GOTSolar

New film about our project!

The goals of GOTSolar and ways we are on to achieve them have now been described in a short movie. Grant executors from UPORTO and EFACEC tell the story behind their involvement in perovskite photovoltaics.

 

Power of mechanochemistry: A new multicomponent perovskite

Scientists working within GOTSolar have demonstrated a perovskite cell, in which a relatively large guanidinium cation was incorporated into the crystal structure of perovskite using solventless mechanochemical approach. Guanidinium perovskites contain less volatile amines and are more resistant to external factors than the parent perovskite. The higher durability of the photovoltaic cells is a considerable argument in favour of their commercialization.

A press release about this piece of research has been published by the IChF PAN. Full text is available here: http://ichf.edu.pl/press/2018/05/IChF180517a_EN.pdf

 

JPH2018 – an event supported by GOTSolar

For a third year in a row, the GOTSolar consortium, supports the French Workshop on Hybrid Perovskites. The JPH2018 took place 14-16th May 2018 in Grenoble-Autrans in the French Alps.

ABXPV Perovskite Thin Film Photovoltaics 2018: Summary and Pictures

27-28 February 2017, the GOTSolar consortium co-chaired a symposium devoted to recent progress in perovskite solar cells. The chairperson of the conference from GOTSolar was Jacky Even (CNRS/INSA Rennes), and the organisation work has been performed by NanoGe. The event was hosted in Rennes, France. The ABXPV18 attracted ca. 200 participants from all over the world.

GOTSolar featured by Euronews

The research of GOTSolar has been featured in Euronews. The short film shows the work on the preparation of perovskite solar cells. The topic is presented by the GOTSolar executors from EPFL Lausanne, University of Porto, and GreatcellSolar.

ABXPV Perovskite Thin Film Photovoltaics 2018: Programme and Invitation

The conference will be held 27-28 February 2018 in Rennes, France. The symposium is organised under the auspices of GOTSolar — a Horizon 2020 FET-Open project of the European Union.

2nd General Assembly Meeting in Ulm

The General Assembly of the GOTSolar project met in Ulm, 27 November 2017, accompanied by other consortium members for the meeting summing up the second year of work in the project. The main aim was to discuss the results and achievements, and state the directions and plans for the next year. The meeting was hosted by the University of Ulm.

The meeting consisted on the discussion of the general developed work within all Work Packages, from the beginning of the project, to update all partners and to allow an overall evaluation of the project. Technical and management actions for the future were also defined. Special attention was paid to the upcoming deliverables.

Technological Innovation Award for Professor Adélio Mendes

Professor Adélio Mendes, the coordinator of the GOTSolar project, has been awarded the Technological Innovation Award for his input in the areas of gas separation and renewable energies, as well as for creating connections between academic research and business.

The prizes were awarded 4 October 2017 at the Innovation Gala at the University of Porto 2017 as an initiative of the U.Porto Inovação and the Alumni Cabinet. This Innovation initiative has been created with the objective of recognition of the best contributions to the rising level of knowledge and creating a networking environment that fosters the creation of synergies between the University and the business world. It serves for distinguishing members of the academic community that stood out in the areas of Social Innovation, Artistic Innovation and Technological Innovation.

Our project GOTSolar was made possible thanks to #H2020 Funding

€30 billion is still available in the 2018-2020 Work Programme!

Perovskite Solar Cells Symposium at the E-MRS Fall Meeting 2017: Summary and Pictures

18-21 September 2017, the GOTSolar consortium organised a symposium devoted to recent progrees in perovskite solar cells. The chairpersons of the symposium were GOTSolar leaders: Janusz Lewiński (IChF PAN), Adélio Mendes (U. Porto) and Emmanuelle Deleporte (CNRS), and the local organising committee consisted of IChF PAN students. The event was hosted at Warsaw University of Technology. The PSC symposium was organised within the framework of the European Materials Research Society's Fall Meeting gathering 1000+ scientists in materials science in 20+ symposia of different topics.
