Metal halide perovskite-based photovoltaics (PV) have been the major breakthrough in the PV field in the last decade.[1] Recently new perovskite compositions replacing the lead by other elements, such as Sn, Ge, Sb or Bi, has attracted attention to reduce the toxic lead. [2] In this talk, I will present the results of vacuum-deposited methylammonium bismuth iodide (MBI) and the advantages and drawbacks of the coevaporated-MBI thin-film fabrication.[3] Due to the lower efficiencies of lead-free perovskite solar cells (PSCs) in comparison with lead-based, I will present the design and cost analysis of lead-halide perovskite panel manufacturing in different locations.[4] In this work, five different device configuration will be evaluated, being the active layer less than 1% of the installed panel input energy. The key parameters, such as levelized cost of energy (LCOE), minimum sustainable price (MSP) and energy payback time (EPBT), will be presented. Differences between the locations were identified and they were mainly affected by the price of the local glass processing.
