On 15 November, the best innovation project from the HZB will be awarded the Technology Transfer Prize 2019. The award ceremony is open to the public and will take place at 2 p.m. in the BESSY II auditorium at the HZB location in Berlin-Adlershof. All projects submitted to the competition will be presented in an exhibition starting Monday, October 21, initially in Wannsee, and starting November 4 in Adlershof.

Twelve projects have been submitted for the two-stage competition. In a first step a jury will select the projects which will be presented on 15 November along criteria such as degree of innovation and market potential.

With the Technology Transfer Award, HZB would like to honour outstanding achievements made by HZB employees in the field of technology transfer. A independent jury of members of the Industry Advisory Board evaluates the projects and determines the winner. They also take into account an audience vote that takes place after the presentations.  The ceremony is held in German language. 

After the award ceremony, you are invited to an informal exchange of ideas at the reception. We look forward to your participation.

    Environmental impact of perovskite-on-silicon solar PV modules lower than silicon alone
    Solar photovoltaics is a reliable and sustainable way to generate energy. A study has evaluated for the first time the lifecycle environmental impact of industrially produced perovskite-on-silicon tandem solar modules, provided by Oxford PV. The conclusion: these innovative tandem solar modules are even more environmentally friendly than conventional silicon heterojunction modules over their lifetimes. The study has now been published by the peer reviewed journal Sustainable Energy & Fuels.
