Present status and future prospects of perovskite photovoltaics
H. J. Snaith, Nature Materials Vol. 17 May 2018 p. 372-276
In his comment in Nature Materials from April 2018, Henry J. Snaith from the University of Oxford highlights the “rigorous life-cycle assessment” of perovskite-on-silicon tandem cells and module productions conducted by the two CHEOPS partners Oxford PV and SmartGreenScans.

At the international conference IEA PVPS in Brussels, CHEOPS partner Mariska de Wild-Scholten presented the analysis of Oxford PV modules with mono-cells, hereby stressing the need for an update of public LCA PV data sets. The presentation slides can be found here.
Roll to roll atmospheric pressure plasma enhanced CVD of titania as a step towards the realisation of large area perovskite solar cell technology
J. L. Hodgkinson, H. M. Yates, A. Walter, D. Sacchetto, S.-J. Moon and S. Nicolay, Journal of Material Chemistry C, 2018, 6, 1998.
The paper authored by the CHEOPS partners at University of Salford and Centre Suisse d’Electronique et de Microtechnique (CSEM) describe the use of a bespoke roll to roll AP PECVD process to produce large area, functional TiO2x films for use as hole blocking electron transport layers in perovskite solar cell architectures and highlights that a critical component is typically produced by spin coating or vacuum based technologies.
