Innovation and Networks Executive Agency

ESPResSo

INEA ceased operations on 31 March 2021. The European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) was established on 1 April 2021 to take over its legacy portfolio as well as additional EU funding programmes.
Efficient Structures and Processes for Reliable Perovskite Solar Modules

ESPResSo is increasing the maturity level of the novel emerging hybrid organic-inorganic perovskite-based solar cell (PSC) technology.

This technology has reached cell efficiency values rivalling those of established thin-film photovoltaic (PV) technology and even approaching crystalline Silicon. The project is transferring this unprecedented progress from the cell level into a scalable, stable, low-cost technology at a module level.

The project will install an actual building-integrated facade element in order to validate the potential contribution of this technology to the future European energy supply system.

If successful, the project will demonstrate a highly efficient (>17%) perovskite-based 35x35cm² module architecture that shows long-term (>20 years) reliable performance which will allow a potential electricity cost of 0.05€/kWhe (in Southern Europe).
