Sustainability Talks - 23.01.2024

Das Institut INATECH und das Leistungszentrum Nachhaltigkeit Freiburg laden ein zum Vortrag von Prof. Dr. Jan Christoph Goldschmidt am kommenden Dienstag, 23. Januar 2024, 17:15 Uhr, mit dem Titel “Technological Learning for Terawatt-Scale Photovoltaics”.

Der Vortrag findet in Präsenz im Raum SR 02-016/18 Faculty of Engineering, Gebäude 101 Georges-Köhler-Allee 101, 79110 Freiburg statt. Im Anschluss wird es einen kleinen Umtrunk geben. 

Cost-efficient climate change mitigation demands installation of up to 80 TWp of photovoltaics systems globally. Producing the necessary modules and systems with an area in the range of hundreds of thousands of km2 is associated with massive flows of energy and materials. Luckily, the PV industry and research community is already achieving not only continuous cost reductions but also a continuous reduction in the energy and material demands. With perovskite-based tandem solar cells, novel technologies are emerging that will allow for a continuation of this trend also into the long-term future.

Prof. Dr. Jan Christoph Goldschmidt has been professor of Experimental Physics at Philipps-University Marburg since 2021. He studied physics at the University of Freiburg and the University of New South Wales before earning his PhD at the University of Konstanz for his work at Fraunhofer ISE. From 2010 onwards, he was Head of the Team "Novel Solar Cell Concepts“ at Fraunhofer ISE. Prof. Dr. Goldschmidt is a recipient of the DFG Priority Program grant for the project “Interfaces in all-perovskite tandem solar cells”, as well as the REACT EU grant for the topic of “Characterization and structuring for perovskite-based optoelectronics.” He has published over 90 journal papers, focusing on perovskite silicon tandem solar cells and photon management with nanostructures.
