The 2nd edition of the tandemPV Workshop will take place from May 30 to June 1, 2022 and will be hosted by Fraunhofer ISE, Germany. The workshop will take place as a hybrid event in the brand new soccer stadium of SC Freiburg in close proximity to the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE) and only a few tram stops away from the beautiful historic city center of Freiburg. We are sure that this stimulating environment will provide space for a lively personal exchange and inspiring discussions.
- Day 1: Materials Research for Tandem Solar Cells
The first day will be dedicated to materials research, discussing the challenges in top and bottom cell materials including carrier selective contacts and interconnection layers for tandems.
- Day 2: Tandem Solar Cell Devices and Modules
On the second day, we will focus on tandem devices, with a special focus on silicon-based tandem cells such as perovskite-silicon solar cells. We will also look at other technologies like CIGS- or III-V based multijunction cells or pero-pero tandem cells. Since the interconnection and encapsulation of tandem cells raises new challenges, module technology will be another important topic.
- Day 3: Upscaling – Industrialisation – Yield
The workshop will be rounded off on the third day with an industry day, where topics such as upscaling, industrialization and long-term stability of tandem cells and modules will be covered.
