Online Conference

The Online Conference on New Generation Photovoltaics for Space (PVSPACE) took place from the 21st to the 22nd of June 2022.

Compared with the terrestrial environment, the cosmic space environment is very harsh. Space is characterized by ultra-high vacuum, extreme temperatures and also exposure to several high-energy charged particles and rays. In line with the fast-growing space economy, new generation of photovoltaic systems e.g., perovskite solar cells and multi-junction thin film PVs have been shown a great potential for compete with conventional PV systems in the space applications due to high efficiency in ultra-low-cost devices, low energy payback time, solution-process and roll-to-roll fabrication, high specific power and intrinsic stability against high energy particles and rays.

The scope of the conference was to gather international experts in new generation photovoltaics such as perovskite, organic PV or tandem between new generation and conventional PV, to have a fresh update on the development in the field and to define new opportunities of new generation PV in space applications. From space applications we consider not only those which are available nowadays such as satellite powering but also new space developments such as extraterrestrial bases, deployable flexible PV arrays, inflatable solar cells etc. The conference would also focus on space relevant tests of new PV technologies as well as the first experimental demonstration on the space environment.

Topics to be covered by the conference:
  • • Halide Perovskite solar cell
  • • Ionizing radiation test
  • • Space Environment advance PV test
  • • Flexible photovoltaics
  • • New generation PV
  • • Tandem silicon/perovskite, perovskite/perovskite or other tandems
  • • Large area fabrication
  • • Organic Solar cells
  • • Multi-junction Solar Cells
  • • PV Test Flight Experiments
  • • Space Economy
  • • Stability in Space Environment
  • • Sustainable Power for Near and Far Space missions
