Photovoltaics (PV) is rapidly becoming one of the most important energy sources for a clean and widespread energy supply. In 2019 alone, 120GWp of PV capacity was installed globally. Every country has now realized that PV is not only the best solution ecologically, but also increasingly economically, with an average levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) End 2020 IEA declared PV the cheapest energy source ever. And we are only at the beginning of PV´s success story. In order to reach 50-80TW by 2050, further improvements in module efficiencies and reductions in the Balance of System (BOS) costs are key areas that require ongoing focus. Bifacial tandem technologies will play an important role in the coming 5-10 years and it is therefore high time to connect R&D and industry players from this emerging area to discuss standards, technology, and markets.
So, we are proud to announce:
tandemPV2021 workshop on 13th-16th April 2021 - Online
The goal of this workshop is not only to review existing technologies on the market for tandem PV, but also to set standards, identify further market potential, and improve bankability prospects. We hope to see you at the workshop in Berlin!

Events with participation of external organizers
(*) This is contingent on BESSY II is operating at a level that allows HZB employees access.
Deadline for application is January 15th, 2021, and acceptance for participation will be communicated by January 30th, 2021.
About the school and participation:
The program is aimed primarily at master students and other early stage researchers in physics, chemistry, materials science, engineering, and life or environmental sciences. Students will be introduced to advanced synchrotron- and laboratory-based photon science methods that probe the physical, chemical, and electronic structures of materials as well as the function and dynamics of complex material systems.
The next seminar Oliver Rader (Department Spin and Topology in Quantum Materials, HZB) will speak about "Developing materials for the quantum anomalous Hall effect: From extrinsic to intrinsic magnetic topological insulators."
