Bernd Stannowski is Professor at the Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin

Prof. Dr. Bernd Stannowski has received and accepted a call for a joint S-Professorship for "Photovoltaics" at the Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin. The physicist heads the working group "Silicon Photovoltaics" at the Competence Center Thin Film and Nanotechnology for Photovoltaics Berlin (PVcomB) of the HZB.

Bernd Stannowski has been teaching since the winter semester 2018/19 in the course of studies "Physical Technology" in Faculty 2 "Mathematical Physics and Chemistry" at the Beuth University. Currently he teaches "Semiconductor Physics" and "Thermodynamics"; a lecture on "PV/Regenerative Energy" is planned. The call was made on 18 March 2019.

With his research group at PVcomB Bernd Stannowski develops and optimizes materials and manufacturing processes for silicon solar cells and thin film technologies - with a focus on industrial applications. The focal points of his working group include silicon heterojunction solar cells, which are used as efficient bottom cells for silicon perovskite tandem solar cells.

Bernd Stannowski has been working at the PVcomB of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin since October 2010. Before moving to research, he worked for 8 years in the PV industry and, among others, headed the process development at a thin-film photovoltaic manufacturer. He studied physics at the University of Duisburg-Essen and the RWTH Aachen. Then he completed his doctorate at the University of Utrecht, Netherlands, where he also worked as a postdoc researcher.

    Photovoltaics are growing faster than expected in the global energy system

    Dramatic cost reductions and the rapid expansion of production capacities make photovoltaics one of the most attractive technologies for a global energy turnaround. Not only the electricity sector, but also transport, heating, industry and chemical processes will in future be supplied primarily by solar power, because it is already the cheapest form of electricity generation in large parts of the world. This is where opportunities and challenges lie - at the level of the energy system as well as for research and industry. Leading international photovoltaic researchers from the Global Alliance for Solar Energy Research Institutes describe the cornerstones of future developments in an article published in the journal "Science" on 31 May.
