Developing a new generation of solar cells based on perovskite

With a PhD in Physics at Hasselt University and a deep passion for renewable energy related technologies, Bert Conings is harnessing his education and interest in the clean energy field to develop a new generation of solar cells based on a material called  perovskite.

This project promises to offer a cheaper, more powerful, and more broadly applicable alternative to current solar cell technologies. While there are not any products based on perovskite available on the market yet, Conings imagines perovskite solar devices will be ready for commercial introduction within the next few years.
