Perovskite solar cells – Promises and expectations for the third-generation PV technology

Since their invention 10 years ago, perovskite solar cells (PSCs) have shown a dramatic increase in conversion efficiency compared with other so-called third-generation solar cells. In 2018, some laboratory tests found that a single-junction PSC cell could reach up to 23% efficiency. Its technology has benefited from developments carried out for dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC) and organic solar cells (OSC), also called organic photovoltaic (OPV) cells.

Bifacial modules lose Section 201 exemption in the United States but fundamentals remain strong as demand continues to grow from 2020–2023

In our recent insight from October 3rd, “US market to be standout global PV market in 2020 conditional to current ITC policy roadmap", we anticipated that “Restrictions to Bifacial 201 exemption likely to be imposed” because of a strong “push back from local US module manufacturers” since the June 2019 announcement. We anticipated that increasing restrictions were quite likely to be approved no later than Q2 2020. As such, the policy announcement has arrived earlier and more drastic than anticipated. The policy announcement has arrived earlier and more drastic than anticipated. On October 4th, the US Trade Representative (USTR) office announced that bifacial PV modules imported into the US will lose their exemption from Section 201 safeguard measures from October 28th 2019, thereby reverting its recent decision from earlier this year. The USTR claims to have assessed “newly available information” and stated that the exclusion of bifacial technology would “likely result” in significantly higher levels of imports, putting pressure on domestic manufacturers.
