Organic-inorganic Hybrid PV Team
To drive a shift toward the installation of PV systems and renewable energy being used as a primary option, we enable efficient electricity production using solar energy that can be leveraged in many urban locations.
- Material and process development for innovative ultra-light weight and high efficiency PVs using perovskite solar cells
- Development of low-production-energy fabrication technology to reduce CO₂ emissions
- Branching out in applications for perovskite and organic PVs
Research Team Leader / Greetings
I first developed an interest in solar energy when I was in high school. I was fascinated to learn that photosynthesis occurs in the plants that grow all around us but with a conversion efficiency of just 3%. I then considered that humans should use this abundant energy source more effectively. Solar power generation is a highly flexible approach for power generation with renewable energy, in terms of the range of locations where devices can be installed. I hope we can contribute to the realization of a system for the local production and consumption of energy.
