Perovskite: new technology paves way for abundant, cheap,printable solar cells (

A new generation of flexible solar cells has been pioneered using a material known as perovskite.  Scientists at Swansea University have pioneered a printable and rollable solar cell.

And what’s more, it can now be printed out using special inks and wrapped flexibly around uneven surfaces.

They have developed the world’s first rollable and fully printable solar cell made from perovskite, a material that is much less expensive to produce than silicon. If we can also improve their efficiency, this points to the possibility of making cheaper solar cells on a much greater scale than ever before.
