Perovskites Center of Excellence

Perovskites are a novel class of materials that have been recognized for their transformative potential to increase PV power conversion efficiencies.

While notable efficiency breakthroughs have been recorded in laboratories, the solar industry has been challenged to transform them into stable, high-efficiency products at industrial scale.

To address this gap, Ascent has dedicated its Thornton production facility to the purpose of Perovskites manufacturing development, and to the conversion of Ascent's patent-pending Perovskites solar technology to industrial scale.

The Ascent Solar Perovskites Center of Excellence (COE) is resourced by a dedicated team of experts spanning Research, Development, Manufacturing and Operations; USD $30 million of industrial equipment at original cost; Ascent’s patent-pending Perovskites intellectual property; and operational facilities with 17 years of manufacturing heritage.
