Highest Efficiency Perovskite Solar Cells

Over the past 15 years, perovskite solar cells have emerged as one of the most promising new solar technologies. The versatility of perovskite materials, along with their solution processibility, mean that perovskite solar cell's efficiencies have increased rapidly.

As of 2023, the highest efficiency single-junction perovskite solar cell has a power conversion efficiency of 26.1%. This performance is certified by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.

The highest efficiency PSC was achieved by researchers at Northwestern University and University of Toronto (NU/UT). The details of this certified cell are listed below.

Efficiency PCE (%) 26.1%
Device Area (cm2) 0.049 cm2
VOC (V) 1.174 V
JSC (mA/cm2 26.13 mA/cm2
FF 85.2

Highest Efficiency Perovskite-Silicon Tandem Solar Cell


Silicon solar cells are the most widely adapted solar cell, due to their inherent stabilty and high performance. Silicon heterostructure solar cells are the highest efficiency single junction silicon devices, with PCE of 27.1%.

As solar cells approach their theoretical maximum efficiency, tandem solar cells provide a way to push solar cell efficiencies. Perovskites are both adaptable and versatile so are a great canditate to create perovskite-silicon tandem devices.

As of 2023, the highest efficiency perovskite-silicon tandem solar cell has a power conversion efficiency of 33.9%. This performance is certified by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.

The highest efficiency perovskite-silicon tandem solar cell was achieved by the Longi Solar. The details of this certified cell are listed below.

Efficiency PCE (%) 33.9%
Device Area (cm2) 1 cm2
VOC (V) 1.97 V
JSC (mA/cm2 20.76 mA/cm2
FF 83
