.
VIPERLAB 1st Public event was proposed in a hybrid format in conjunction with the ETIP-PV Annual conference on Thursday 11 May from 14:30 to 16:00 PM Brussels time:
The physical venue was located in VBO 4 Rue Ravenstein 1000 Bruxelles Belgium where the ETIP-PV annual conference took place outline from 10 to 11 May 2023.
The VIPERLAB 1st public event presented itself as a good occasion to learn valuable insights about the current status of achievements in the perovskite field and the main barriers that need to be removed to facilitate the massive scale market deployment of perovskite photovoltaics. It attracted a diverse range of stakeholders from industry, academia, institutions, and organisations.
It meant to shed light on several topics related to the status of achievements in the perovskite PV field:
Overall, 104 people registered to the event and more than 70 joined onsite or online. The conference was predominantly attended by representatives of the academia (research centres and universities) with approximately 60% of the overall attendance, while participants from the industry sector accounted for almost 33%. Institutions and organisations representatives also attended the event representing 7% of the participants.

All the presentations were recorded for the conference participants who were not able to join or for other interested stakeholders that could not attend online or onsite.

Additionally a panel discussion was organized with key stakeholders from industry and policy representatives to discuss the main barriers that need to be removed to facilitate the market deployment on massive scale of perovskite based PV.
