The Emerging PV Reports Initiative with contribution from Jülich

The Emerging PV Reports (Link: ) Initiative is an academic international framework including researchers from IEK-11 and IEK-5 for collecting, presenting and analyzing data about the best achievements in the research of emerging photovoltaic materials, e.g., organic, perovskite and dye sensitized solar cells, among others.

More than 30 researchers from 15 countries have worked out the fundamental guidelines for reporting progress in emerging PV based on peer reviewed publications. The first version of the Emerging PV Reports is available online and it can be cited as Adv. Energy Mater. 2020, 2002774


In order to guarantee highest data quality, outmost precision and best reliability, a series of criteria will be automatically verified when uploading data. We believe that the accurate reporting of record performance for novel, innovative and emerging semiconductors, independent whether they are demonstrated in flexible, transparent or rigid solar cell architectures, will support to accelerate photovoltaic materials science development.

Authors are invited to contribute to this database effort and upload their research data based on peer reviewed publications.
