A Leader in Perovskite
We’re commercializing the most powerful and durable perovskite solar panel on the market
Accelerating to Net Zero with Perovskite Solar Panels
The renewable energy revolution is underway, but solar power, already the world's fastest-growing energy source, must become even cheaper and easier to manufacture to meet our climate challenge. Tandem PV is leading the charge by developing a more powerful, durable and affordable solar panel to speed the commercialization of perovskite technology.
"We've been consistently told by the top solar industry experts that Tandem PV has the best combination of high efficiency and durability of any perovskite panel in commercial development."
- Scott Wharton, CEO
Perovskite is the power behind our panels. This synthetic crystalline material is sensitive to wavelengths of light that conventional silicon solar panels do not efficiently convert to electricity.
Tandem PV’s design boosts the output of conventional solar modules by stacking them with thin-film perovskite. We are producing tandem perovskite panels with 26% efficiency—which is roughly 25% more powerful than the average silicon solar panel. We have also demonstrated the equivalent of decades of durability in the lab and plan to obtain third-party validation of our panels’ efficiency and durability during 2024.
Our tandem approach results in more power at the same price per watt, which leads to lower labor and land costs, resulting in a lower total cost of ownership.
We are also developing a robust portfolio of patents in core perovskite-layer technology,
system, and durability performance. We have several academic intellectual-property
partnerships, including a collaboration with the University of North Carolina.
Perovskites can degrade when they react with moisture and oxygen or with extended exposure to light, heat or voltage (just as silicon-based solar panels can). However, Tandem PV is drawing on years of solar industry experience and patented technology to demonstrate extended durability through a variety of technology and design innovations.
Our vision is to revolutionize the energy landscape, making clean and efficient solar power accessible to all to reduce our world's carbon footprint.
More powerful, affordable and easy-to-manufacture solar panels will be especially beneficial where land, labor, and rooftop space are scarce, whether in urban or remote regions of the globe. Our goal is to dramatically lower the cost of solar worldwide, accelerating the transition to a sustainable future.
