Making perovskite solar cells more sustainable, efficient and durable – these are the goals pursued by 13 European partners in the project SUNREY. The project aims to further push the development of highly-efficient solar cells based on non-critical raw materials and to strengthen the innovation potential of the European industry. SUNREY is funded by the European Union’s research and innovation program Horizon Europe within the framework of the Green Deal Initiative with 4.25 Million Euro. The three-year project started on November 1, 2022, and is coordinated by the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP in Potsdam, Germany.

Besides the development of novel perovskite materials with reduced lead content the objectives of the project are: more stable and more efficient materials, novel charge transport and electrode materials, cost efficient deposition techniques, barriers and device encapsulation as well as process optimization. Simulation of device and degradation mechanisms are a central instrument for reaching these goals. Life cycle, circularity and stability analysis as well as lifetime analysis under realistic lab conditions in an accredited laboratory are accompanying this development.

SUNREY is funded (€4.25 million) under the European Union's Horizon Europe research and innovation programme and is part of the European Green Deal initiative under the grant agreement number 101084422.
The three-year project started on 1 November 2022 and is co-ordinated by the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP in Potsdam, Germany.
The UK partners are funded by UKRI under the UK Government's Horizon Europe Guarantee (UKRI reference numbers: 10052189 and 10058454). The Swiss partner is funded by SERI under contract number 22.00401.
