Using photovoltaic technologies to harvest ambient light from indoor settings is increasingly seen as a solution to powering the ever-growing number of Internet of Things devices present in homes and workplaces. Indoor Photovoltaics (IPV) is a key target area for applications of emerging thin film PV materials such as organic and perovskite PV. Needless to say, many challenges need to be addressed to realise the goal of sustainably powering smart devices.
This FREE webinar, hosted jointly with the Application Targeted and Integrated Photovoltaics (ATIP) EPSRC funded Programme Grant, showcases the latest developments in the field from the UK.
