Crete experimental PV electricity project secures EU funds

Australian firm Greatcell Solar Ltd  has received a EUR-500,000 Horizon 2020 grant for an experimental  solar project in Crete, involving the use of perovskite cells.

A perovskite solar cell uses a calcium titanium oxide mineral compound (perovskite) which is  cheap to produce and simple to manufacture.

The company’s unit in Rome, Greatcell Solar Italy, secured the funds for the project. As part of it, Greatcell will install a 10-sq-m Perovskite Solar Cell (PSC) array in Crete to investigate advanced technology in solar photovoltaic (PV) applications.

Greatcell pointed out that the project “aligns very closely” with its technology development plan,  which aims at making  available  PV technology that generates power at a low unit cost.
