The report added that perovskite solar cells (PSCs) are considered by scientists as a potential cheap alternative to silicon cells. Sandheep Ravishankar, a scientist researching PSCs at the Institute of Energy and Climate Research, Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany said that PSCs offer a much lower production cost compared to silicon solar cells and its efficiency has improved dramatically. He also said that PSCs are still not stable enough to be considered as a commercial competitor of silicon.

As per the report, scientists are also exploring using perovskite in tandem with silicon to increase efficiency. Research on the technology is being carried out in countries including the United States, Saudi Arabia and Germany.
