Solar cell efficiency evolution with time for different cell types. The efficiency of hybrid perovskite solar cells has sky-rocketed in recent years.

The Academy of Finland awarded Patrick Rinke on Tuesday with funding for the LearnSolar Research Project. In LearnSolar, Patrick will develop machine learning methods to design new perovskite materials for more stable, environmentally friendly and efficient solar cells. The results of this project will bring us closer to realizing the dream of affordable energy from the sun for everybody.
